Just about into the third full week of the MLB season, one thing has been quite clear, well aside from a lot of early injuries, that pitching depth isn’t what we’ve seen in the past. There are a few teams that have very deep pitching staffs, but the rest are seemingly up in the air on a nearly daily basis and there are far more bullpen games and tandem pitching days than there were even in 2019. Whether that’s due to teams being conservative early in the year with starters because of the short season last year or there’s just not enough good starting options is up for debate. However, with that in mind, we’re going to look at the next starting pitching options who are likely to come up this year to help their teams.
