With the signing of Lowe, K. Kawakami, and Vazquez this offseason we have seemingly achieved our offseason goal of bolstering our rotation. But that opens up some new questions about the future of our pitching staff.
With all 3 of these guys under Braves control for multiple years some of our younger talent will have to either stay in the minors or be traded. And these are guys that will be ready to be starters in the majors.
Reyes, Morton, Parr, and the highly touted Tommy Hanson are all possible candidates for the 5th rotation spot this season.
So if we stay put then by 2010 our rotation consists of:
Lowe, Kawakami, Jurrjens, Vazquez, and most likely Hanson.
So what will happen next for the younger pitchers that already have MLB experience in Reyes, Morton, and Parr?
