Top Rotations in MLB: The World Series defending champions have gotten off to a great start this season being the first team to reach 10 wins. The Dodgers haven’t skipped a beat and their pitching rotation is even better than last year.
L.A. is sitting at the top of the list of best rotations in Major League Baseball and here is why.
Last season they had the best team ERA in the National League with 3.29 and they now have the pitcher with last year’s best individual ERA (1.73).
Cy Young award winner Clayton Kershaw (L) is one of the best in the rotation. Last year he had an ERA of 2.16 proving he is an elite player. Kershaw throws a 4-seam fastball, a curveball, changeup, and a slider and mixes up his pitches well to get ahead of the batter quickly.
Another Cy Young winner and new addition to the Dodgers is Trevor Bauer (R). The Dodgers really created an elite rotation when they added Bauer to the roster. Last season he had an ERA of 1.73 last season in 11 games.
Bauer throws a fastball, slider, knuckle curve, and a cutter. When he made his debut for L.A. he was throwing a no-hitter through 6 innings. Bauer is expected to have 4.2 wins above replacement.
Next is 26-year-old Walker Buehler (R) who to some is the Dodgers ACE. They have that good of a rotation where multiple pitchers are ACE’s. Beuhler throws a slider, changeup, curve, and his favorite a 4-seam fastball. In eight regular-season games, Buehler had an ERA of 3.44 in eight regular-season games and had 42 strikeouts.
24-year-old Julio Urias (L) had a great season last year with an ERA of 3.27. He pitches a changeup, slider, curveball, and a 4-seam fastball. They are already saying Urias is a powerful difference-maker on the team and will continue to grow throughout the season.
Lastly is 23 years old Dustin May (R) has shown the organization he is the real deal working his way up into the starting rotation. He throws a cutter, 4-seam fastball, and a sinker. Last season he had an ERA of 2.57 in 56 innings.
