Notes 
 Very good SP that could break out in 2020. 60 games rather than the long, drawn out grind of 162 could help establish him as one of the best in the business on the bump without having to prove he can maintain his Ace stuff over the durability test that is a full 162. I bet he is overdraft in 2021, but in 2020 he could be a #1.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Everything that could go right, did go right for Bo Bichette in his rookie year in Toronto. Is he a .300 hitter? Probably not, but he'll hit around .285 with a power/speed combo that will play up in Toronto. Could there be an adjustment period in his second season? Sure, there could. Are there concerns that the performance wasn't legit? Not really, if you look at his prospect pedigree and his underlying numbers. The ceiling is sky-high here, and Bichette could be a top 5 shortstop off the board in 2021."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 The Padres actually managed to have Chris Paddack on an innings limit that didn't totally drive fantasy managers mad. He showed that he could hold up over the course of a full season, and he more than performed to the lofty expectations that were thrust upon him when he made the Padres Opening Day roster. Paddack is working on developing his curveball, and if he's able to throw that with more regularity, he's going to have three plus-pitches. We haven't even begun to see his upside."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Expected to bat leadoff once again this season
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Paddack earned his "biggest spring training breakout" award with an outstanding season, albeit one capped with an innings limit. The reins should be taken off a bit this year, which should allow Paddack to remain in a groove and build on his outstanding 2019 numbers. His fastball and changeup are simpy elite, and if he can continue to refine his curveball, he could develop into a true fantasy ace.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 
 Allowed more than two walks just twice in 26 starts, resulting in a 0.98 WHIP for the season
