Notes 
 May has been named the Dodgers' fifth starter by Dave Roberts, a surprising twist given the presence of David Price and Tony Gonsolin. Given the Dodgers' depth and their history, it's unlikely that he'll remain in the rotation from start to finish, but if you haven't drafted yet, move him significantly higher on your board.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Pomeranz likely would have, at the very least, factored into the closer's mix for San Diego prior to the Mark Melancon and Keone Kela signings. After finally switching into a full-time reliever role last year, Pomeranz shined, with a 1.45 ERA, a 1.02 WHIP, and a 39.7% strikeout rate. Although he may still be in line for save opportunities, the presence of Melancon, Kela, and Emilio Pagan muddy the waters. That's especially true given that Pomeranz is currently the only healthy and reliable left-hander in the bullpen. Pomeranz is worth a late selection until and unless Jayce Tingler declares that he's not an option for the ninth inning.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 May's horizontal movement is insane. It generates a lot of, what I like to call, "GIF love." The whiffle ball-esque movement of his pitches continuously send Twitter into a frenzy, which gives him the perception of a strikeout phenom. This simply isn't the case, however, as May's whiff rate ranked within the bottom 7th percentile of baseball last summer. For his career he has struck out 76 batters in 90 2/3 innings. That has come with a phenomenal 2.98 ERA, so it isn't as if May is ineffective. The lack of strikeouts simply lowers his margin for error. There's also a chance that the Dodgers could treat him with kid gloves yet again.
