ESPN Fantasy Projection: Mikolas' follow-up to his successful return from playing overseas was a mixed bag. He continued to be stingy with the walks and kept hitters off balance, but like many, struggled to keep the new baseball in the yard and was a bit more hittable, resulting in an ERA that was out of balance with a solid WHIP. He does not have great stuff, but the combination of his pitches and how he executed them drove his 2018 success. Last season, the slider -- a pitch he throws 25% of the time -- failed him miserably. Batters hit .184 off Mikolas' slider in 2018, swinging and missing 14% of the time. Last season batters hit .287 off the same pitch while swinging and missing only 11% of the time. He needs that pitch to find a happy medium in 2020.
