Notes 
 Tyler Glasnow had Pittsburgh Pirates fans everywhere cursing the name of Neal Huntington more than usual with his 2019 performance. Well, at least early on, because then the injury happened to Glasnow, which is where the concern always is with him. He has top 5 pitcher potential in the league, and questioning how he will hold up over the course of the season is fair, too, even in a shortened year. He's an ideal back-end SP2 with unlimited ceiling.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
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
 Glasnow was limited to just 60 innings in 2019, but they were pretty glorious ones! His control, which had plagued him since coming to the majors, improved significantly, and his WHIP dropped to an impressive 0.89. He should be fully recovered from his forearm injury heading into the season and has the raw stuff to be a fantasy ace if he can avoid injury. There's risk with Glasnow, but it is worth taking.
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.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 A potential innings limit worries me after missing most of 2019, but he should be highly effective when healthy.
