Fantasy Impact:

Additionally, Garrett Crochet will operate out of the bullpen, though we already figured that. It's a bummer for Kopech's fantasy value that he isn't be stretched out as a starter to begin the season, but his long-term home likely remains in the rotation. He dealt with Tommy John surgery and then opted out of 2020, so the organization likely wants to ease him in this season.
