A Look At The Rays Rotation, By The Numbers

By Dustin Staggers

With pitchers and catchers reporting in just a few days, I thought it was time to take take a peek at the Rays potential Starting Rotation, by the numbers.

I would hypothesize that this rotation is pretty much set in stone barring one potential change.  If David Price does not show some development on a third pitch, and Jeremy Hellickson continues to progress at his current rate, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Price move into the pen ala our World Series Run, and have Hellickson get a crack at the rotation.  He has 4 pitches, and shows much better command of those pitches, than Price has shown thusfar.

Without further ado…
