Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Kenley Jansen Note

It feels like we've seen the last of Jansen as an elite closer, as continued velocity declines and struggles with control led to his worst season as a professional. His overall numbers from 2019, other than his bloated ERA, remain fine, but this is not the Jansen that was once the top reliever taken in fantasy circles. It seems clear that Dave Roberts lost a little faith in Jansen last year and with a World Series or bust mentality, don't expect the leash to be overly long. Still, beggars can't be choosers with closer, and Jansen's contract and lengthy pedigree still keep him as a borderline top-10 reliever.

Julio Urias Note

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.

Ross Stripling Note

When the Dodgers traded Stripling, he soared up draft boards but now that the deal was canceled, he may very well return to the bullpen. We've seen this before though, and he is likely to end up with 100+ great innings regardless. With his pricetag being what it is, fantasy owners are getting a downright steal because of the lofty upside.

Dustin May Note

May has solid raw stuff and did well in a 34-inning cameo with the Dodgers last year. But he looks like the odd man out with Julio Urias and Alex Wood all but guaranteed rotation spots. He's not a bad stash candidate, but don't expect him to be in the rotation for the foreseeable future.
