Why a Six-Man Rotation Could Make Sense for Pirates (+)



Rich Hill, Pittsburgh Pirates

Spring training games have officially begun, so it’s not too early to start looking at the potential Opening Day roster.

Looking specifically at the Pittsburgh Pirates projected rotation, there are currently five players penciled in to fill out a traditional five-man starting rotation.

Mitch Keller is coming off of his best season as a big leaguer and could be in line to start the Pirates’ opener against the Reds in Cincinnati on March 30.

JT Brubaker is another returnee of the Pirates and is a capable back-end starter who could be due for an improved season just like Keller a year ago.
