White Sox starting pitching ranked 14th in MLB in 2016. With two All-Star starters at top of rotation, lack of depth ultimately hurt starting group.

Now that the Chicago White Sox season is over, it is time to analyze each position on the Sox roster for 2016. Grading this is going to be subjective to some extent, mostly due to the fact  there are many factors to take into account.
