Notes 
 2019 was an insane year by the ex-Cub who was traded for the ability to rent Aroldis Chapman. One of the worst trades in baseball history. This guy is a beast and 2020 could be the year he makes the case for being a Top 5 Fantasy pick going forward.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
As Frank Stampfl pointed out on Twitter, in 16 starts from July 2 to September 24, Clevinger put up the following numbers: a 1.76 ERA, 2.98 xFIP, 1.02 WHIP, 11.82 K/9, 2.21 BB/9, 15.4% SwStr, 66.9% F-strike, and 32.2% O-swing. That's an ace, and that's what Clevinger was being drafted as ... until he got hurt ... again. It's up to you as a fantasy manager to decide if the high ceiling is worth the low floor (hurt) or not.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 If you're taking Gleyber Torres as your second baseman, fine. No argument there. But if you're taking him as your shortstop, you're reaching. While young with a bright future ahead of him, thus far, he's proved to be a one-category standout with his power, and that's about it. He isn't bringing you the stolen bases or average that are needed to justify the cost with shortstop being so deep. Pass on him and fill another need."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Clevinger sustained a partial medial meniscus tear in his left knee on February 14th and underwent surgery. Although his 6-8 week timetable made it highly unlikely that he'd be back for Opening Day, the postponement of the season means that Clevinger should be ready to go when the bell rings. That should make him a top-12 pitcher at worst.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Gleyber had a monster season in 2019 and will be only 23 years old in 2020. A lot of people are fading him this season and I don't understand that much. He will help you everywhere except SBs and has the room to improve his average as well.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
One of my favorite pitchers in the league, but beginning the season hurt is never a good thing as you never know if and when he will be back healthy. Risky pick at ADP.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 A lot of 2019 production came versus Orioles. He'll play them just as often in 2020.
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Injury concerns but has potential to be overall SP1 this year
