Notes 
 Luzardo has tested positive for COVID-19, though there have been few details as to his reported symptoms (or lack thereof). A prime breakout candidate, especially given the delay and the lack of an innings limit, Luzardo's fantasy stock is now in a bit of a grey area. Monitor the reports but be prepared to knock him down a few pegs in your draft absent positive reports on his health.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Neris tested positive for COVID-19 but is back in camp and looks good to go for the regular season. He morphed into a reliable option in the ninth inning for the Phillies last year, and should be so again assuming his health permits.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 It's not if Luzardo will pitch any innings for the A's this year, it's how how many? With the short season, will he be limited to four- to five-inning outings? He's a wild card with a bright future.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If Neris is the guy in Philly, he'll finish a lot higher than the 153rd player.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 I want to move Lazardo further up these rankings because of his lights-out arsenal and pitching in Oakland helps those ratio's, but rookie innings limits are real and I am concerned that he won't pitch enough to reach his enormous ceiling. Guarantee me 210 innings pitched and he is a Top 40 Pick for me. I expect more like 130-150 and with some rookie struggles, that drops him down significantly. 2021 he will be hotter than Walker Buehler was.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 
 Should be elite whenever he pitches. It's fair to wonder how deep he pitches into games and how many starts he ultimately makes
