Notes 
 Tyler Glasnow had Pittsburgh Pirates fans everywhere cursing the name of Neal Huntington more than usual with his 2019 performance. Well, at least early on, because then the injury happened to Glasnow, which is where the concern always is with him. He has top 5 pitcher potential in the league, and questioning how he will hold up over the course of the season is fair, too, even in a shortened year. He's an ideal back-end SP2 with unlimited ceiling.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
It was announced that Chapman tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday, July 11th. With less than two weeks left until the regular season, it seems unlikely that he'll begin the year on the active roster. With that said, it remains unclear exactly how long he'll miss and given Chapman's potential, he shouldn't slip beyond the top 10 closers in drafts.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Glasnow was limited to just 60 innings in 2019, but they were pretty glorious ones! His control, which had plagued him since coming to the majors, improved significantly, and his WHIP dropped to an impressive 0.89. He should be fully recovered from his forearm injury heading into the season and has the raw stuff to be a fantasy ace if he can avoid injury. There's risk with Glasnow, but it is worth taking.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Paying the premium for a closer isn't advised, because replicating that success from year to year - especially for breakout pitchers at the position - is tough to do. But when you have a closer who has been a top-tier option year after year, he's one of the few who are worth the investment. Chapman isn't the lights-out closer that he was in the past, but he's as safe of a bet that there is to finish top 3 at the position. That, alone, makes him worth the price.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 A potential innings limit worries me after missing most of 2019, but he should be highly effective when healthy.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Not as dominant as he once was but closer role remains safe
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Has never thrown 160 innings in a season before. Should provide ace-level production for however long he's healthy for
