Notes 
 Read Smith, Will. Too many options in the Braves bullpen for Melancon to hold down the job for long.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Gray is another pitcher who would benefit from leaving Colorado. Also, water is wet.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Despite Melancon plainly not being the best reliever on his team, he'll likely enter the 2020 season as the Braves' closer. Melancon still has decent control, but the days of being a lockdown option are long gone. Draft him as a back-end closer, and understand that Will Smith will be looking over his shoulder all year.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
It would be interesting to see what Gray could do on a team other than the Rockies, but at least we pretty much know what he'll do in Colorado. Pitch to around a 4.00-4.50 ERA, have a WHIP in the 1.35 range, and strike out a batter per inning. Forget about the magical growth we keep waiting for. Draft him at this numbers, which work in an NL-only or deeper mixed league.
