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
Sonny Gray was a favorite of many heading into 2019, as the thought was that he'd have positive regression from leaving New York. Boy, did he ever. The results look pretty legitimate, but don't forget that we've done this same song and dance with Gray twice, where he's disappointed managers in a big way after his big 2015 and 2017 seasons. If you can get Gray as your SP3, you're in good shape, but if you're counting on him to lead your staff, start planning for 2021.
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
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
 A potential innings limit worries me after missing most of 2019, but he should be highly effective when healthy.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
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.
