Notes 
 Foltynewicz' 2.65 second-half ERA made enough of an impact that we are coming back for more, one last time.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Gallegos is a perfect guy to take as your RP 2 late in drafts. The job should be his.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Foltynewicz was on nearly everyone's bust list, and his awful return from an injury only confirmed everyone's intuitions. But he really turned it on in the latter half of the season, pitching to a 2.65 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in the second half. No, he might not be the 2018 version of himself this year, but he certainly has more to offer than his overall 2019 numbers.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
There's no denying Gallegos' talent, and if he gets the job as the Cardinals' closer, he has the legitimate upside to be a top-five closer if everything goes right. Unfortunately, we're a long way away from there, as the St. Louis bullpen situation is a giant question mark at the moment given Carlos Martinez and Alex Reyes. Draft Gallegos for the ratios and hope for more, but don't yet think you've got a solid closer.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 I am buying into the bounce back for Folty as he drastically improved after his demotion and return to full health. He is largely discounted and is well worth a pick in the mid teen rounds.
