Notes 
 Maeda should be the rare pitcher who benefits from a move to the American League. The Dodgers have moved him back and forth from the bullpen to the starting rotation to manipulate his innings and avoid paying him bonuses for years. Now, he should stick in the Twins' rotation, and approach the 175 innings he threw in 2016. Given that he had the highest swinging strike rate (14.6%) and chase rate (34.8%) of his career last year and will be moving to a division that saw three of the other four teams rank in the bottom seven in runs scored in 2019, consider the needle on Maeda moving up.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Urias will begin the year in the Dodgers rotation, so the biggest hurdle to him having major fantasy value this year has been cleared. His ability to miss bats is elite and although he's struggled with control a bit in the majors, he has all the tools to succeed. There's plenty of upside, so if you have a solid base for your pitching staff, don't hesitate to pull the trigger a little early.
