2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Aaron Nola Note

Nola simply wasn't very good in 2019. His control took a major step back and batters consistently made better contact against him, particularly against his fastball. Whether it was an aberration for the youngster after two years of major growth, or whether perhaps Nola isn't as good as previously thought, is an open question. But given how drastically his control dipped, fantasy owners would be wise to give Nola somewhat of a pass for his 2019. He can't be drafted as an ace, but as a second starter? Go for it.

Wheeler's numbers declined from his breakout 2018 season but, overall, there were plenty of gains. He upped his strikeout rate and velocity, cut his walk rate, and set a career high in innings. Now with the Phillies, he'll see a downgrade in park, but because he's been able to avoid home runs over the last two seasons, the move should not have too much of an impact. Wheeler probably won't develop into a fantasy ace, but he's, at worst, a strong third fantasy starter.

Hector Neris Note

Neris rebounded from a spotty 2018 to become an incredibly reliable reliever last year and tally 28 saves for the Phillies. His stuff isn't overpowering and his control is mediocre, but his split-finger is elite and he leaned into it more than ever. The resulting increase in ground balls helped stabilize Neris' numbers last year and should again make him a reliable, if unexciting, option in the bullpen in 2020.
