The Tampa Bay Rays are in for a battle this season.

From top to bottom, the division will be competitive, and although a team like Boston may have taken a step back, they still feature some names that the Rays will have to battle throughout the year, especially with how big some of the rivalries are with the club.

With that being said, MLB's Twitter posted a tweet hyping up the Rays' potential 2023 rotation and how lethal it could be, but with that said, the division has improved, with some teams loading up on pitching, which is where we look at how the rotation stacks up against others in the AL East.

With that being said, here is the 2023 starting rotation depth chart, according to the Tampa Bay Rays roster on the team's website: Shane McClanahan, Tyler Glasnow, Zach Eflin, Drew Rasmussen, Jeffrey Springs, Yonny Chirinos, Luis Patino, and Josh Fleming.
