    Montas 80-game suspension for PEDs

    Ouch.

    What do people think of him long term? Has he been so great this year cuz of PEDs? A fellow contender has him at $1 and I suspect he will flip him for a top end rental. I'll be trying to sell my Luzardo to the same sellers and I'm wondering if I can legitimately claim to have the better As arm long term to sellers.

    And to add insult to non-injury, he will have to take up a valuable bench spot for the rest of the season in most keeper leagues.

    While all pitchers have a serious risk for injury, if Montas fails another test it is a full season suspension for a 2nd violation I believe. I rarely ever keep a pitcher in a keeper that needs TJ...to throw another huge risk like a potential 2nd failed test is the angle I'd use if trying to make your claim.

    I have no idea why you'd want to flip Luzardo now that he's on the way back up...he's seeming healthy and dominant again, and going for a few rehab starts in AAA ball.

    This guy has the potential to be a top 10 pitcher in a short period of time...there will be the usual stumbles along the way, but sooner, rather than later, you'll have a stud pitcher in your rotation.

    Unless the move can win you the title, I wouldn't consider moving Luzardo.

    I like Luzardo a lot, but he has an injury history in his short career, and potential is just that. I have moved better prospects than him to win. Rest assured that I wouldn't give him away, but he is sure to fetch one or more significant upgrade for me, and the Montas owner is the guy who came in 2nd to me the last two years. I want to make it 3 in a row .

    So what do folks expect from Montas in 2020?

    Seth Trachtman's blurb from the player profile in "The Fantasy Baseball Guide" summed it up for me, "His new splitter had nothing to do with PEDs. This is really an ace."
