Astros Roster Predictions: Starting Pitchers

1 of 7

We continue our Astros roster predictions, as we look at the starting rotation. Jeff Luhnow would be the first one to tell you that it doesn’t really matter who is in the rotation at the beginning of the season, because most often those five don’t pitch the whole season.

Last year the Astros broke camp with Scott Feldman, Brad Peacock, Dallas Keuchel, Jarred Cosart, and Lucas Harrell. Only two of those five stayed in the rotation for most of the year.

Who are the Candidates to start?

Scott Feldman

Dallas Keuchel

Collin McHugh

Brett Oberholtzer

Brad Peacock

Dan Straily

Mark Appel

Sam Deduno

Asher Wojciechowski

Which of these pitchers will make the last cut? It’s still up for grabs, but barring injury, I think the first three are locks to make rotation.

Let’s ask the writers at Climbing Tal’s Hill for their opinions.
