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
Soroka wasn't even necessarily supposed to begin 2019 in the Braves rotation but quickly developed into an ace. Although there's little reason to knock his year, his 7.32/9 strikeout rate ranked 49th out of 61 qualified starters. With an xFIP more than a run higher than his 2.68 ERA, there's every reason to expect regression. Still, there's room Soroka to continue to be an excellent fantasy option despite a step back, so don't avoid him during your draft.
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.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Wish his Ks were higher, but he was a stud from the start in 2019 and should be a valuable fantasy starter again this season.
