It’s always fun to watch media get hyped about the MLB season and put out their rankings way too early. And putting out a list of the best starting rotations in baseball in December with minimal movement occurring is certainly too early. But regardless, we like to see where MLB pundits believe the Dodgers fall.
In terms of starting rotations, the Dodgers came in ranked as the second-best in all of baseball with the latest update. They had the best rotation ERA in baseball during the 2020 season, and that was without David Price in the middle as they had expected.
Having Price in the Dodgers rotation in 2021 will only make them a much deeper threat. Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, and Price profile as the obvious top three in the starting rotation. After that, Los Angeles has the option to mix some young arms in and out of the rotation.
Tony Gonsolin, Dustin May, and Julio Urias are three of the main guys who will likely see time in the rotation at some point. But don’t forget that the Dodgers have their top prospect in Josiah Gray ready to hit the big leagues at any time, as well as number 9 prospect Mitchell White.
Should the Dodgers be the top rotation in baseball? Maybe not, but they certainly boast one of the deepest rotations in all of baseball.
Padres Ranked #1
As can be expected after big moves were just made, the San Diego Padres came in as the top starting rotation in baseball. Fresh off of trades that got them Blake Snell and Yu Darvish, it’s not much of a surprise to see MLB media get excited about their staff. I think it’s still advantage Dodgers, but I might be a little biased.
