Notes 
 Tyler Glasnow had Pittsburgh Pirates fans everywhere cursing the name of Neal Huntington more than usual with his 2019 performance. Well, at least early on, because then the injury happened to Glasnow, which is where the concern always is with him. He has top 5 pitcher potential in the league, and questioning how he will hold up over the course of the season is fair, too, even in a shortened year. He's an ideal back-end SP2 with unlimited ceiling.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Doolittle doesn't have a tight grasp on the closer's gig, but people seem to be overreacting slightly about him not getting the first crack at saves.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Glasnow was limited to just 60 innings in 2019, but they were pretty glorious ones! His control, which had plagued him since coming to the majors, improved significantly, and his WHIP dropped to an impressive 0.89. He should be fully recovered from his forearm injury heading into the season and has the raw stuff to be a fantasy ace if he can avoid injury. There's risk with Glasnow, but it is worth taking.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Doolittle should likely close for the Nationals again in 2020, though Daniel Hudson's emergence in the late- and post-season last year could throw a wrench in Davey Martinez's plans. More concerning is Doolittle's dip in performance, as his ERA and WHIP were by far the worst of his career. A free agent next year, Doolittle's job security should be minimal, so don't target him as a closer in your fantasy drafts.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 A potential innings limit worries me after missing most of 2019, but he should be highly effective when healthy.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Doolittle came on strong during the playoffs and we've seen him dominate before but the full picture of his 2019 season was one of mediocrity. Should he return to that rate, he may be the first closer to lose his job with Daniel Hudson closely lurking behind.
