2021 Fantasy Outlook
Clase had quite a bit of hype last offseason for a reliever with just 21 games and one save to his name. Those who hoped to see him surpass Brad Hand as closer wound up rather disappointed, as he tested positive for Boldenone, a performance-enhancing drug, leading to a year-long suspension. It was already shaping up to be a rocky season for the young righty, as a strained lat in late February would have seen him miss the first few months of the season under ordinary circumstances. We're now left with a player who has plenty of potential but who hasn't pitched in over a year and has recently battled an arm injury. That's a risky proposition, but the upside is still there and Hand is now out the door, opening up save chances. That keeps Clase firmly in lottery-ticket territory, though his 22.3 K% as a rookie and 23.7 K% in the minors mean he may not provide much value if he doesn't get saves. Read Past Outlooks

Clase (suspension) was reinstated from the restricted list Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Clase was handed an 80-game suspension in May after testing positive for the PED Boldenone. The suspension was revised to cover the entirety of the 60-game season, and he'll be available for spring training and the 2021 season after serving the ban. The 22-year-old figures to slot into a fairly high-leverage role with Cleveland next season after recording one save and four holds while posting a 2.31 ERA and 1.11 WHIP over 23.1 innings with the Rangers in 2019.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Clase emerged early last season as one of the best relief-pitching prospects in baseball and got the call in August at the age of 21. He led the majors by a sizable margin in average cutter velocity at 99.2 mph. The 6-foot-2 righty also throws a high-spin, 99.5-mph four-seamer and a 90.5-mph slider, though he leaned on his 80-grade cutter 73.3% of the time. His 22.3 K% was underwhelming, given his stuff, but his 6.4 BB%, 60.6 GB% and 1.11 WHIP were very impressive marks for a high-velocity 21-year-old reliever. Clase has ninth-inning stuff -- he gave up just three homers in 68 innings last year -- so it's likely just a matter of when he gets the chance to move from setup man to closer. Clase headlined the December trade for Corey Kluber and his path to saves is a little more difficult in Cleveland, but the cream usually rises to the top in these situations.
