Notes 
 The Astros are going to rely on Urquidy with Gerrit Cole's departure. I like James more, but Urquidy is safer.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Keuchel is just an older, more boring version of Marcus Stroman.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Urquidy seemingly has the fourth starter's role locked down, and he offers and intriguing pitch mix, with an above-average fastball and changeup, with a decent slider.It's unlikely that the soon to be 25-year-old will develop into a consistent fantasy starter given his inconsistency, but he certainly has enough upside, as he showed in the playoffs, to warrant rostering in all fantasy leagues.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Keuchel moves from the Braves to the White Sox, which, on the surface, seems like a negative move given the change in league and home park. But, he'll be paired with Yasmani Grandal, one of the best framing catchers in all of baseball, and that's a huge boon to a pitcher like Keuchel who relies on movement and called strikes as much as any pitcher. In addition, other than the Twins, the lineups in the AL Central are hardly imposing. Keuchel is more of a matchup-based starter at this point in his career anyway, and fantasy owners should still be able to pick and choose when to deploy him.
