Top 2020 Fantasy baseball prospects to target

Cohen's projections are high on Athletics starting pitcher Jesus Luzardo as one of the top Fantasy baseball prospects 2020 who should be on your radar. 

Luzardo posted a 1.08 ERA across 8.1 Cactus League innings before the coronavirus pandemic halted baseball. The promising southpaw is projected to serve as Oakland's No. 4 starter in the rotation, which bodes well for owners who draft him. Last season, Luzardo received a small taste of the big leagues and posted remarkable numbers. In fact, Luzardo generated 16 strikeouts and two saves against just two earned runs in six appearances. 

"Luzardo is one of the pitchers that may benefit from a shortened season," Cohen told SportsLine. "Previously, Oakland would likely have limited his workload this season, but now with a shorter 2020 season, Luzardo could last all year long."
