2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Mark Melancon Note

Despite Melancon plainly not being the best reliever on his team, he'll likely enter the 2020 season as the Braves' closer. Melancon still has decent control, but the days of being a lockdown option are long gone. Draft him as a back-end closer, and understand that Will Smith will be looking over his shoulder all year.

Smith tested positive for COVID-19 and has not been at Braves camp yet as of mid-July. When healthy, he'll be the prime handcuff for Mark Melancon, but with a shortened season and with his health concerns, there's little reason to draft him at the moment.

Fried's 2019 was positive, but his 4.02 ERA and 1.33 WHIP left a lot to be desired. His 17 wins and solid strikeout rate masked some of the issues, but he certainly doesn't look like a pitcher ready to jump into the upper echelon. Still, Fried's FIP and xFIP were lower than his ERA, and his expected stats showed he had some bad luck. Put it all together and Fried's a decent option with upside, but not one who you should expect to lead your fantasy rotation in 2020.
