Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Gerrit Cole Note
Gerrit Cole photo 1. Gerrit Cole NYY
There are really no words for what Cole was able to do last year. He built on the massive gains he made from his first year with the Astros and lowered his ERA, WHIP, and walk rate to miniscule levels while totaling an outrageous 326 strikeouts. He'll move to the Yankees now, which is a mild downgrade given that the Yankees may slightly limit his innings in light of their long-term investment in Cole and their bullpen, and the opposing offenses and ballparks in the AL East compared to the AL West. But Cole's fastball and slider are beyond elite, and he should be the top pitcher taken in fantasy drafts.

Jacob deGrom Note
Jacob deGrom photo 2. Jacob deGrom NYM
After winning his second consecutive Cy Young Award, deGrom has an obvious case to be the top pitcher taken in the game. Back-to-back season with a sub-2.50 ERA and sub-1.00 WHIP with at least 200 strikeouts makes deGrom perhaps the safest pitcher in the game, especially after three straight seasons of at least 200 innings pitched. The bugaboo for deGrom is his lack of wins - just 21 over the last two seasons despite historic numbers. But with the improved Mets bullpen, there's every reason to think deGrom can get back to the 15-win total he put up in 2017. It's him or Gerrit Cole for the top pitcher off the board and you can't go wrong.

Max Scherzer Note
Max Scherzer photo 3. Max Scherzer WSH
Scherzer struggled a bit through the first month of the season, but went on a patented run in May and June that made him look like the Scherzer of old. Unfortunately, a back injury largely derailed his second half, as he was limited to just over 20 innings over July and August. Scherzer is entering his age-36 season and is a max effort pitcher, so the fact that we finally saw a bit of a breakdown (Scherzer has reached at least 200 innings in his six previous seasons) is concerning. But his numbers are still elite and he should be taken as one of the first pitchers off the board despite the back scare.

Justin Verlander Note
Justin Verlander photo 4. Justin Verlander HOU
Verlander had groin surgery which will sideline him for several weeks. But given the postponement of the season, it seems unlikely to threaten Verlander's availability for Opening Day, whenever that may be. Although surgery is never a good sign, in the end, it's better for Verlander that he could get this out of the way now rather than have it linger. For now, keep him high on your draft boards.

