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???
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.
