Notes 
 Tyler Glasnow had Pittsburgh Pirates fans everywhere cursing the name of Neal Huntington more than usual with his 2019 performance. Well, at least early on, because then the injury happened to Glasnow, which is where the concern always is with him. He has top 5 pitcher potential in the league, and questioning how he will hold up over the course of the season is fair, too, even in a shortened year. He's an ideal back-end SP2 with unlimited ceiling.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
The A's haven't had the same reliever lead them in saves in back-to-back seasons since Grant Balfour in 2012.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Glasnow was limited to just 60 innings in 2019, but they were pretty glorious ones! His control, which had plagued him since coming to the majors, improved significantly, and his WHIP dropped to an impressive 0.89. He should be fully recovered from his forearm injury heading into the season and has the raw stuff to be a fantasy ace if he can avoid injury. There's risk with Glasnow, but it is worth taking.
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
 A potential innings limit worries me after missing most of 2019, but he should be highly effective when healthy.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 
 Has never thrown 160 innings in a season before. Should provide ace-level production for however long he's healthy for