Walker Buehler Note
Walker Buehler photo 5. Walker Buehler LAD
A 5.22 ERA in April scared fantasy owners, but Buehler quickly recovered from the Dodgers' ill-planned "ease into the year" plan. He looked precisely like the pitcher his fantasy owners had hoped for after that, ending the year with a 3.26 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with a 29.2% strikeout rate. His meager five percent walk rate was one of the best in the league, and with an incredibly strong offense behind him once again, Buehler should excel in all four of the starting pitching categories in 2020. Have no concerns.
27 weeks ago
Stephen Strasburg Note
Stephen Strasburg photo 6. Stephen Strasburg WSH
Strasburg reached the 200-inning plateau for the second time in his career, and set a career high in wins with 18. Other than staying completely healthy, however, his numbers looked pretty much as they always have - just below the truly elite pitchers, but worthy of coming from your ace. Don't be sucked in by his magical postseason (1.98 ERA, 0.94 WHIP). Draft Strasburg as a top-10 pitcher, but expect his usual low-3.00 ERA and solid all around numbers.
27 weeks ago
Shane Bieber Note
Shane Bieber photo 7. Shane Bieber CLE
Bieber was simply fantastic in 2019 and gave you everything you want from a stud pitcher. He was second in the league innings, had a 3.28 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP, and was top-10 in strikeout and walk rates. He gave up his fair share of home runs but, overall, there are next to no complaint about Bieber. Draft him with confidence as a low-end ace.
27 weeks ago
Jack Flaherty Note
Jack Flaherty photo 8. Jack Flaherty STL
If ever there were a tale of two halves, it was Flaherty's 2019 season. A 4.64 ERA with a 1.23 WHIP in the first half, followed by a preposterous 0.91 ERA and 0.71 WHIP in the second half. His strikeout rate jumped, his walk rate dropped, and he saw a gain of almost a mile per hour on his fastball. The real Flaherty likely lies somewhere in between his first and second halves, but that should be a top-10 pitcher in 2020.
27 weeks ago
Mike Clevinger Note
Mike Clevinger photo 9. Mike Clevinger SD
Clevinger sustained a partial medial meniscus tear in his left knee on February 14th and underwent surgery. Although his 6-8 week timetable made it highly unlikely that he'd be back for Opening Day, the postponement of the season means that Clevinger should be ready to go when the bell rings. That should make him a top-12 pitcher at worst.
27 weeks ago
Clayton Kershaw Note
Clayton Kershaw photo 10. Clayton Kershaw LAD
Peak Kershaw may be gone, but the version that remains is pretty darn good himself. Kershaw passed 175 innings pitched for the first time since 2015 despite starting the season on the IL, and although his ERA crept above 3.00 for the first time since 2008, his overall numbers remain elite. With strong win potential always present, Kershaw is a fine second starter on your staff. But his days of carrying a fantasy team are behind him.
27 weeks ago
Blake Snell Note
Blake Snell photo 11. Blake Snell TB
Snell's subpar season was limited to just 107 innings after he underwent arthroscopic elbow surgery. Although owners might want to shy away after last year, there were plenty of encouraging signs. His FIP and xFIP were roughly a run lower than his ERA, his 33.3% strikeout rate was actually an improvement on his breakout year, and batters continued to make incredibly weak contact. If healthy, he should return to dominance.
27 weeks ago
Charlie Morton Note
Charlie Morton photo 12. Charlie Morton ATL
Morton only got better after leaving the Astros, setting career bests in innings pitched, ERA, WHIP, and strikeout percentage. Batters simply don't hit his curveball, which he throws more than a third of the time, and his fastball is nearly equally as effective. In a dynasty or keeper format, things may be different, as Morton speaks of retirement often. For this year, however, there is zero reason for concern.
27 weeks ago
Luis Castillo Note
Luis Castillo photo 13. Luis Castillo CIN
Regression just never really hit for Castillo last year, despite a walk rate of 10.1%, fourth-worst in the league among qualified pitchers. There's no doubting Castillo's stuff, particularly his devastating changeup, and the Reds should be more competitive than they have been in years. But he simply has to cut down on the free passes if he wants to build on his breakout 2019. There's every reason to think he will as he continue to grow as a pitcher, and should make a reliable second fantasy starter.
27 weeks ago
Patrick Corbin Note
Patrick Corbin photo 14. Patrick Corbin WSH
Corbin largely followed up on his breakout 2018 season with the Nationals last year, again reaching the 200-inning plateau and pitching to a low-3.00 ERA. He continued to lean heavily on his outstanding slider, against which batters hit just .158. His walk rate and strikeout rate rose and fell just a tad from his peak, a trend that fantasy owners can expect to continue. But Corbin's baseline is excellent and even with further slow decline in skills, he should be an outstanding starter for a fantasy rotation.
27 weeks ago
Lucas Giolito Note
Lucas Giolito photo 15. Lucas Giolito CWS
Giolito earned every bit of his breakout season, putting up an ERA that we nearly identical to his FIP and xFIP and a major gain in control. Most impressive for Giolito was his ability to limit contact on pitches in the strike zone - just 77.3%, second best in MLB behind Gerrit Cole. His raw stuff is elite, and another fantastic season should follow in 2020.
27 weeks ago
Chris Paddack Note
Chris Paddack photo 16. Chris Paddack SD
Paddack earned his "biggest spring training breakout" award with an outstanding season, albeit one capped with an innings limit. The reins should be taken off a bit this year, which should allow Paddack to remain in a groove and build on his outstanding 2019 numbers. His fastball and changeup are simpy elite, and if he can continue to refine his curveball, he could develop into a true fantasy ace.
27 weeks ago
Zack Greinke Note
Zack Greinke photo 17. Zack Greinke HOU
Greinke didn't see the patented Astros bump after a mid-season trade, as his overall numbers actually declined a bit after his move from the Diamondbacks. His ERA and WHIP remain outstanding, but his strikeout rate continues to decline, such that it now actively does not help fantasy owners. Still, he's nearly a lock for 200 innings, plenty of wins, and solid peripherals, making him a fine addition to any fantasy staff. But with his advancing age, don't bank on him necessarily being a top-20 pitcher.
27 weeks ago
Yu Darvish Note
