 Shohei Ohtani will start the 2020 season as the Angels' full-time DH and will not pitch until mid-May.

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
When healthy, Ryu has quietly been one of the best pitchers in baseball since his 2013 debut. But his preposterous year last season was surprising even for him. Ryu had the lowest BABIP-allowed on groundballs (just .162) of any pitcher in baseball in 2019, which led to just a 1.01 WHIP. Now in Toronto, that number is sure to rise precipitously and obviously have a negative impact on Ryu's 2020 numbers. That impact has been baked into Ryu's ADP at this point, so you won't have to buy him at his 2019 numbers. Just be prepared for regression.
