2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Corey Kluber Note

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.

Lance Lynn Note

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.

Jose Leclerc Note

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.