Yu Darvish photo 18. Yu Darvish CHC
Darvish's season was a tale of two halves. He was utterly unplayable to begin the season, tallying a 1.56 WHIP through May and walking roughly six batters per nine innings. But Darvish pulled out of it and then some, walking only seven batters over his final 14 starts, during which he had a 2.95 ERA and 0.83 WHIP. Can you fully trust Darvish? Probably not? But should you expect him to pitch closer to his second half than his first? For sure.
27 weeks ago
Aaron Nola Note
Aaron Nola photo 19. Aaron Nola PHI
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.
27 weeks ago
Tyler Glasnow Note
Tyler Glasnow photo 20. Tyler Glasnow TB
Glasnow was limited to just 60 innings in 2019, but they were pretty glorious ones! His control, which had plagued him since coming to the majors, improved significantly, and his WHIP dropped to an impressive 0.89. He should be fully recovered from his forearm injury heading into the season and has the raw stuff to be a fantasy ace if he can avoid injury. There's risk with Glasnow, but it is worth taking.
27 weeks ago
Jose Berrios Note
Jose Berrios photo 21. Jose Berrios MIN
Berrios reached 200 innings but didn't really take the step forward that most fantasy owners had hoped for. His strikeout rate dropped, his WHIP increased, and batters made better contact. Still, Berrios was a pitcher who fantasy owners could start each and every time out, contributed well in wins, and rarely walked batters. When you add it all up, Berrios remains a starter that fantasy owners should covet, but perhaps temper expectations until he shows that he's ready to take that next step.
27 weeks ago
Trevor Bauer Note
Trevor Bauer photo 22. Trevor Bauer FA
Bauer may be one of the most talented pitchers in baseball, but he has exactly one season with an ERA below 4.18, a WHIP below 1.25, or more than 12 wins. Even on an improved Cincinnati team, there's little reason to expect him to do much better than those numbers. Bauer will give you innings and plenty of strikeouts, but fantasy owners would do well to largely forget 2018, and draft him with closer to a 4.00 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in mind.
27 weeks ago
Corey Kluber Note
Corey Kluber photo 23. Corey Kluber FA
Kluber showed some skills decline in 2018, but nothing could have prepared fantasy owners for the disaster that was 2019. He got off to a terrible start before a broken forearm ended his season. Now with the Rangers, Kluber will get a fresh start and look to rebuild some of his real and fantasy value. Throw out the 5.80 ERA and 1.65 WHIP from last year - Kluber hasn't declined to that extent. Expect him to provide very solid, albeit not pristine, numbers, if he can stay healthy.
27 weeks ago
Sonny Gray Note
Sonny Gray photo 24. Sonny Gray CIN
Gray talked about how he didn't like how the Yankees had forced him to use his slider and that he expected better results in 2019. Boy, did he get them with the Reds. His slider and curveball went from very good to great in 2019, and along with it improved all of his numbers. Armed now with a top-notch strikeout rate and peripherals that finally match his raw stuff, Gray should be drafted with confidence in 2020 as a reliable fantasy starter.
27 weeks ago
Brandon Woodruff Note
Brandon Woodruff photo 25. Brandon Woodruff MIL
Woodruff earned his breakout 2019, relying on his elite fastball to limit hard contact and avoid big innings. His solid control allows him to keep the line moving, and the Brewers' strong lineup adds to his win potential. Although he missed a large chunk of the season due to injury, he should be ready to lead the Brewers rotation this year, and can and should be drafted as a strong second-tier starter.
27 weeks ago
Lance Lynn Note
Lance Lynn photo 26. Lance Lynn TEX
Lynn was truly phenomenal last season, turning his velocity gains into both an increase in strikeout rate and a massive drop in walk rate. Everything Lynn did in 2019 was backed up by his underlying metrics, so there's plenty of reason for optimism in 2020. But it's fair to consider how out of character Lynn's year was, an add just a wee bit of caution to your projections.
27 weeks ago
Mike Soroka Note
Mike Soroka photo 27. Mike Soroka ATL
Soroka wasn't even necessarily supposed to begin 2019 in the Braves rotation but quickly developed into an ace. Although there's little reason to knock his year, his 7.32/9 strikeout rate ranked 49th out of 61 qualified starters. With an xFIP more than a run higher than his 2.68 ERA, there's every reason to expect regression. Still, there's room Soroka to continue to be an excellent fantasy option despite a step back, so don't avoid him during your draft.
27 weeks ago
Carlos Carrasco Note
Carlos Carrasco photo 28. Carlos Carrasco CLE
Carrasco was already dealing with plenty of question marks after losing much of last season to leukemia, and now has been diagnosed with a mild hip flexor. He's day-to-day but it's obviously not the start to the spring that Carrasco owners were hoping for. Continue to monitor his progress but he avoids setbacks, he represents a fairly steep bargain in fantasy drafts, given his past performance and the fact that last year can largely be written off to his illness.
27 weeks ago
Frankie Montas Note
Frankie Montas photo 29. Frankie Montas OAK
Montas was one of the best starters in baseball until his season ended prematurely thanks to a PED suspension. Before then, he had used added velocity and improved control to lower is ERA to 2.63 and tally nine wins in just 16 starts. There's always a question of how a player coming off a PED suspension will perform the following year but, for the most part, they are often able to maintain much of their performance. Draft Montas expecting solid overall numbers, though expect an ERA in the 3.00s, rather than the 2.00s.
27 weeks ago
Zack Wheeler Note
Zack Wheeler photo 30. Zack Wheeler PHI
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.
27 weeks ago
Hyun Jin Ryu Note
Hyun Jin Ryu photo 31. Hyun Jin Ryu TOR
When healthy, Ryu has quietly been one of the best pitchers in baseball since his 2013 debut. But his preposterous year last season was surprising even for him. Ryu had the lowest BABIP-allowed on groundballs (just .162) of any pitcher in baseball in 2019, which led to just a 1.01 WHIP. Now in Toronto, that number is sure to rise precipitously and obviously have a negative impact on Ryu's 2020 numbers. That impact has been baked into Ryu's ADP at this point, so you won't have to buy him at his 2019 numbers. Just be prepared for regression.
27 weeks ago
Zac Gallen Note
Zac Gallen photo 32. Zac Gallen ARI
