Notes 
 Fried is a popular breakout pick, but will the limitation early on his innings be too much for him to be a top 35 pitcher?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Neris tested positive for COVID-19 but is back in camp and looks good to go for the regular season. He morphed into a reliable option in the ninth inning for the Phillies last year, and should be so again assuming his health permits.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Fried's 2019 was positive, but his 4.02 ERA and 1.33 WHIP left a lot to be desired. His 17 wins and solid strikeout rate masked some of the issues, but he certainly doesn't look like a pitcher ready to jump into the upper echelon. Still, Fried's FIP and xFIP were lower than his ERA, and his expected stats showed he had some bad luck. Put it all together and Fried's a decent option with upside, but not one who you should expect to lead your fantasy rotation in 2020.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
If Neris is the guy in Philly, he'll finish a lot higher than the 153rd player.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Fried likely has the highest fantasy ceiling of all Braves pitchers and certainly the most strikeout potential. You just have to be okay with the growing pains that come along with it.
