St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jordan Hicks announced Monday that he has chosen to opt out of the 2020 MLB season.

Fantasy Impact

Jordan Hicks was fine for the Cardinals last year, pitching 29 games and finishing with a 3.14 ERA. He wasn’t likely to get much run this shortened season as he was behind presumed starting closer Giovanny Gallegos on the depth chart. As Gallegos has yet to report to camp, the unlikely frontrunner for saves in St. Louis right now is Ryan Helsley.