Gallen was so absurdly dominant in Triple-A in 2019 that his MLB performance, while highly impressive, felt slightly disappointing. But his fastball, curveball, and changeup were all plus pitches in the majors, and there's every reason to expect him to continue to grow as a pitcher. There's somehow some question mark around his rotation spot, but cream usually rises to the top, and he should not only be one of the Diamondbacks' five starters, but he should excel. Expect excellent overall numbers and draft him accordingly.
27 weeks ago
Kyle Hendricks Note
Kyle Hendricks photo 33. Kyle Hendricks CHC
Hendricks can be dominant at times, but his lack of overpowering raw stuff means he has to be pinpoint with his control. When he's on, he can be unhittable, like when he led the league in getting hitters to swing at pitches outside the zone in the second half last year. But in the end, you know what Hendricks is going to give you. A sub-3.50 ERA, a sub-1.20 WHIP, and mediocre strikeout numbers. There's plenty of room for that on a fantasy team. But don't bank on much upside.
27 weeks ago
Madison Bumgarner Note
Madison Bumgarner photo 34. Madison Bumgarner ARI
Bumgarner's ERA approached 4.00 last year, but he stayed healthy all year and saw a velocity bump after two injury-plagued years. The move to Arizona is a downgrade considering the park change, but it's not quite as drastic as it would have been without the humidor. Still, Bumgarner's numbers were significantly worse away from Oracle Park last year (2.93 ERA at home, 5.29 away), so it's fair to exercise caution with Bumgarner. But, so long as you recognize him for what he is at this point in his career, he'll likely give you what you expect.
27 weeks ago
James Paxton Note
James Paxton photo 35. James Paxton FA
Paxton will be out until at least early May (and likely longer) after undergoing a microscopic lumbar discectomy with removal of a peridiscal cyst in early February. Although his talent is undeniable, this is yet another in a long list of injuries for Paxton, who has eight injured list stints since the beginning of the 2014 season. While early May is the front end of the three to four month timetable, expect Paxton's absence to last until at least June and possibly longer if he has any setbacks.
27 weeks ago
Max Fried Note
Max Fried photo 36. Max Fried ATL
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.
27 weeks ago
Dinelson Lamet Note
Dinelson Lamet photo 37. Dinelson Lamet SD
Lamet is a popular breakout candidate this year, after he returned from Tommy John surgery to throw 73 innings of solid baseball last year. Lamet is still much more potential than numbers - he hasn't dominated a level above A-ball and has questionable control. But his raw stuff, particularly his slider and curveball, are impressive, and he can miss bats with the best of them. They'll be no discount for Lamet this year, but if you're looking for upside, he's worth the gamble.
27 weeks ago
Eduardo Rodriguez Note
Eduardo Rodriguez photo 38. Eduardo Rodriguez BOS
Rodriguez has tested positive for COVID-19, and Ron Roenicke has admitted that it's unlikely the Red Sox will have him ready for Opening Day. He's reportedly asymptomatic, however, which hopefully means he'll be able to have two positive tests and return to the team sometime after the first few days.
20 weeks ago
Kenta Maeda Note
Kenta Maeda photo 39. Kenta Maeda MIN
Maeda should be the rare pitcher who benefits from a move to the American League. The Dodgers have moved him back and forth from the bullpen to the starting rotation to manipulate his innings and avoid paying him bonuses for years. Now, he should stick in the Twins' rotation, and approach the 175 innings he threw in 2016. Given that he had the highest swinging strike rate (14.6%) and chase rate (34.8%) of his career last year and will be moving to a division that saw three of the other four teams rank in the bottom seven in runs scored in 2019, consider the needle on Maeda moving up.
27 weeks ago
Matthew Boyd Note
Matthew Boyd photo 40. Matthew Boyd DET
Armed with a devastating slider into which he leaned heavily, Boyd had an impressive opening to his season, putting up gaudy strikeout numbers with impressive overall stats. Unfortunately, his ERA rose from 3.87 in the first half to 5.51 in the second half, with his WHIP coming along for the ride. An awful .318 BABIP on groundballs didn't help, but that number isn't all that surprising given the defense behind him. With almost no win potential, Boyd is more of a back-end-of-the-rotation fantasy starter.
27 weeks ago
Shohei Ohtani Note
Shohei Ohtani photo 41. Shohei Ohtani LAA
Ohtani didn't pitch at all in 2019 and likely won't do so until mid-May in 2020. But his bat looked just fine last year, proving that his 2018 skills he showed as a hitter were not a fluke. He'll likely settle back into a part-time DH role with the Angels, and if you can choose to deploy him as both a pitcher and a hitter in any given week, Ohtani should provide immense value as a fantasy player. Even if not, he should contribute on either end of the spectrum, so draft him with a high degree of confidence.
27 weeks ago
Julio Urias Note
Julio Urias photo 42. Julio Urias LAD
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.
27 weeks ago
Robbie Ray Note
Robbie Ray photo 43. Robbie Ray TOR
While the overall numbers fluctuate, Ray is largely the same guy he's always been. He's going to amass a ton of strikeouts and he's going to hand out free passes like a doctor handing out lollipops. It is just impossible to rely on a starter who can't top 175 innings or keep his WHIP below 1.33. Ray is certainly rosterable but close your eyes when he's pitching.
27 weeks ago
Jesus Luzardo Note
Jesus Luzardo photo 44. Jesus Luzardo OAK
Luzardo has tested positive for COVID-19, though there have been few details as to his reported symptoms (or lack thereof). A prime breakout candidate, especially given the delay and the lack of an innings limit, Luzardo's fantasy stock is now in a bit of a grey area. Monitor the reports but be prepared to knock him down a few pegs in your draft absent positive reports on his health.
20 weeks ago
Mike Minor Note
Mike Minor photo 45. Mike Minor FA
The Rangers pushed Minor to reach 200 strikeouts and, although his 3.59 ERA shows he surpassed expectations, there was really fairly little to get excited about. Minor's FIP and xFIP were substantially higher than his ERA, his WHIP was mediocre, and his strikeout rate hardly impressed. He's a pitcher you draft to solidify the back end of your rotation, but nothing more.
27 weeks ago
Lance McCullers Jr. Note
Lance McCullers Jr. photo 46. Lance McCullers Jr. HOU
