  Driveline Baseball is well-known for progressing the evolution for pitchers in regards to increase in velocity while building strength, resulting in a healthier season. Visiting Driveline could only be a positive component this upcoming season for the soon-to-be 32-year-old.

Notes 
 Bieber was simply fantastic in 2019 and gave you everything you want from a stud pitcher. He was second in the league innings, had a 3.28 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP, and was top-10 in strikeout and walk rates. He gave up his fair share of home runs but, overall, there are next to no complaint about Bieber. Draft him with confidence as a low-end ace.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Peak Kershaw may be gone, but the version that remains is pretty darn good himself. Kershaw passed 175 innings pitched for the first time since 2015 despite starting the season on the IL, and although his ERA crept above 3.00 for the first time since 2008, his overall numbers remain elite. With strong win potential always present, Kershaw is a fine second starter on your staff. But his days of carrying a fantasy team are behind him.
