ESPN Fantasy Projection: An elbow issue limited Yates to six, injury-influenced appearances and ultimately led to mid-August season ending surgery to remove bone chips, but the former Padres closer is expected to be fully recovered for 2021. He signed on as the Blue Jays' probable new finisher -- his health more at the crux of that question than their internal competition -- and with some luck, the right-hander could quickly recapture his form as one of the position's best in fantasy. Strengthening his case: Yates' 1.30 FIP in 2019 was fourth-best in history (minimum 60 innings) and he had a 36.2 K-BB%, 10th-best all-time, as his splitter-dominant repertoire leads to many swings and misses. If he looks healthy come March, he'll be one of the better save-hunting bargains you'll find.
