If Opening Day was tomorrow, which starters deserve one of the final two spots in the New York Yankees starting rotation?
After 25 days of spring training for the New York Yankees, the battle for the final two spots in the starting rotation is far from being decided — despite the moderate success experienced by the candidates.
Overall, the candidates — Luis Severino, Chad Green, Luis Cessa, Bryan Mitchell and Adam Warren — have combined for an ERA of 3.40 across 34.4 innings of work and have struck out 25 batters compared to walking 14.
Those numbers aren’t exactly as superb as they were after the first week of games, but it is certainly the opposite of the shakiness that was expected entering 2017.
Yes, the uninspiring competition is far from over, but who would get the final two spots if today was April 2, though? Elite Sports NY brings you its frontrunners of the rotation battle as we draw closer to the conclusion of spring training.
