Notes 
 The Indians had Carrasco on their lineup for Spring Training, so all signs point to him playing this year. If he pitches and can be healthy, he's an absolute steal here at this nice spot. The relief eligibility elevates him in points leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Look, the division is scary for a pitcher like Ryu who doesn't miss many bats, but he's going to be the workhorse that the Jays and your fantasy team need this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Carrasco was already dealing with plenty of question marks after losing much of last season to leukemia, and now has been diagnosed with a mild hip flexor. He's day-to-day but it's obviously not the start to the spring that Carrasco owners were hoping for. Continue to monitor his progress but he avoids setbacks, he represents a fairly steep bargain in fantasy drafts, given his past performance and the fact that last year can largely be written off to his illness.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
When healthy, Ryu has quietly been one of the best pitchers in baseball since his 2013 debut. But his preposterous year last season was surprising even for him. Ryu had the lowest BABIP-allowed on groundballs (just .162) of any pitcher in baseball in 2019, which led to just a 1.01 WHIP. Now in Toronto, that number is sure to rise precipitously and obviously have a negative impact on Ryu's 2020 numbers. That impact has been baked into Ryu's ADP at this point, so you won't have to buy him at his 2019 numbers. Just be prepared for regression.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Too many injured seasons for Carrasco throughout his career and he is having some soreness this Spring already. He has been "relatively" healthy over the last 3 or 4 years (2019 he had his physical issues), and I love the strikeout potential, but I can't help but be cautious here.
