Notes 
 Lopez's overall numbers are abysmal, and he earned them, to be sure. For one glorious month in July, however, Lopez showed his potential, pitchng to a 3.41 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP with a 4.25 K/BB ratio. Unfortunately, his success was short-lived, and he's shown nothing to suggest he's on the verge of figuring things out. In 15-team leagues, fantasy owners can take a shot for a bench role. But otherwise, move on.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Volume is key this year. It's not pretty, but Porcello provides it.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
  Porcello's move to the National League makes him somewhat intriguing. His middling strikeout rate (17.4% career) will likely take a jump, and his overall numbers should improve with a move out of the AL East. Even with improvement, however, there's a long way to go before Porcello is contributing to a fantasy team. His biggest asset - his ability to consistently throw innings - will be far less useful with the postponement of Opening Day. He's a late-round filler for a deep pitching staff but little more.
