Notes 
 The Indians had Carrasco on their lineup for Spring Training, so all signs point to him playing this year. If he pitches and can be healthy, he's an absolute steal here at this nice spot. The relief eligibility elevates him in points leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Rogers seems to have the trust of the Twins, and with them being the favorites in the AL Central, expect a ton of save opportunities.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Carrasco was already dealing with plenty of question marks after losing much of last season to leukemia, and now has been diagnosed with a mild hip flexor. He's day-to-day but it's obviously not the start to the spring that Carrasco owners were hoping for. Continue to monitor his progress but he avoids setbacks, he represents a fairly steep bargain in fantasy drafts, given his past performance and the fact that last year can largely be written off to his illness.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Rogers didn't have the Twins' closer role at the outset of the season, but he proved himself as Minnesota's best reliever pretty quickly. He built on his strong gains in 2018, further upping his strikeout rate and lowering his walk rate. He likely won't see all of the save chances this year for the Twins, but he should lead the way in opportunities. That, along with his strong overall numbers, makes him a reliever to target in fantasy.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Too many injured seasons for Carrasco throughout his career and he is having some soreness this Spring already. He has been "relatively" healthy over the last 3 or 4 years (2019 he had his physical issues), and I love the strikeout potential, but I can't help but be cautious here.
