Notes 
 Maeda should be the rare pitcher who benefits from a move to the American League. The Dodgers have moved him back and forth from the bullpen to the starting rotation to manipulate his innings and avoid paying him bonuses for years. Now, he should stick in the Twins' rotation, and approach the 175 innings he threw in 2016. Given that he had the highest swinging strike rate (14.6%) and chase rate (34.8%) of his career last year and will be moving to a division that saw three of the other four teams rank in the bottom seven in runs scored in 2019, consider the needle on Maeda moving up.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Workman was never the guy for the Red Sox . . . until one day he just was. When he finally locked down the closer's role, he was fantastic, striking out batters at will and pitching to a 1.88 ERA. His WHIP hovered near 1.00 despite the fact that he walked more than 5.5 batters per nine innings, a feat which he's unlikely to duplicate. In short, while Workman will close for the Red Sox, he'll need to improve his control in order to hold the job for the whole year.
