2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Edwin Diaz Note

Diaz's season was an unmitigated disaster. While his strikeout rate remained strong, his ERA ballooned to 5.59, his home run rate rose to comical levels, and his control waned. By the end of the season, he had ceded save opportunities to Seth Lugo and was relegated to mopup duty. Diaz's slider went from being unhittable in 2018 (.129 BAA) to getting crushed in 2019 (.297 BAA). He'll enter 2020 as the closer for the Mets, and reliever volatility is well-known, so don't be surprised to see Diaz rebound big-time in 2020. But just don't go into your season banking on it.

Seth Lugo Note

Lugo has been a quality reliever for two seasons now, and he found his way into the closer's role late last year. Edwin Diaz should have the ninth-inning role for the Mets to start, but if he struggles again, Lugo could sneak back into the job. Lugo is worth drafting for his ratios alone, but the potential for saves makes him an ideal candidate for a late-round selection.
