30. Pittsburgh Pirates
Rotation: Paul Maholm, Sean Gallagher, Chan Ho Park, Chris Resop, Scott Olsen
The Pirates pitching rotation is by far the worst in the league.
29. Baltimore Orioles
Rotation: Jeremy Guthrie, Brian Matusz, Rick VandenHurk, Chris Tillman, Jake Arrieta
The Baltimore Orioles have a young and relatively inexperienced pitching rotation.
28. Cleveland Indians
Rotation: Fausto Carmona, Justin Masterson, Jeanmar Gomez, Carlos Carrasco, Josh Tomlin
The Cleveland Indians are in bad shape. If their starting pitching was anywhere as good as their relief pitching, they'd be in better shape.
27. Milwaukee Brewers
Rotation: Randy Wolf, Yovanni Gallardo, Chris Narveson, Chris Capuano
They have the offense, but certainly not the pitching to compete.
26. Arizona Diamondbacks
Rotation: Ian Kennedy, Joe Saunders, Daniel Hudson, Barry Enright, Zach Duke
The Arizona Diamondbacks have solid contributors from front to back, but no true ace.
25. Kansas City Royals
Rotation: Zack Greinke, Kyle Davies, Sean O'Sullivan, Vin Mazzaro
The Royals have Zack Greinke and that's about it. With all the trade rumors surrounding Greinke, he may not even be in their rotation on opening day, making them arguably the worst.
24. Seattle Mariners
Rotation: Felix Hernandez, Jason Vargas, Doug Fister, Chris Seddon, Luke French
The Seattle Mariners are really top heavy in their pitching rotation with Felix Hernandez, and that's mostly it.
23. Minnesota Twins
Rotation: Scott Baker, Francisco Liriano, Kevin Slowey, Nick Blackburn, Brian Duesing
The Twins really need a true ace to balance their rotation.
22. Washington Nationals
Rotation: Stephen Strasburg, Livan Hernandez, John Lannan, Jason Marquis, Jordan Zimmerman
The Washington Nationals really need Stephen Strasburg to return and improve upon his impressive start from last season.
21. New York Mets
Rotation: Johan Santana, Mike Pelfrey, Jonathon Niese, R.A. Dickey, Dillon Gee
The Mets need help and lots of it.
20. Cincinnati Reds
Rotation: Edinson Volquez, Bronson Arroyo, Johnny Cueto, Mike Leake, Homer Bailey
Cincinnati has one of the deepest rotations, going as far as seven deep for their starting pitchers.
19. Florida Marlins
Rotation: Josh Johnson, Javier Vasquez, Ricky Nolasco, Chris Volstad, Anibal Sanchez
The Florida Marlins have their strong ace in Josh Johnson with some solid pitchers behind him.
18. Chicago Cubs
Rotation: Ryan Dempster, Randy Wells, Thomas Diamond, Carlos Zambrano, Jeff Samardzija
If Carlos Zambrano can keep his temper under control and get back to pitching, the Chicago Cubs rotation gets a significant boost.
17. Houston Astros
Rotation: Wandy Rodriguez, Brett Myers, J.A. Happ, Bud Norris, Nelson Figueroa
The Houston Astros have a solid, albeit front-loaded, rotation in Wandy Rodriguez, Brett Myers and J.A. Happ.
16. Los Angeles Dodgers
Rotation: Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley, Ted Lilly, Hiroki Kuroda, Jon Garland
Clayton Kershaw has a great shot at winning the Cy Young in 2011.
Chad Billingsley through Jon Garland provide a solid lineup from start to finish.
