Notes 
 Cease looked like the perfect post-hype candidate, but everyone in the industry had the same idea, which inflates his price. The addition of Yasmani Grandal cannot be understated.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
James was supposed to get the chance in 2019 before he got hurt in Spring Training. Then with Just Verlander hurt, he was locked into a starting role. Let's hope he still gets a shot at the rotation.
