Notes 
 Last year, fantasy managers were trying to decide between Freddy Peralta, Corbin Burnes and Brandon Woodruff. We know who the clear winner was. If Woodruff didn't miss time with an oblique injury, there's no telling how good he'd be. The Brewers bullpen will be relied upon heavily with their other starters, so expect Woodruff to be the go-to length pitcher for them this year.

Who else will the Tigers turn to?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Woodruff earned his breakout 2019, relying on his elite fastball to limit hard contact and avoid big innings. His solid control allows him to keep the line moving, and the Brewers' strong lineup adds to his win potential. Although he missed a large chunk of the season due to injury, he should be ready to lead the Brewers rotation this year, and can and should be drafted as a strong second-tier starter.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Although Jimenez's numbers weren't pretty in 2019, he actually performed fairly well once the Tigers turned over the closer role to him. He'll never be a top-tier closer, particularly given that Detroit is unlikely to compete, but considering he's under team control for several more seasons, he should be given every chance to hold the job all year.
