Pitching Backward: Starting Pitching Depth, Ranked


Jeff Long

Anticipating the disasters that will befall this year's rotations.

Each of the past two seasons, Sam Miller or I have done this fun bit of analysis that looks at which teams would fare best if they had to resort to their sixth and seventh starters (2014, 2015). Obviously, every GM needs to fill out the top five slots in his rotation, but that’s just the bare minimum. Over the course of the season, nearly two-thirds of teams will have two starters injured at the same time, meaning fans will get acquainted with sixth, seventh, and possibly even eighth and ninth starters.

As spring training ramps up, injuries are inevitable. So it makes sense for teams to assess their options now, just in case something goes awry before the real games start.

MLBDC Moves to Baseball Prospectus.

The in-depth organizational depth charts formerly available at mlbdepthcharts.com have now officially transitioned to Baseball Prospectus! Not everything has moved, but the most important feature, the team pages, has.

(Please note that the depth charts containing the playing time projections that power PECOTA are still alive and well on their own homepage, which is accessible through the same dropdown menu. I maintain both sets of depth charts, so they should match up at the major-league level.)
