Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Walker Buehler Note

A 5.22 ERA in April scared fantasy owners, but Buehler quickly recovered from the Dodgers' ill-planned "ease into the year" plan. He looked precisely like the pitcher his fantasy owners had hoped for after that, ending the year with a 3.26 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with a 29.2% strikeout rate. His meager five percent walk rate was one of the best in the league, and with an incredibly strong offense behind him once again, Buehler should excel in all four of the starting pitching categories in 2020. Have no concerns.

Clayton Kershaw Note

Peak Kershaw may be gone, but the version that remains is pretty darn good himself. Kershaw passed 175 innings pitched for the first time since 2015 despite starting the season on the IL, and although his ERA crept above 3.00 for the first time since 2008, his overall numbers remain elite. With strong win potential always present, Kershaw is a fine second starter on your staff. But his days of carrying a fantasy team are behind him.

Jansen finally reported to camp on Sunday, July 12, and revealed that he was delayed because he had tested positive for COVID-19. Dave Roberts stated that he expected Jansen to be ready for the regular season, which means he can be drafted as a top-10 closer.

Urias will begin the year in the Dodgers rotation, so the biggest hurdle to him having major fantasy value this year has been cleared. His ability to miss bats is elite and although he's struggled with control a bit in the majors, he has all the tools to succeed. There's plenty of upside, so if you have a solid base for your pitching staff, don't hesitate to pull the trigger a little early.

May has solid raw stuff and did well in a 34-inning cameo with the Dodgers last year. With David Price opting out of the season, May has a chance to slide into the fifth spot in the rotation and contribute. He's a late-round pick with upside.

Alex Wood Note

Wood will be in the Dodgers' rotation to start the year, and there's some reason for optimism. After an offseason spent with Driveline Baseball, Wood saw a velocity bump in the spring, and that usually portends better things for the veteran throughout his career. Don't go crazy with Wood, but he's fine as a late-round pick with upside.
