Notes 
 Jansen finally reported to camp on Sunday, July 12, and revealed that he was delayed because he had tested positive for COVID-19. Dave Roberts stated that he expected Jansen to be ready for the regular season, which means he can be drafted as a top-10 closer.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
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
 He's not the dominant force of yesteryear, but he's still a safe saves source in the shortened season.
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
  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.
