Notes 
 McKenzie had a very successful major league debut last year, pitching to a 3.24 ERA, a 0.90 WHIP, and a 33.1% strikeout rate. His talent isn't in question at this point, but his health certainly is. McKenzie has a very slight build and has missed time with injury in his minor league career, including all of the 2019 season. Even if he stays healthy all year, Cleveland is likely to put a hard cap on his innings. There's a reward, but there's plenty of risk to go with it. Draft him for the back end of your rotation and hope he gets to 140 innings.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 
 McKenzie's big league debut on August 22nd was his first competitive game action since the 2018 season. While his initial impression was electric, McKenzie's fastball velocity waned as the season went on. This isn't unexpected for a young starter who has dealt with injuries as of late, but it's worrisome as his slender frame has some scouts convinced he's best utilized as a reliever. Fantasy managers should proceed with caution when it comes to the former top prospect.
