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
I like the strkeouts and I think Cincy wins a lot of games this year. He is imperfect in ratios and the park is unkind, but as my #2 or 33 SP I am ok with the flaws because I am high on the Ks.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 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
For someone who thinks he's the best player on the planet and an innovative genius, Trevor Bauer really only has one good season under his belt. If you're in a league that counts innings pitched, he has increased value, but outside of that, the strikeouts aren't worth the over-hyped price that comes with drafting Bauer."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 A potential innings limit worries me after missing most of 2019, but he should be highly effective when healthy.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Bauer may be one of the most talented pitchers in baseball, but he has exactly one season with an ERA below 4.18, a WHIP below 1.25, or more than 12 wins. Even on an improved Cincinnati team, there's little reason to expect him to do much better than those numbers. Bauer will give you innings and plenty of strikeouts, but fantasy owners would do well to largely forget 2018, and draft him with closer to a 4.00 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in mind.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Has never thrown 160 innings in a season before. Should provide ace-level production for however long he's healthy for
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Piled up a whopping 253 strikeouts in a down season. Reasonable to expect 4.48 ERA to drop a bit
