Grading the Houston Astros' 2022 Starters
The 2022 Houston Astros secured their second World Series in franchise history. After 106 wins and a world championship, it's safe to say most members of the team performed well and met or exceeded expectations.
This offseason, Climbing Tal's Hill will be offering up their report card for the 2022 Astros. Kicking off the series, we'll review their starting rotation.
The Astros rode a dominant rotation to great success throughout the season, as their starters collectively went 84-39 with a 2.95 ERA and 1.066 WHIP. Their overpowering rotation consistently went deep into games, allowing the bullpen, also a dominant force, to stay fresh. Aside from a few small critiques, not much can be said negatively about the Astros' starters. So let's dive in.
Disclaimer: Lance McCullers Jr. and Hunter Brown will not be appearing on the list, as they didn't spend a full season in the rotation. Each will receive a future grade.
