Notes 
 Arguably no player benefits more from a shortened season than Maeda. He won't be moved to the bullpen, and he's posted must-start numbers over his career as a starter. The Twins will be less incline to have him throw fewer innings, too, as they don't have the depth the Dodgers had.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
I mean, the Rockies aren't going to allow Wade Davis to close games, are they?

 One of the biggest beneficiaries of a shortened season
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Oberg turned in another stellar year despite pitching in Colorado, and took over for Wade Davis as the closer by the end of the year. Davis will enter the 2020 season as the closer, but given his performance last year, his leash is going to be fairly short. Oberg makes one of the better handcuffs to own, though it's more about his opportunity and less about his ratios.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 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.
