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
Bumgarner is attractive this year if you're looking for solid volume from your pitchers opposed to high upside. He won't need to be built up, so you can count on consistent production from him all 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
Bumgarner's ERA approached 4.00 last year, but he stayed healthy all year and saw a velocity bump after two injury-plagued years. The move to Arizona is a downgrade considering the park change, but it's not quite as drastic as it would have been without the humidor. Still, Bumgarner's numbers were significantly worse away from Oracle Park last year (2.93 ERA at home, 5.29 away), so it's fair to exercise caution with Bumgarner. But, so long as you recognize him for what he is at this point in his career, he'll likely give you what you expect.
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.
