Notes 
 The only thing that would hurt Hand's value this year is if the Indians trade him away.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Rodríguez' biggest attribute last year was that he won a ton of games. You can't bet on that, so you can't bet on a repeat season for him, at least to the same level.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Hand didn't have a bad year by any means, but there were two major areas of decline. The first was a cratering of his ground ball rate, and the second was that batters simply hit his fastball much, much better than in previous years. Hand is a reliever, which means volatility, and his strikeout rate remains well above-average. But with just a club option left on his deal, he could be a candidate to be dealt if the Indians struggle out of the gate.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Other than finally staying (almost entirely) healthy, Rodriguez didn't make many gains in 2019. His ERA remained in the high-3.00s, his WHIP and walk rate were career worsts, and his strikeout rate dipped. His 19 wins mask what was an otherwise mediocre season. There's plenty of room for Rodriguez on a fantasy staff. But not at the front end.
