Notes 
 Lucchesi just doesn't do enough well to guarantee his spot in the rotation - especially with MacKenzie Gore and Luis PatiƱo knocking on the door.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Gray is another pitcher who would benefit from leaving Colorado. Also, water is wet.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Lucchesi's a fine pitcher, but he really only has two pitches - a fine fastball and an above-average changeup. Although he dabbles with a cutter, it's much more of a show-me pitch, and batters hit .291 last year against it anyway with an xBA of 3.10. It's unlikely he'll make many significant gains, but there's room on your roster for a low-4.00 ERA pitcher with nearly a strikeout per inning. Just make sure it's toward the back end of your rotation.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
It would be interesting to see what Gray could do on a team other than the Rockies, but at least we pretty much know what he'll do in Colorado. Pitch to around a 4.00-4.50 ERA, have a WHIP in the 1.35 range, and strike out a batter per inning. Forget about the magical growth we keep waiting for. Draft him at this numbers, which work in an NL-only or deeper mixed league.
