Notes 
 Love the skill set and the delay to the start and 60 game sprint only helps Mr Paxton. Big year in 2020 for the Big K lefty.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
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
 Paxton looks to be healthy and ready to go for the Yankees. He may have short outings to start the year, though.
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
 Paxton will be out until at least early May (and likely longer) after undergoing a microscopic lumbar discectomy with removal of a peridiscal cyst in early February. Although his talent is undeniable, this is yet another in a long list of injuries for Paxton, who has eight injured list stints since the beginning of the 2014 season. While early May is the front end of the three to four month timetable, expect Paxton's absence to last until at least June and possibly longer if he has any setbacks.

 Let someone else draft the already injured lefty
