Notes 
 Workman is another guy who seems like a safe bet as an RP 2, but let's not totally ignore Matt Barnes.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Peripherals hate what Minor did in 2019, but there gets a point in the draft where you're OK taking him for the volume he'll provide.
Michael Waterloo - 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.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
The Rangers pushed Minor to reach 200 strikeouts and, although his 3.59 ERA shows he surpassed expectations, there was really fairly little to get excited about. Minor's FIP and xFIP were substantially higher than his ERA, his WHIP was mediocre, and his strikeout rate hardly impressed. He's a pitcher you draft to solidify the back end of your rotation, but nothing more.