McCullers missed all of 2019 after undergoing Tommy John surgery but he should be ready to go this year. His devastating curveball keeps hitters off balance, and his ability to mix pitches is elite. There's risk from the injury and he may be rusty, but McCullers offers rare upside. He'll likely be on an innings limit this year, but that shouldn't come into play with the postponement of the season.
27 weeks ago
German Marquez Note
German Marquez photo 47. German Marquez COL
Although Marquez seemed like the rare pitcher who could conquer Coors Field, 2019 showed otherwise. Marquez pitched to a 3.67 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP on the road, but a 6.26 ERA and 1.55 WHIP at home. Can he overcome the thin air this year? It's possible, but history is littered with pitchers who managed to buck the trend for one year only to fail to do so again. Marquez has the skill, but his home park make it seem unlikely he can provide quality value.
27 weeks ago
Andrew Heaney Note
Andrew Heaney photo 48. Andrew Heaney LAA
Heaney's 14.2% swinging strike rate was elite last year. But, as usual, he just couldn't put it all together. There's a monster somewhere inside Heaney - a 3.50 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, 200 strikeout season lurks within. But it's still a mystery as to whether fantasy owners will ever see it. Draft him for his potential and hope to see it this year, but don't bank on the production.
27 weeks ago
Jake Odorizzi Note
Jake Odorizzi photo 49. Jake Odorizzi FA
Odorizzi just refused to fail last year, and he was a reliable pitcher all year long. His continued gains in strikeouts and drop in walks, to go along with his 15 wins, led to a remarkably profitable season. But his xFIP remained at 4.33 and Odorizzi just never felt quite like a pitcher who was going to dominate every time out. Fortunately, you don't have to pay for his 2019 numbers given his ADP, so draft him at his price without much worry.
27 weeks ago
Sean Manaea Note
Sean Manaea photo 50. Sean Manaea OAK
After various delays, Manaea made a successful return from shoulder surgery, winning four of his five starts and pitching to a sterling 1.21 ERA and 0.78 WHIP with solid strikeout numbers. The sample is too small to know if Manaea really took a step forward, particularly given his significantly higher FIP and xFIP. But it should give fantasy owners confidence that Manaea can contribute all year long to a fantasy rotation.
27 weeks ago
Joe Musgrove Note
Joe Musgrove photo 51. Joe Musgrove PIT
Musgrove started out the season hot but cratered in May, pitching to an 8.10 ERA in the month. His overall numbers (4.44 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) won't blow you away, but Musgrove saw major velocity gains on his fastball and cutter over the second half of the season. Wins will always be an issue but if he can continue to build on his velocity increases, he could find his way into being a back-end starter for your fantasy team.
27 weeks ago
Luke Weaver Note
Luke Weaver photo 52. Luke Weaver ARI
Weaver was having an excellent 2019 season before forearm tightness essentially ended his season. He opted to rehab it, which immediately places a cloud over his 2020 outlook given the uncertainty that comes along with such an injury. His best case scenario likely includes some sort of innings limit with solid, but perhaps not league-winning numbers. That's a pitcher to take in the mid-teens rounds and hope everything falls in place.
27 weeks ago
Masahiro Tanaka Note
Masahiro Tanaka photo 53. Masahiro Tanaka FA
Tanaka had a bizarre year. On the negative side, his ERA soared to 4.45 and his WHIP and strikeout rate went to a career worst 1.24 and 7.37/9, respectively. Yet he slightly lowered his walk rate from the past two years, cut his HR/FB rate, and got batters to swing at pitches outside the zone more than almost any other pitcher in the second half of the season. At this point in his career, given his home park, there's little optimism that Tanaka can ever develop into the ace he appeared to be during his debut. Draft him as a back-end-of-the-rotation starter in deeper leagues but nothing more.
27 weeks ago
Mike Foltynewicz Note
Mike Foltynewicz photo 54. Mike Foltynewicz FA
Foltynewicz was on nearly everyone's bust list, and his awful return from an injury only confirmed everyone's intuitions. But he really turned it on in the latter half of the season, pitching to a 2.65 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in the second half. No, he might not be the 2018 version of himself this year, but he certainly has more to offer than his overall 2019 numbers.
27 weeks ago
Carlos Martinez Note
Carlos Martinez photo 55. Carlos Martinez STL
Martinez's shoulder weakness pushed him to the bullpen, where he eventually successfully took over for Jordan Hicks as the closer for the Cardinals. His 2020 role remains in flux, as it appears he'll be given an opportunity to win back the starting role he so covets, but his success is far from assured. Martinez should provide value in the rotation or the bullpen, so given that you won't need to spend much draft capital to get him anyway, don't shy away.
27 weeks ago
Caleb Smith Note
Caleb Smith photo 56. Caleb Smith ARI
Smith really fell apart over the second half of the season, as his ERA was almost two runs higher than in his first half. His overall numbers seem pedestrian, but his strikeout rate and improving control offer upside. If he can control his home runs allowed, he should be able to provide enough value to warrant placement on a fantasy staff.
27 weeks ago
Mitch Keller Note
Mitch Keller photo 57. Mitch Keller PIT
Keller's time in the majors last year was . . . sub-optimal, to say the least. Other than his elite strikeout rate, pretty much nothing went right for the youngster in his brief time with the Pirates. But when your FIP is FOUR runs lower than your ERA, chances are pretty good you're due for a rebound. Keller has an excellent fastball with an above-average slider and a decent curveball, more than enough to succeed in getting major league hitters out. If he can manage to limit his awful first innings of games with more consistency, he could provide plenty of value.
27 weeks ago
Joey Lucchesi Note
Joey Lucchesi photo 58. Joey Lucchesi SD
Lucchesi's a fine pitcher, but he really only has two pitches - a fine fastball and an above-average changeup. Although he dabbles with a cutter, it's much more of a show-me pitch, and batters hit .291 last year against it anyway with an xBA of 3.10. It's unlikely he'll make many significant gains, but there's room on your roster for a low-4.00 ERA pitcher with nearly a strikeout per inning. Just make sure it's toward the back end of your rotation.

