Ken Giles
News 
 Mets reliever Edwin Diaz did not a allow a baserunner or strike out a batter over the course of a scoreless inning in Wednesday's win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Ken Giles pitched a scoreless inning and struck out one batter on Wednesday in the Blue Jays' Grapefruit League win over the Orioles.
John Aubin
Thu, Mar 12th
Notes 
 Diaz's season was an unmitigated disaster. While his strikeout rate remained strong, his ERA ballooned to 5.59, his home run rate rose to comical levels, and his control waned. By the end of the season, he had ceded save opportunities to Seth Lugo and was relegated to mopup duty. Diaz's slider went from being unhittable in 2018 (.129 BAA) to getting crushed in 2019 (.297 BAA). He'll enter 2020 as the closer for the Mets, and reliever volatility is well-known, so don't be surprised to see Diaz rebound big-time in 2020. But just don't go into your season banking on it.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Giles may have had the quietest 1.87 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in the history of baseball. Add to that a a 14.09/9 strikeout rate and Giles was one of the best relievers in baseball in 2019. He'll be a free agent after this year so it seems unlikely he holds down the closer's role in Toronto all year. But he'll certainly help your overall numbers in the first half of the season at least.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Diaz is clearly an exceptional talent as demonstrated by his insane 2018 campaign, but we are talking about a 10th round pick who didn't even manage to finish among the top 50 relievers last season. Sure, the 5.59 ERA and 1.38 WHIP are likely to come down but will it happen long enough to hold onto the closer job all year?
