News 
 Yu Darvish (illness) is expected to pitch three innings Friday.
Brad Camara
Thu, Mar 5th
Kirby Yates pitched a scoreless fifth inning in Sunday's 6-0 loss to the White Sox.

Notes 
 Darvish's season was a tale of two halves. He was utterly unplayable to begin the season, tallying a 1.56 WHIP through May and walking roughly six batters per nine innings. But Darvish pulled out of it and then some, walking only seven batters over his final 14 starts, during which he had a 2.95 ERA and 0.83 WHIP. Can you fully trust Darvish? Probably not? But should you expect him to pitch closer to his second half than his first? For sure.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Yate led the league in saves last year with 41, and continued to lower his already impressive ERA and WHIP. He has an elite strikeout rate and is outstanding at limiting home runs, which is everything you want in a closer. Josh Hader should be the first reliever taken but Yates should be a close second.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Which Yu Darvish will we get? If if it second half 2019 Darvish, he will blow his ADP out of the water, if it is first half 2019 Darvish, he will be a big loss of investment. Honestly know way of knowing, just depends if you want to take the risk or not.
