Notes 
  Yates was poised to be a major bounceback candidate after signing with the Blue Jays, but a flexor-pronator strain in his right arm is going to cost him multiple weeks, and potentially the year as he may need Tommy John surgery. This comes after he missed almost the entire 2020 season and had surgery in August to remove bone chips from his elbow. At this point, expect him to miss the year and don't bother drafting him in redraft formats.
