Notes 
 There's a lot of focus on the second-half performance of Yu Darvish, one in which he allowed just seven walks over his final 13 starts, but not a lot on his dreadful first three months of the season, where he was at best a streamer who was walking everyone. Maybe he figured it out, but the whole is a greater sample than selected stretches. For Darvish, you're likely looking at a player who will be somewhere in between. He'll be a strikeout artist, but he'll be an average pitcher who is fine - not great - in the other categories. If his first half of the season in 2019 happened in the second half of the season instead, we'd be looking at him as a late-round flyer at best.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
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
 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
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
 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.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
A potential innings limit worries me after missing most of 2019, but he should be highly effective when healthy.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 From July 12th through the end of the year Darvish posted a 2.76 ERA with 118 strikeouts and just seven walks
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Has never thrown 160 innings in a season before. Should provide ace-level production for however long he's healthy for
