Notes 
 The White Sox are going to score a lot of runs. The White Sox will probably have a lot of save opportunities. Alex Colomé is not that great. The White Sox will probably trade Alex Colomé. All of these things can be true.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
You can cherrypick Odorizzi's season a million different ways, but the Twins had it down to a science with him. He won't face a lineup three times, and that's fine, but you'd like to see more quality innings.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Few expected Colome to hold the closer role for the White Sox all season, but he did, totaling 30 saves in the process. His numbers were solid, though his FIP and xFIP were significantly higher than his ERA. The White Sox have big plans for the season so, if they're in contention, don't be surprised if they make a move for a more established reliever. But, in the meantime, Colome should provide plenty of saves in the first half of the season.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Odorizzi just refused to fail last year, and he was a reliable pitcher all year long. His continued gains in strikeouts and drop in walks, to go along with his 15 wins, led to a remarkably profitable season. But his xFIP remained at 4.33 and Odorizzi just never felt quite like a pitcher who was going to dominate every time out. Fortunately, you don't have to pay for his 2019 numbers given his ADP, so draft him at his price without much worry.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Odorizzi was great last season, having the best season of his career. He made tremendous gains in the strikeout category and made some changes to his pitching repertoire. I like him a lot at ADP because you simply do not have to pay much for a guy that has 200 K potential if he gets to 170+ innings.
