Notes 
 Look, the division is scary for a pitcher like Ryu who doesn't miss many bats, but he's going to be the workhorse that the Jays and your fantasy team need this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
It was surprising when the Marlins decided to trade Gallen to Arizona, but we are talking about a franchise that also traded Luis Castillo and Chris Paddack away. Gallen has a nice four-pitch mix, and if he replicates his minor- and major-league success from 2019, you're looking at a Top 50 pick in 2021.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 When healthy, Ryu has quietly been one of the best pitchers in baseball since his 2013 debut. But his preposterous year last season was surprising even for him. Ryu had the lowest BABIP-allowed on groundballs (just .162) of any pitcher in baseball in 2019, which led to just a 1.01 WHIP. Now in Toronto, that number is sure to rise precipitously and obviously have a negative impact on Ryu's 2020 numbers. That impact has been baked into Ryu's ADP at this point, so you won't have to buy him at his 2019 numbers. Just be prepared for regression.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Gallen was so absurdly dominant in Triple-A in 2019 that his MLB performance, while highly impressive, felt slightly disappointing. But his fastball, curveball, and changeup were all plus pitches in the majors, and there's every reason to expect him to continue to grow as a pitcher. There's somehow some question mark around his rotation spot, but cream usually rises to the top, and he should not only be one of the Diamondbacks' five starters, but he should excel. Expect excellent overall numbers and draft him accordingly.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  With innings come strikeouts for Gallen and 2020 is the year he pitches more of them and becomes a relevant Fantasy SP. He is a steal currently and Fantasy owners need to load up on their shares.
