Luzardo had an impressive spring training and recorded eight strikeouts over 3.1 innings in his final Cactus League start before the preseason ended prematurely. He showed the ability to mix up his pitches, which kept hitters off-balance in the box. In 2019, Luzardo made brief big-league stint and showed he has what it takes to be a starter in Oakland's rotation in 2020. In fact, Luzardo posted a 1.50 ERA and 0.87 WHIP across six appearances last season.

"Luzardo sports three plus-pitches, including a mid-90s fastball," Cohen told SportsLine. "In addition, he has excellent command. He profiles as a future ace, and in his 2019 call-up, he looked quite stellar. Luzardo is a player to invest in."
