Notes 
 Ohtani didn't pitch at all in 2019 and likely won't do so until mid-May in 2020. But his bat looked just fine last year, proving that his 2018 skills he showed as a hitter were not a fluke. He'll likely settle back into a part-time DH role with the Angels, and if you can choose to deploy him as both a pitcher and a hitter in any given week, Ohtani should provide immense value as a fantasy player. Even if not, he should contribute on either end of the spectrum, so draft him with a high degree of confidence.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Other than finally staying (almost entirely) healthy, Rodriguez didn't make many gains in 2019. His ERA remained in the high-3.00s, his WHIP and walk rate were career worsts, and his strikeout rate dipped. His 19 wins mask what was an otherwise mediocre season. There's plenty of room for Rodriguez on a fantasy staff. But not at the front end.
