News

Brad Camara

Connor Rooney

Notes 
 A short season could benefit Martinez, who could be a Top 40 pitcher.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Pagán should lead the Padres in holds.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Martinez's shoulder weakness pushed him to the bullpen, where he eventually successfully took over for Jordan Hicks as the closer for the Cardinals. His 2020 role remains in flux, as it appears he'll be given an opportunity to win back the starting role he so covets, but his success is far from assured. Martinez should provide value in the rotation or the bullpen, so given that you won't need to spend much draft capital to get him anyway, don't shy away.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Pagan had a dynamic season with the Rays, racking up 20 saves and offering excellent ratios. But a move to the Padres takes him out of the closer's role behind Kirby Yates. He's still ownable for his pitching numbers and as a handcuff to Yates, but don't expect many saves absent an injury.
