With the regular season a little over a month away from the beginning, we have been taking a look at the projected starters at each position. After ranking the starting rotations in the American League, let’s take a look at those in the Senior Circuit.

As a subjective list, many of the teams can almost be considered interchangeable as to where they are ranked. Depth charts were taken from Fangraphs.

1

Nationals - Stephen Strasburg, Max Scherzer, Patrick Corbin (L), Anibal Sanchez, Joe Ross

Strasburg is the reigning World Series MVP, Scherzer has finished in the top-five of Cy Young voting seven straight years (including winning it twice), and Corbin finished 11th in NL Cy Young voting last year (fifth in 2018).

2

Mets - Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Marcus Stroman, Steven Matz (L), Rick Porcello

deGrom has won the last two NL Cy Young Awards, but if Porcello pitches as he did last year (5.52 ERA, 1.39 WHIP), someone like Michael Wacha could take his place in the rotation.
