2021 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes

Ryan Pressly Note

Pressly had his usual solid season, but got the benefit of closing for the Astros after Roberto Osuna's injury. His numbers fell off a bit from the previous two years (his 1.33 WHIP was particularly out of character), but he will almost certainly rebound from the .365 BABIP he allowed. He's slated to again be the Astros' closer, and as such, should provide plenty of saves while giving fantasy managers positive value in ratios. That makes him one of the few reliable closers worth drafting at more than a late-round price.

Framber Valdez Note

Valdez was shaping up to be a fine sleeper this year, after he had a highly successful stint in the Astros rotation last year. But he fractured his finger early in spring training and the expectation is that he'll miss significant time, and possibly the season. Until you hear he's out for the year, draft him late as a potential stash candidate. But based on the early prognosis, he's a bench option at best, who you'll need to stash in an IL spot for most of the year.
