Aaron Hudson

Notes 
 Gray talked about how he didn't like how the Yankees had forced him to use his slider and that he expected better results in 2019. Boy, did he get them with the Reds. His slider and curveball went from very good to great in 2019, and along with it improved all of his numbers. Armed now with a top-notch strikeout rate and peripherals that finally match his raw stuff, Gray should be drafted with confidence in 2020 as a reliable fantasy starter.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
If Hendriks' 2019 performance doesn't convince you to wait on closers, nothing will. An afterthought in drafts pitching behind Blake Treinen, Hendriks not only took the closer's role for the A's but also developed into one of the best relievers in the game. A velocity bump made his fastball nearly unhittable and he rarely gave up home runs. He'll be given the chance to repeat his performance, but whether he can is an entirely open question.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 My 2019 Charlie Morton (Favorite pitcher at ADP) goes to Sonny Gray. Gray had a huge breakout season in 2019 for Cincinnati and we have seen him be successful in the past. Even if he does regress, I do not expect it to be major regression, making him a great pick at his current ADP.
