Eric Huysman

Scott Feldman: While many would project the veteran to be the ace, I see him more as a number three guy. If he can keep up an ERA in the threes, then he should have a successful season.

Ryan Gonzalez

Collin McHugh

Kennon Riley

Collin McHugh

Brian Del Castillo

Scott Feldman: He is a nice pieces to a rotation, but would be even better if they were pushed down a slot.

Thomas O’Banion

Collin McHugh: Hopefully stays healthy all season. Not quite ready for the #2 spot.

Jason Burke

With Keuchel at one and McHugh at two, Feldman is the logical choice in the third slot. While his contract says he should be higher in the rotation, I’m sticking him in the three spot.
