Notes 
 Yarbrough is underrated in fantasy, but it may not be the best year to be invested in him with only 60 games.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Pressly has developed into one of the best relievers in baseball. His strikeout rate is pristine, he rarely walks batters, and he limits the damage as well as any pitcher. He won't see saves absent an injury to Roberto Osuna, but his number make him worth owning regardless.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Yarbrough relied on an opener plenty of times last year, and it helped his win potential, as he tallied 11 despite making just 14 starts. He greatly improved his control last year, leading to just a 1.00 WHIP, but his lack of strikeout upside and mediocre ERA should keep him as an option only in deeper mixed or AL-only leagues.
