The Chicago White Sox have one of the League’s best starting rotations.
The Chicago White Sox opened the offseason by trading for Lance Lynn which immediately slingshotted their rotation into the top tier of baseball. Where do the White Sox stack up with baseball best? MLB.com writer Anthony Castrovince ranked the top 10 rotations in baseball and ranked the White Sox seventh.
As the rest of the offseason rolls along at a glacial pace, the New York Mets finally added some excitement by acquiring Francisco Lindor. This obviously has major implications for the AL Central division with arguably its best player leaving. What many people overlook is the fact Carlos Carasco was included in the transaction. During his time with the Indians, Carasco has developed into one of the most underrated pitchers in baseball. His presence in the Mets rotation paired with Jacob deGrom makes them even better.
However, they are not the only team that has upgraded their rotation this offseason. The San Diego Padres shocked the baseball world by adding Blake Snell. They followed that up by acquiring Yu Darvish in the same week!
The offseason is far from over. National League Cy Young Award winner, Trevor Bauer, is still on the open market. When he signs it is sure to rock the landscape of Major League Baseball. After the latest move by the Mets now is a perfect time to reassess his list.
