2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Austin Meadows Note
Austin Meadows photo 37. Austin Meadows LF,RF,DH
Although we haven't seen it for an extended stretch, what Meadows did last year, hitting 33 homers with a .291 average and 12 steals makes him well worth considering if he lasts into the fifth round of your drafts. There may be room for more upside as well.

Blake Snell Note

Snell's subpar season was limited to just 107 innings after he underwent arthroscopic elbow surgery. Although owners might want to shy away after last year, there were plenty of encouraging signs. His FIP and xFIP were roughly a run lower than his ERA, his 33.3% strikeout rate was actually an improvement on his breakout year, and batters continued to make incredibly weak contact. If healthy, he should return to dominance.

Charlie Morton Note

Morton only got better after leaving the Astros, setting career bests in innings pitched, ERA, WHIP, and strikeout percentage. Batters simply don't hit his curveball, which he throws more than a third of the time, and his fastball is nearly equally as effective. In a dynasty or keeper format, things may be different, as Morton speaks of retirement often. For this year, however, there is zero reason for concern.

Tyler Glasnow Note

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.

Nick Anderson Note

Anderson was exceptional with the Rays, though Emilio Pagan got the vast majority of the save chances. With Pagan now out of the way, Anderson may have the chance to lead a committee of Diego Castillo and Jose Alvarado. Even if he doesn't get the majority of the save chances, if Anderson pitches like he did with the Rays last year (52.6% strikeout rate), he'll be worth owning no matter what.

Brandon Lowe Note

Lowe didn't have a high prospect pedigree nor did he perform in his rookie debut but he blew up last year for the Rays, hitting 17 homers and driving in 51 runs in just 296 at-bats. Don't be surprised if that grows to 25 and 10 with a solid batting average over a full year.

Brendan McKay Note

McKay had a dominant, albeit brief, minor-league career, but struggled somewhat in his brief time in the majors last year. His solid control and excellent strikeout rate suggests he could eventually do big things in the majors, but considering he's battling a shoulder injury in the spring that stems from last year, he's highly unlikely to make the Rays' rotation out of camp. He's rosterable only in deeper and AL-only leagues.

Ryan Yarbrough Note

Yarbrough relied on an opener plenty of times last year, and it helped his win potential, as he tallied 11 despite making just 14 starts. He greatly improved his control last year, leading to just a 1.00 WHIP, but his lack of strikeout upside and mediocre ERA should keep him as an option only in deeper mixed or AL-only leagues.

Yonny Chirinos Note

Chirinos' strikeout numbers won't help you, but his solid control allows him to limit the damage and keep his ERA and WHIP under control. He'll have a spot in the Rays' rotation once again, and is an unexciting, but fairly reliable option, for deeper and AL-only leagues.
1 week ago
Hunter Renfroe Note

Renfroe's power is undeniable, but so is his ability to drain your batting average. He'll get a chance to play every day with the Rays, and so another 30-homer season is well within reach. Just make sure you can withstand elsewhere.

Yandy Diaz Note
Yandy Diaz photo 261. Yandy Diaz 1B,3B,DH
Diaz finally received some playing time and the bat was strong as expected with 14 homers in just half a season. The batting average has room for growth too so don't be surprised if a full season gives fantasy owners 25 homers with a .280 average.

Willy Adames Note
Willy Adames photo 282. Willy Adames SS
The Rays' kid shortstop was so bad in the first half that many figured he might get sent down to the minors but he picked up the pace, batting .278/.340/.467 in the second half which has many wondering if a full season 2020 breakout is in store.
1 week ago
Diego Castillo Note

Nate Lowe Note
Nate Lowe photo 348. Nate Lowe 1B
Lowe didn't do a ton in his 152 at bats last year but in the minor leagues he made it clear that he is a masher through and through. It would be no surprise if he ended the year batting .290 with 25 homers much like we saw in Trey Mancini's breakout 2019.

Yoshi Tsutsugo Note

Jose Martinez Note
Jose Martinez photo 366. Jose Martinez 1B,RF
Martinez was only given 334 at-bats last year even though he batted .305 in 2018. His batting average dipped but all of the underlying metrics suggest that was a fluke. If he plays the full season in Tampa, he could prove to be one of the great steals in 2020.

Zunino's but was so bad last year with a .165 BA that he may end up losing his job altogether, but we know there is no other C3 with this kind of upside. It wouldn't surprise anyone if he knocked 30 homers this year.
