Notes 
 May has solid raw stuff and did well in a 34-inning cameo with the Dodgers last year. With David Price opting out of the season, May has a chance to slide into the fifth spot in the rotation and contribute. He's a late-round pick with upside.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
The projection models don't like Hamels, but he's a fine SP5 who can give you innings.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 In a year or two, he'll be a Top 100 player. It's hard to trust the Dodgers in a short season.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Hamels kept up his strikeout rate last year with the cubs, but his control waned, and he had the worst walk rate of his career. He's dealing with a shoulder injury in the spring and there's currently no timetable for his return. Add it all up and Hamels is only barely worth drafting until or unless we get some positive news.
