Notes 
 DeSclafani had a sub-4 ERA, and also a 9-plus K/9 and 10-plus SwStr% for the first time in his career. If he stumbles, Tyler Mahle is waiting in the wings.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
You'd like to see more swing and misses with Alcantara, but there's still upside there.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Desclafani quietly had a decent season in 2019, with a 3.89 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP, and more than a strikeout per inning. But his FIP and xFIP suggested he was lucky, and he lacks the upside of other late-round starters. In deeper mixed leagues where your rotation is solid and you just want someone to not hurt you, Desclafani is your guy. Otherwise, go for a higher ceiling.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Alcantara is a weird case. He went on a massive run late in the season in 2019, relying on his outstanding sinker to dominate hitters. His secondary stuff seems good enough to succeed, and yet the Marlins do not seem particularly high on him. He's dealing wth a rough spring, and even at his best, he's never had a season with a WHIP under 1.32. There's upside, but don't necessarily bank on it.
