NL East – Armed And Dangerous?
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, gives us a preview of what the current NL East rotations look like while warning that some things could still change between now and the end of the offseason.
I went an extra step and decided to place last season’s ERA and WHIP next to each pitcher. If a pitcher made more than 75% of his starts in the minor leagues, those numbers were used and indicated.
Mike Pelfrey (3.66, 1.38)
Jon Niese (4.20, 1.46)
R.A. Dickey (2.84, 1.19)
Dillon Gee (4.96, 1.33 AAA)
Boof Bonser (6.12, 1.64) Newly acquired or Pat Misch (3.82, 1.25)
Tim Hudson (2.83, 1.15)
Tommy Hanson (3.33, 1.17)
Derek Lowe (4.00, 1.36)
Jair Jurrjens (4.64, 1.39)
Mike Minor (3.44, 1.15) or Brandon Beachy (1.73, 1.01 AAA)
Josh Johnson (2.30, 1.10)
Ricky Nolasco (4.51, 1.28)
Anibal Sanchez (3.55, 1.34)
Chris Volstad (4.59, 1.41)
Javier Vazquez (5.32, 1.39) Newly acquired
Roy Halladay (2.44, 1.04)
Cliff Lee (3.18, 1.00) Newly acquired
Roy Oswalt (2.76, 1.02)
Cole Hamels (3.06, 1.17)
Joe Blanton (4.82, 1.41)
Livan Hernandez (3.66, 1.32)
Jordan Zimmermann (1.59, 0.83 AAA)
John Lannan (4.65, 1.56)
Jason Marquis (6.60, 1.70)
Yuniesky Maya (3.38, 1.31 AAA) or Ross Detwiler (2.27, 1.16 AAA)
Rubin also reminds us that the pitcher who draws Opening Day assignment will most likely oppose Josh Johnson, and then Roy Halladay in his next start.