Jon Gray Note
Jon Gray photo 59. Jon Gray COL
It would be interesting to see what Gray could do on a team other than the Rockies, but at least we pretty much know what he'll do in Colorado. Pitch to around a 4.00-4.50 ERA, have a WHIP in the 1.35 range, and strike out a batter per inning. Forget about the magical growth we keep waiting for. Draft him at this numbers, which work in an NL-only or deeper mixed league.

Marcus Stroman Note
Marcus Stroman photo 60. Marcus Stroman NYM
Stroman had an excellent 2019 season, though he struggled somewhat after his trade to the Mets. The one thing missing, however, finally arrived, as his strikeout rate popped to over one per inning when he got to New York. After spending all offseason strengthening his core and now in a contract year, Stroman should be in a position to provide plenty of value pitching with a full year in the National League.

Ross Stripling Note
Ross Stripling photo 62. Ross Stripling TOR
Stripling may find his usual odd way into the Dodgers' rotation with David Price opting out. It's unclear whether he or Dustin May will grab the final spot, but given how he's performed when given the chance over the past several years, he's worth a shot as a late-round pick.

Dallas Keuchel Note
Dallas Keuchel photo 63. Dallas Keuchel CWS
Keuchel moves from the Braves to the White Sox, which, on the surface, seems like a negative move given the change in league and home park. But, he'll be paired with Yasmani Grandal, one of the best framing catchers in all of baseball, and that's a huge boon to a pitcher like Keuchel who relies on movement and called strikes as much as any pitcher. In addition, other than the Twins, the lineups in the AL Central are hardly imposing. Keuchel is more of a matchup-based starter at this point in his career anyway, and fantasy owners should still be able to pick and choose when to deploy him.

Rich Hill Note
Rich Hill photo 64. Rich Hill FA
Hill is as predictable as they come nowadays. He'll give you outstanding innings with excellent strikeout numbers, but will top out at 135 innings and likely less. He'll likely be sidelined until June with his elbow injury but that may be just in time for the start of the season now. That should move Hill far up your draft boards, from afterthought to late-round sleeper.

