Notes 
 60 games diminishes the durability concerns but even 60 games would be a jump in workload and that worries me. Love the potential and that forces me to rank him this high. I have high hopes but he is in my minors opening weekend. That says something
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Peripherals hate what Minor did in 2019, but there gets a point in the draft where you're OK taking him for the volume he'll provide.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 UrĂ­as is the biggest faller for me, as he was a Top 100 player in my initial rankings. It's hard to trust the Dodgers to send Urias out there every fifth day for a full workload. It's time to buy in dynasty leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
The Rangers pushed Minor to reach 200 strikeouts and, although his 3.59 ERA shows he surpassed expectations, there was really fairly little to get excited about. Minor's FIP and xFIP were substantially higher than his ERA, his WHIP was mediocre, and his strikeout rate hardly impressed. He's a pitcher you draft to solidify the back end of your rotation, but nothing more.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Dodgers confirmed he was their fifth starter in ST 1.0
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 
 Urias will begin the year in the Dodgers rotation, so the biggest hurdle to him having major fantasy value this year has been cleared. His ability to miss bats is elite and although he's struggled with control a bit in the majors, he has all the tools to succeed. There's plenty of upside, so if you have a solid base for your pitching staff, don't hesitate to pull the trigger a little early.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
