Blue Jays Have Legitimate Interest In Jake Odorizzi

The Toronto Blue Jays met with the representatives for starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi on Tuesday, and they will have legitimate interest in the right-hander if he rejects the $17.8 million qualifying offer from the Twins. Odorizzi was very solid for fantasy owners in 2019, going 15-7 with a 3.51 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 178 strikeouts in 159 innings over his 30 starts for the Twinkies. His 10.1 K/9 was a career high. Moving to hitter-friendly Toronto and the fearsome American League East division would lower his fantasy appeal heading into the 2020 season, though.

Jake Odorizzi Staying With Twins

Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi accepted the team's one-year, $17.8 million qualifying offer on Thursday, according to sources. Barring a contract extension, the right-hander will be a free agent after the 2020 season. Odorizzi had one of his best seasons in the bigs last year, going 15-7 with a 3.51 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and career-high 10.1 K/9 in 159 innings over 30 starts. He'll be a solid middle-of-the-rotation fantasy starter once again in 2020, and staying in the pitcher-friendly confines of Target Field is probably the best thing for his fantasy value for another year.

Twins To Decline Martin Perez's Option

The Minnesota Twins will decline the $7.5 million 2020 option on starting pitcher Martin Perez, making him a free agent. They'll instead pay him a $500,000 buyout. The 28-year-old left-hander finished 10-7 with a 5.12 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 135 strikeouts in 165 1/3 innings over 29 starts and three relief outings for the Twins in 2019. With a well below-average 5.8 career K/9 in eight seasons, Perez is strictly a single-universe streamer in the right matchups. He won't be guaranteed a rotation spot with another team on the open market this winter.

C.J. Cron May Need Surgery

Minnesota Twins first baseman C.J. Cron (thumb), who had been bothered by a bone bruise in his thumb for most of the second half of the season, could need surgery to fix the issue. Cron was put on the injured list twice, and the injured limited his ability at the plate down the stretch. The 29-year-old finished the season hitting .253/.311/.469 with 25 home runs and 78 RBI, but he was much better in the first half before his thumb injury. Cron has some pop and can drive in runs but doesn't do much else for fantasy owners. You can do much worse for a corner infielder in AL-only leagues, though.

Royce Lewis Tearing It Up In AFL

Minnesota Twins prospect Royce Lewis is slashing .375/.426/.688 with three home runs and 18 hits in 12 games for the Salt River Rafters in the Arizona Fall League. He started slow this year in the minors and was slowed by an oblique injury, but he's making up for lost time and showing why he was a highly touted shortstop prospect in the first place. The 20-year-old hit a disappointing .236/.290/.371 with 12 home runs, 49 RBI and 22 stolen bases in 127 games for High-A Fort Myers and Double-A Pensacola this year, but he's an intriguing dynasty stash for his power and speed combination. MLB.com lists him as Minnesota's top prospect and No. 9 in all of baseball.