Ryan Yarbrough Note
Ryan Yarbrough photo 65. Ryan Yarbrough TB
Yarbrough relied on an opener plenty of times last year, and it helped his win potential, as he tallied 11 despite making just 14 starts. He greatly improved his control last year, leading to just a 1.00 WHIP, but his lack of strikeout upside and mediocre ERA should keep him as an option only in deeper mixed or AL-only leagues.

Anthony DeSclafani Note
Anthony DeSclafani photo 66. Anthony DeSclafani FA
Desclafani quietly had a decent season in 2019, with a 3.89 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP, and more than a strikeout per inning. But his FIP and xFIP suggested he was lucky, and he lacks the upside of other late-round starters. In deeper mixed leagues where your rotation is solid and you just want someone to not hurt you, Desclafani is your guy. Otherwise, go for a higher ceiling.
27 weeks ago
Yonny Chirinos Note
Yonny Chirinos photo 67. Yonny Chirinos TB
Chirinos' strikeout numbers won't help you, but his solid control allows him to limit the damage and keep his ERA and WHIP under control. He'll have a spot in the Rays' rotation once again, and is an unexciting, but fairly reliable option, for deeper and AL-only leagues.

Garrett Richards Note

Steven Matz Note
Steven Matz photo 69. Steven Matz NYM
Matz is what is he is at this point. He'll likely give you around a 4.00 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and short of a strikeout per inning. With the Mets' addition of Rick Porcello and Michael Wacha, Matz's rotation spot could be in jeopardy unless he gets traded. For now, assume he'll get a starting spot, and draft him in NL-only formats.

Jose Leclerc Note
Jose Leclerc photo 70. Jose Leclerc TEX
The Rangers signed Leclerc to be their closer but he just absolutely refused to hold down the job in 2019. Bouts of ineffectiveness were followed by dominant stretches in mop-up duty, which were again followed by failures in the ninth inning. Above everything else, Leclerc has to again get his walks below four per nine innings as he did in 2018. Absent that, even though he'll begin the year as the Rangers' closer, he'll unlikely end it that way.

Miles Mikolas Note
Miles Mikolas photo 71. Miles Mikolas STL
Mikolas took a step back from his stellar 2018 season, adding more than a run onto his ERA and 0.15 onto his WHIP. With an extremely low strikeout rate, his numbers (4.16 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) don't warrant a roster spot. Add to that his forearm injury that will likely sideline him into May, and Mikolas can be off the fantasy radar.

Jose Urquidy photo 73. Jose Urquidy HOU
Urquidy seemingly has the fourth starter's role locked down, and he offers and intriguing pitch mix, with an above-average fastball and changeup, with a decent slider.It's unlikely that the soon to be 25-year-old will develop into a consistent fantasy starter given his inconsistency, but he certainly has enough upside, as he showed in the playoffs, to warrant rostering in all fantasy leagues.

Sandy Alcantara Note
Sandy Alcantara photo 74. Sandy Alcantara MIA
Alcantara is a weird case. He went on a massive run late in the season in 2019, relying on his outstanding sinker to dominate hitters. His secondary stuff seems good enough to succeed, and yet the Marlins do not seem particularly high on him. He's dealing wth a rough spring, and even at his best, he's never had a season with a WHIP under 1.32. There's upside, but don't necessarily bank on it.
27 weeks ago
Alex Wood Note
Alex Wood photo 75. Alex Wood FA
Wood will be in the Dodgers' rotation to start the year, and there's some reason for optimism. After an offseason spent with Driveline Baseball, Wood saw a velocity bump in the spring, and that usually portends better things for the veteran throughout his career. Don't go crazy with Wood, but he's fine as a late-round pick with upside.

Ian Kennedy Note
Ian Kennedy photo 76. Ian Kennedy FA
Kennedy was an afterthought on draft day last year, but a run of save chances in the middle of the summer boosted him to 30 saves. His peripherals didn't hurt fantasy owners and his strikeout numbers were solid, making Kennedy the poster child for the "wait on saves" crowd. In the final year of his deal, he'll again open as the closer for the Royals, but his chances of being dealt mid-season are extremely high. Draft him, of course, but don't bank on much more than 15 saves or so.
27 weeks ago
Dustin May Note
Dustin May photo 77. Dustin May LAD
May has solid raw stuff and did well in a 34-inning cameo with the Dodgers last year. With David Price opting out of the season, May has a chance to slide into the fifth spot in the rotation and contribute. He's a late-round pick with upside.
20 weeks ago
Brendan McKay Note
Brendan McKay photo 78. Brendan McKay TB
McKay had a dominant, albeit brief, minor-league career, but struggled somewhat in his brief time in the majors last year. His solid control and excellent strikeout rate suggests he could eventually do big things in the majors, but considering he's battling a shoulder injury in the spring that stems from last year, he's highly unlikely to make the Rays' rotation out of camp. He's rosterable only in deeper and AL-only leagues.

