The 2013 New York Yankees starting pitching will look to build off the success they had throughout most of last season.
The Yankees were so confident in their rotation last season that their main focus this offseason was resigning two starters, Hiroki Kuroda and Andy Pettitte, for another season regardless of their advanced age.
The overall starters ERA last season was 4.05. With a full year of Pettitte and a healthy CC Sabathia, there is no reason that this season's number can't improve.
With an offense that is dealing with a few holes and a lot of question marks, the Yankees will have to rely heavily on their pitching this season.
With that said the expectations will be set high for several of the pitchers taking the mound in the Bronx this summer.
