Notes 
 A relative afterthought in many 2018 drafts, Foltynewicz fastened a 2.85 ERA and 202 strikeouts in 183 frames. Deploying fewer sinkers and more sliders helped unlock his upside, but beware paying full freight for an encore. A substandard 3.34 BB/9 could cause more trouble if a .253 BABIP rises near his .303 career norm. This was a case of not paying for the career year before elbow soreness threatened his wipe out multiple April starts.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Always one of baseball's hardest-throwing starters, Eovaldi finally parlayed his high-90s heater to a career-high 22.2 K% supported by a 10.7% swinging-strike rate. He also lowered his walk rate to a career-low 4.4%, leading to a 1.13 WHIP, 3.60 FIP, and 3.23 Deserved Run Average (DRA, per Baseball Prospectus). After re-signing with the Red Sox, he'd be one of the spring's top breakout picks if not for glaring durability and inconsistency concerns. Last year, he went from yielding one run in three combined starts to 21 in his next four. Eovaldi might give investors some headaches on the way to strong SP4 numbers in 150 innings.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 After posting an ERA north of 4.00 in each of his first three seasons, Foltynewicz put up a shiny 2.85 ERA in 2018. Part of that was due to a fortunate BABIP allowed of just .251, but he also earned some of the gain by boosting his K/9 rate from 8.36 to 9.93. While some regression should be expected, the bigger concern is that Folty has complained of elbow soreness this spring and may not be ready for Opening Day. That above all else should give fantasy owners pause.
