Starting Rotation

1. Jacob deGrom

2. Nathan Eovaldi

3. Martin Perez

4. Jon Gray

5. Andrew Heaney

This could end up being the best Texas Rangers rotation in the team's history. That doesn't really say much considering the Rangers history with pitching. It has the chance to not only be the Rangers best rotation, but also one of the best overall rotations in all of baseball. The health of the pitching staff will determine how far this team can go in 2023.

If their performances in spring training are an indicator of how good they could be then we are in for a special season. deGrom, Eovaldi, and Gray combined for 39.2 innings pitched this Spring and allowed only six runs. In a competitive AL West the Rangers might have the edge in rotation depth and an ability to strike guys out.
