Fantasy Impact:

Lacy is the second pitcher drafted in 2020, one selection after the Marlins took Max Meyer off the board. The 21-year-old out of Texas A&M was off to a roaring start this season, striking out 46 batters in 24 innings before the shutdown. Had the coronavirus pandemic not interfered his stock likely would've just kept rising. Lacy has the build of a starting pitcher. The only downside to his profile is inconsistent command and control, which could ultimately make him a reliever. Still, the Royals will likely give him every chance to become a frontline starter for their rotation.
