Fantasy Baseball Player Notes

2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Jose Berrios Note

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.

Kenta Maeda Note

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.

Michael Pineda Note

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.
