Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Frankie Montas Note
Frankie Montas photo 40. Frankie Montas SP
Montas was one of the best starters in baseball until his season ended prematurely thanks to a PED suspension. Before then, he had used added velocity and improved control to lower is ERA to 2.63 and tally nine wins in just 16 starts. There's always a question of how a player coming off a PED suspension will perform the following year but, for the most part, they are often able to maintain much of their performance. Draft Montas expecting solid overall numbers, though expect an ERA in the 3.00s, rather than the 2.00s.

Luzardo has tested positive for COVID-19, though there have been few details as to his reported symptoms (or lack thereof). A prime breakout candidate, especially given the delay and the lack of an innings limit, Luzardo's fantasy stock is now in a bit of a grey area. Monitor the reports but be prepared to knock him down a few pegs in your draft absent positive reports on his health.

Sean Manaea Note

After various delays, Manaea made a successful return from shoulder surgery, winning four of his five starts and pitching to a sterling 1.21 ERA and 0.78 WHIP with solid strikeout numbers. The sample is too small to know if Manaea really took a step forward, particularly given his significantly higher FIP and xFIP. But it should give fantasy owners confidence that Manaea can contribute all year long to a fantasy rotation.