Griffin Canning Note
Griffin Canning photo 80. Griffin Canning LAA
Canning has UCL damage, and although Tommy John surgery isn't currently on the table, it certainly seems like a possibility. Despite his upside, with the developments, Canning shouldn't be drafted in fantasy leagues until one of the very last picks, if at all.
27 weeks ago
Jose Quintana Note
Jose Quintana photo 81. Jose Quintana FA
Quintana went from a solid, low-3.00 ERA pitcher with the White Sox to an unreliable pitcher with over a 4.00 ERA in his time with the Cubs. His strikeout rate continues to trend down, and despite pitching at least 171 innings in each of the past seven seasons, he's never won more than 13 games. A low-upside, low-floor play, Quintana is just NL-only material.
27 weeks ago
Cole Hamels Note
Cole Hamels photo 82. Cole Hamels FA
Hamels kept up his strikeout rate last year with the cubs, but his control waned, and he had the worst walk rate of his career. He's dealing with a shoulder injury in the spring and there's currently no timetable for his return. Add it all up and Hamels is only barely worth drafting until or unless we get some positive news.
27 weeks ago
Pablo Lopez Note
Pablo Lopez photo 83. Pablo Lopez MIA
Lopez pitched better than his 5.09 ERA from last year suggests, and he limits free passes well. But his middling strikeout rate and lack of dominant stuff caps his upside. As a late-round pitcher without a high ceiling, fantasy owners are probably better off looking elsewhere to fill out their pitching staffs.
27 weeks ago
Adrian Houser Note
Adrian Houser photo 84. Adrian Houser MIL
Houser has an elite fastball, which he relies on heavily and against which batters hit just .203 last season. Whether he can continue to succeed with just one very good pitch is an open question, but considering his FIP and xFIP fully supported his 3.72 ERA, it's entirely possible. Overall, Houser should provide strikeouts without hurting you elsewhere, so he's an ideal late-round add.

Aaron Civale Note
Aaron Civale photo 88. Aaron Civale CLE
Civale's stuff isn't particularly impressive, but he has a good minor league track record and had an impressive 10-start audition last year. He won't wow you with strikeouts, and his ERA is likely to be a run and a half higher than his 2.34 mark from 2019, but he should provide innings that help in AL-only leagues.
27 weeks ago
Rick Porcello Note
Rick Porcello photo 89. Rick Porcello FA
Porcello's move to the National League makes him somewhat intriguing. His middling strikeout rate (17.4% career) will likely take a jump, and his overall numbers should improve with a move out of the AL East. Even with improvement, however, there's a long way to go before Porcello is contributing to a fantasy team. His biggest asset - his ability to consistently throw innings - will be far less useful with the postponement of Opening Day. He's a late-round filler for a deep pitching staff but little more.
27 weeks ago
Jeff Samardzija Note
Jeff Samardzija photo 90. Jeff Samardzija FA
Samardzija had an impressive 3.52 ERA and 1.11 WHIP last year, but that's where the good news ended. His strikeout rate is at the point where it actively hurts fantasy owners, and his win potential is capped by pitching for the Giants. There are better pitchers to consider late in your draft.

Johnny Cueto Note
Johnny Cueto photo 91. Johnny Cueto SF
Cueto will get the Opening Day nod for the Giants, but he'll hardly be someone to target in fantasy. Putting aside the almost certin win problems he'll have in San Francisco, it's doubtful that the 34-year-old can contribute meaningfully elsewhere at this stage of his career. His career strikeout rate of 7.54/9 is a detriment in today's game, and at his advanced age, after pitching just 69 innings combined over the last two season, there's little reason to expect a return to peak form.

Lopez's overall numbers are abysmal, and he earned them, to be sure. For one glorious month in July, however, Lopez showed his potential, pitchng to a 3.41 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP with a 4.25 K/BB ratio. Unfortunately, his success was short-lived, and he's shown nothing to suggest he's on the verge of figuring things out. In 15-team leagues, fantasy owners can take a shot for a bench role. But otherwise, move on.

Pineda will miss the first 39 games of the 2020 season as he finishes serving his PED suspension. When he does pitch, he'll offer roughly a 4.00 ERA, a decent WHIP, and slightly below average strikeout numbers. On a good Minnesota team, wins may be his best attribute, but he's hardly a pitcher to target in fantasy.

Harvey quietly dominated in his cup of coffee last year, hitting triple digits with his fastball and striking out batters with ease. Now, Brandon Hyde has all but said he'd like him to be in the closer's role, after starting out the spring strong. The Orioles will never provide a ton of save chances and, at this point, it's too early to know if Harvey will be the closer. But, he's certainly worth drafting for the potential at the end of your drafts.
