Notes 
 Bumgarner is attractive this year if you're looking for solid volume from your pitchers opposed to high upside. He won't need to be built up, so you can count on consistent production from him all year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Price is another one of those veterans who are boring but will be extra valuable this year by giving you solid, non-elite innings. He's a big value gainer with the move to the NL West from the AL East.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Bumgarner's ERA approached 4.00 last year, but he stayed healthy all year and saw a velocity bump after two injury-plagued years. The move to Arizona is a downgrade considering the park change, but it's not quite as drastic as it would have been without the humidor. Still, Bumgarner's numbers were significantly worse away from Oracle Park last year (2.93 ERA at home, 5.29 away), so it's fair to exercise caution with Bumgarner. But, so long as you recognize him for what he is at this point in his career, he'll likely give you what you expect.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Although Price's 2019 numbers look ugly, remember that he had a low-3.00 ERA before giving up 20 runs over a four-start stretch after he was bothered by a cyst in his wrist. He had the highest strikeout rate of his career and his lowest FIP and xFIP since 2016. Now in the National League with the Dodgers, Price should have plenty left to give fantasy owners. Just downgrade your innings projections, as the Dodgers will likely look to keep Price's workload in check in preparation for the postseason.
