43 Cole Hamels (ATL - SP) 130 153.0 +23.0
 
44 Ross Stripling (LAD - SP,RP) 139 171.0 +32.0
When the Dodgers traded Stripling, he soared up draft boards but now that the deal was canceled, he may very well return to the bullpen. We've seen this before though, and he is likely to end up with 100+ great innings regardless. With his pricetag being what it is, fantasy owners are getting a downright steal because of the lofty upside.

75 Vince Velasquez (PHI - SP,RP) 255 250.0 -5.0
 
76 Matt Strahm (SD - SP,RP) 205 334.0 +129.0
 
77 Michael Wacha (NYM - SP,RP) 264 206.0 -58.0
 
78 Alex Reyes (STL - SP,RP) MiLB 219 218.0 -1.0
With Miles Mikolas now dealing with a forearm injury, it seems likely that he will miss some time or even be shut down. That leaves the final spot up for grabs between Kwang-Hyun Kim, Reyes, and Daniel Ponce de Leon. Among them, Kim is considered the frontrunner, but Reyes is far and away the most talented. In fact, he has been receiving rave reviews from the coaching staff already and they've said all winter that they'd love to have him in the rotation if he was healthy and his velocity was back to where it should be. If Reyes wins this job, he could be the breakout ace of the year for fantasy teams.
