Notes 
 Soroka wasn't even necessarily supposed to begin 2019 in the Braves rotation but quickly developed into an ace. Although there's little reason to knock his year, his 7.32/9 strikeout rate ranked 49th out of 61 qualified starters. With an xFIP more than a run higher than his 2.68 ERA, there's every reason to expect regression. Still, there's room Soroka to continue to be an excellent fantasy option despite a step back, so don't avoid him during your draft.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Wheeler's numbers declined from his breakout 2018 season but, overall, there were plenty of gains. He upped his strikeout rate and velocity, cut his walk rate, and set a career high in innings. Now with the Phillies, he'll see a downgrade in park, but because he's been able to avoid home runs over the last two seasons, the move should not have too much of an impact. Wheeler probably won't develop into a fantasy ace, but he's, at worst, a strong third fantasy starter.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Wish his Ks were higher, but he was a stud from the start in 2019 and should be a valuable fantasy starter again this season.
