Yu Darvish Or Kyle Hendricks Will Start Opening Day

Chicago Cubs manager David Ross said that the Opening Day start will come down to starting pitchers Yu Darvish and Kyle Hendricks. That will come on the road on Thursday, March 26, against the Brewers. Darvish is more of a volatile fantasy selection because of his injury history, but he also offers more strikeout upside than Hendricks and is going at an ADP of 68 compared to that of 142 for Hendricks. The Japanese right-hander finished the 2019 season on a really high note, giving those who draft him some optimism that he can bring that into 2020. Hendricks had a very decent 3.46 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 150 K's in 177 innings across 30 starts last season.

Yu Darvish Scratched With Illness

Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Yu Darvish (illness) was scratched from his Grapefruit League start on Thursday because he's dealing with a cold. It was initially reported that he was dealing with the flu, but tests proved otherwise. Second baseman Jason Kipnis is also taking the day off due to illness. Darvish, the expected Opening Day starter, should be just fine moving forward as long as he's not sidelined for too long. The Japanese right-hander has made one spring outing covering two innings, but he was hitting 98 mph with his fastball and he struck out three hitters. After a strong second half in Chicago in 2019, Darvish could be a value pick at his current ADP.
