AL Only Pitching Rotations – Bullpen Depth
Another baseball season is coming as teams get ready for the 2011 year to get underway at the end of March. While American League teams are still figuring out which players will make the final roster spots, we have projected starting rotations and some of the bull pen pitchers we expect to make AL rosters.
As happens every year you will find teams that walk in spring training, and we already know who will be the full rotation as other teams will be shuffling through pitcher after pitcher to make it through a full season. The Red Sox are one team that should be a favorite to win the World Series this season as the support a strong team at every phase.
A team like the Royals, on the other hand, should struggle mightily on the mound outside of All Star closer Joakim Soria nailing down their victories. For the life of me, I can’t stand teams that refuse to show their fan base, they will keep proven players. The Royals had a CY Young winning pitcher in Zack Greinke, and they gave him away to the Brewers.
Sure, Greinke has only had one truly strong season, but it’s not like the Royals can be choosy about which proven pitchers they should keep in the prime of their careers.
Anyway, take a look at the projected pitchers below for each American league teams as we get set for another great season of fantasy baseball.
