Notes 
 Last year, fantasy managers were trying to decide between Freddy Peralta, Corbin Burnes and Brandon Woodruff. We know who the clear winner was. If Woodruff didn't miss time with an oblique injury, there's no telling how good he'd be. The Brewers bullpen will be relied upon heavily with their other starters, so expect Woodruff to be the go-to length pitcher for them this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Rogers seems to have the trust of the Twins, and with them being the favorites in the AL Central, expect a ton of save opportunities.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Woodruff earned his breakout 2019, relying on his elite fastball to limit hard contact and avoid big innings. His solid control allows him to keep the line moving, and the Brewers' strong lineup adds to his win potential. Although he missed a large chunk of the season due to injury, he should be ready to lead the Brewers rotation this year, and can and should be drafted as a strong second-tier starter.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Rogers didn't have the Twins' closer role at the outset of the season, but he proved himself as Minnesota's best reliever pretty quickly. He built on his strong gains in 2018, further upping his strikeout rate and lowering his walk rate. He likely won't see all of the save chances this year for the Twins, but he should lead the way in opportunities. That, along with his strong overall numbers, makes him a reliever to target in fantasy.
