Notes 
 The Reds have messed around with Iglesias in the past as far as keeping him in the closer's role, but all signs point to him staying there this year. He's a nice value pick.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
It's not if Luzardo will pitch any innings for the A's this year, it's how how many? With the short season, will he be limited to four- to five-inning outings? He's a wild card with a bright future.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Iglesias walked fewer and struck out more batters than ever, winding up with 34 saves last year. And yet it always felt like he was on the precipice of losing his job as the closer, particularly in light of his whopping 12 losses. Iglesias is still under control for two more seasons and, so long as he can continue to pitch relatively effectively, should be able to hold down the ninth-inning job in 2020. But there should be at least some trepidation among fantasy owners in light of his ups and downs last year.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
It's going to be difficult to find a fantasy player who isn't salivating to draft Luzardo, particularly after an expected breakout season was derailed by injuries last year. Now, purportedly without an innings restriction, Luzardo looks ready to fulfill the potential he has oozed throughout his career. Armed with four elite pitches and the ability to sit at 96 miles per hour, the only thing that looks to be able to hold Luzardo down is health. Absent injury concerns, he should be a monster.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  I want to move Lazardo further up these rankings because of his lights-out arsenal and pitching in Oakland helps those ratio's, but rookie innings limits are real and I am concerned that he won't pitch enough to reach his enormous ceiling. Guarantee me 210 innings pitched and he is a Top 40 Pick for me. I expect more like 130-150 and with some rookie struggles, that drops him down significantly. 2021 he will be hotter than Walker Buehler was.
