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
Who else will the Tigers turn to?
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
Although Jimenez's numbers weren't pretty in 2019, he actually performed fairly well once the Tigers turned over the closer role to him. He'll never be a top-tier closer, particularly given that Detroit is unlikely to compete, but considering he's under team control for several more seasons, he should be given every chance to hold the job all year.
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.
