Our future rotation


As I see it, if our elite pitching prospects pan out, we could challenge for the best rotation in baseball in a couple years. Question is what do we do at this years deadline or in the offseason with a surplus of starting pitching?

 

If Lowe continues to get better would you still look to trade him and his bad contract? Even though KK hasn't won a game, he has been solid; he isn't a bad #5 starter but has a bad contract as well and a lot of teams need another starter. We have the luxury in having Medlen who has been good but needs to go deeper in games and limit the HR balls. We also got a couple of guys who could be a #5 starter if we decide to deal someone- Resop, Jose Ortegano, Todd Reddmond, maybe even Mike Minor(We need a lefty starter eventually)

 

What could we get for JJ? he is an excellent pitcher, very young, great command and will only get better.  I'm assuming if they decided to trade him they could get a pretty good package back. I love JJ but he is a Boras agent and will demand a ton of $$.

 

Teheran has been filthy and is only what 19? Pretty soon I'm guessing he'll be a top 10 prospect and before he is called up I bet he could be the top pitching prospect. If we deal one or two starters I could see him getting a shot next year in camp but will most likely start at AA or AAA.

 

Delgado has been almost as impressive as Teheran. I bet Teheran and him will reach the Majors at the same time and may be moved up level by level with each other, pretty damn good duo.

 

Viscanzo started off slow but has been on a tear lately. He will be called up 3rd out of the trio most likely. Has the least amount of experience and very young too. It is scary thinking he is the 3rd best out of the 3 when he was like the 3rd best prospect in the Yankees farm.

 

In 2 years I'm guessing a rotation of Hanson, Hudson, Minor, Teheran, Delgado. Lowe will be traded, KK contract will be up, JJ will be traded and Medlen will be in the pen. Imagine if we somehow didn't trade Adam Wainwright. Our future is bright, now we just got to find some more offense and power.
