Notes 
 A former elite prospect, Glasnow couldn't quite get his act together in Pittsburgh, but things started looking up when he was moved to the Rays. He struggled mightily with the long ball during his brief stint in Tampa, but the much more important thing is that he nearly cut his walk rate in half. Glasnow can miss bats with the best of them, so if he can stop giving away so many free passes we could suddenly be looking at a pitcher who can provide solid ratios to go along with the elite strikeout numbers. He's an exciting breakout candidate.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Herrera was presumably signed to close for the White Sox, but they also added Alex Colome who has closing experience. This one is too close to call for now so you may want to add both in a late round just to make sure you get some saves.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 The former top pitching prospect has struggled enough with his command that the Pirates relegated him back to Triple-A and eventually the bullpen. Once he was traded to Tampa, however, Glasnow showed flashes of his true-ace stuff. In the second half, his walk rate plummeted and he surrendered just a .195 batting average. Perhaps more impressive is the fact that he struck out 11 hitters per nine innings, which is the same as Blake Snell and Patrick Corbin and better than Stephen Strasburg and Luis Severino. With a full season, we could be looking at 220+ Ks to go with solid ratios.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 
 Looking like a lost cause in Pittsburgh, Glasnow revitalized his career following a midseason trade to Tampa Bay. The former elite prospect posted a 4.20 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 64 strikeouts in 55.2 frames. The burgeoning hype would be much bigger if not for getting tagged for seven runs by Toronto in the first frame on Sept. 5. His 19 walks in 11 starts actually represented a stark, and workable improvement over past abhorrent command, and he has reportedly thrown his fastball at 98.7 mph (a full two ticks above last season's average velocity) in camp. His rising price is going to skyrocket if the 6'8" righty throws that hard in a spring training game.
