Pitching Rotations? Working up through the rotation in MLB?

Postby ericchow » Tue Nov 09, 2010 2:28 pm

When a minor leaguer is called up in September as a pitcher and gets some innings at the end of the season, is it likely that he will be number 1, 2, or 3 in the rotation the next season if he pitches well. Like if Stephen Strasburg had not gotten hurt, would he have still been the number 5 guy next year, or would he have moved up to number 4? Or is it possible that he would have started next season as a number 1 or 2 guy???

He would have started the season as the #1 without question. Typically the rotation order is up for grabs every offseason with the obvious exceptions of established aces.

I think there's too many variables to give a definitive answer. A lot depends on who else is in the rotation, the manager, and of course the talent of the pitcher.
