Expert NoteView More Notes
Means's 4.53 ERA and grotesque home run rate are probably going to scare the casual fantasy manager away, but there is a ton to like about him heading into 2021. First, Means had a weird year last season, as he dealt with arm fatigue early and then his father passed away, so his schedule was certainly thrown up into the air at the start. Probably because of those difficulties, his outstanding changeup wasn't effective earlier in the season, but it was back to being his money pitch by season's end. Add to that Means' increase in velocity, his strong finish (1.52 ERA, 30 strikeouts over his last four starts), and his excellent command, and there's a breakout waiting to happen, despite the tough division.

John Means ends 2020 on a high note
John Means started Saturday's game against the Blue Jays, giving up one run on a solo homer to Cavan Biggio. He finished the day allowing just that one hit, a walk, and struck out nine over six innings. The Orioles lost, 5-2, dropping Means's record to 2-4.
Means was on his revenge tour in September, allowing one run in every start since September 2nd. He finishes 2020 with a 4.53 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and 42 strikeouts in 43 and 2/3 innings. He will likely be drafted around the same spot that he was last year.
