Notes 
 Strikeouts: they're addictive and why Corbin is higher on my list than maybe he deserves. His potential to get them. Nice schedule and park effects in the 60 game sprint structure of this season. Orioles, Mets, Marlins, Rays.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Yoan Moncada is going to have a high BABIP, but a .406 BABIP even for Moncada is high, and it's a big reason for his .315 batting average in 2019, which is the clear outlier of his albeit young career so far. Moncada saw his strikeout rate go down in 2019 to 27.5%, but his walk rate also decreased from 2018. For a player who has a 70 speed tool, his high for steals in a season in the big leagues is 12. The way the White Sox are with their approach to steals is a reason that you shouldn't expect Moncada, Luis Robert, or Tim Anderson to carry you in those categories. At a deep position, you can easily pivot away from Moncada at this price point.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Why is Patrick Corbin being underrated? Sure, his 2018 season raised eyebrows in a contract year, but he backed it up in 2019, which typically silences the critics. Instead, you're getting a safe - albeit with limited No. 1 upside potential - ace in the fifth round. Take it the value and run. Corbin allows you to either load up with hitters early on and have him as your fallback option, or he allows you to have two aces to give you a leg-up on your competition.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Moncada has imperfections but I can't help but dream on the tools. He is a physical freak with flaws that have prevented him from fully realizing his ability. I will continue to push him higher up my rankings than others do until I finally no longer can justify doing it. 2B/3B eligibility in leagues where he qualifies that way makes it that much easier to buy into the upside.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 Corbin largely followed up on his breakout 2018 season with the Nationals last year, again reaching the 200-inning plateau and pitching to a low-3.00 ERA. He continued to lean heavily on his outstanding slider, against which batters hit just .158. His walk rate and strikeout rate rose and fell just a tad from his peak, a trend that fantasy owners can expect to continue. But Corbin's baseline is excellent and even with further slow decline in skills, he should be an outstanding starter for a fantasy rotation.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
High upside pick, well worth his ADP. Broke out last season and is still only 24 years old. Has good a shot as anyone to jump into the top two rounds next season.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 About as consistent as you can get. Tremendous option if you decide to go hitter-hitter or even hitter-hitter-hitter to start.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Took a major step forward in 2019. Still just 24 years old.
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Has put up back-to-back seasons with 200 IP, 230+ strikeouts, and an ERA in the low 3s
