News 
 Kenley Jansen has retired all nine batters he's faced this spring, and has struck out six. Jansen is throwing fewer cutters this spring and is instead focusing on mixing his fastball and slider.
Connor Rooney
Mon, Mar 2nd
 
 Kenley Jansen made his second spring outing while continuing to look impressive with increased velocity. Jansen was sitting 93 MPH and touched 94 MPH. His velocity has dipped over the past two seasons which resulted in a meager 14.5% HR/FB.
Matthew Davis

Notes 
 It feels like we've seen the last of Jansen as an elite closer, as continued velocity declines and struggles with control led to his worst season as a professional. His overall numbers from 2019, other than his bloated ERA, remain fine, but this is not the Jansen that was once the top reliever taken in fantasy circles. It seems clear that Dave Roberts lost a little faith in Jansen last year and with a World Series or bust mentality, don't expect the leash to be overly long. Still, beggars can't be choosers with closer, and Jansen's contract and lengthy pedigree still keep him as a borderline top-10 reliever.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Lynn was truly phenomenal last season, turning his velocity gains into both an increase in strikeout rate and a massive drop in walk rate. Everything Lynn did in 2019 was backed up by his underlying metrics, so there's plenty of reason for optimism in 2020. But it's fair to consider how out of character Lynn's year was, an add just a wee bit of caution to your projections.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  If he can replicate his 2019 season he will be a tremendous value at ADP. A 200+ K pitcher with a strong ERA and Whip in the 9th-10th round is very alluring. Had an FIP even better than his ERA in 2019, so there is reason for optimism.
