As the MLB offseason slowly continues to unfold, creeping ever closer to that blissful day in mid-February when pitchers and catchers first report to spring training, we are starting to get a clearer picture of just how each MLB team’s starting rotation is shaping up.
For some, rotations have clearly been enhanced by shrewd acquisitions over the past few months; for others, salary dumps and rebuilding modes have weakened the starting corps. And for at least one team, the shipping off of pitchers has led to accusations of bullying MLB into a decision.
Judging from what we’ve seen thus far, have the rich gotten richer? Is there still time for teams to upgrade their rotations?
There are still some intriguing options left on the free-agent market for teams to do just that, including Roy Oswalt, Edwin Jackson, Hiroki Kuroda and Javier Vazquez.
For now, we’ll take a look at the current state of rotations across MLB and give our best guess as to where they currently stand.
