MLB Power Rankings - Who Has Best Pitcher Rotation in 2020?

America's favorite pastime has finally agreed on how the 2020 season will be played. The "spring" training will start July 1, and the first pitch of the season will be thrown at either July 23 or July 24. 

Health measures are all set as the 60-game calendar will feature mainly divisional games. The rest of each club's games will be against their opposite league's corresponding geographical division (i.e., West vs. West, Central vs. Central and East vs. East) to limit travels.

With that sorted out, let's have a go at what franchise has the best rotation for the upcoming season!

MLB: Who has the best rotation?

Depth is essential in every sport, every roster, and every position in the field. Still, when it comes to the rotation of your pitchers, depth gets a whole new meaning. Pitcher rotation is essential for your team's title aspirations.

Let's review the best rotations in the MLB for the 2020 season. How will these impact each of these team's chances at winning the World Series?

5.Cleveland Indians

When you see the likes of Trevor and Corey Kluber leave your franchise and still be one of the hottest rotations in the league, that's a statement for your strength in rotation.

Shane Bieber, Mike Clevinger, Carlos Carrasco, Aaron Civale, and Zach Plesac are still a reliable rotation to have. The Indians were a 90+ win team last year, and they're likely to improve on that if their offense helps this rotation.

4.Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers are stacked in their rotation, although they leave some space for concerns. Clayton Kershaw, Julio Urías, Alex Wood, Walker Buehler, and David Price is a top-end rotation.

Price has had quite a decline in his production. With two severe injuries sidelined him for a good part of the 2019 season, the 34-year-old could be the weak link of this rotation, without him being a scrub, but clearly not in his prime anymore.

The concern with the Dodgers is their postseason production. Clayton Kershaw is now one of the biggest "chokers" in sports, and that has an impact not only in his form but also in the team's confidence.

3.New York Yankees

The New York Yankees had a solid rotation coming into this season. They saw it get quantifiably stronger with superstar pitcher Gerrit Cole's arrival.

Alongside Cole, J.A Happ, and Jordan Montgomery will bring their solid production as well. Masahiro Tanaka and James Paxton are both in contract years that will motivate them to up their already high output from the mound to guarantee many zeros in their next paycheck. 

Cole is the odds-on favorite to win the Cy Young in the American League, listed with a +250 chance to win the award. When you have that in your lineup, it's tough to dismiss you as one of the best rotations.

2.New York Mets

Staying in the Big Apple, at number two, we put the New York Mets. The Mets just had an 86-win season, but they will look to improve behind an incredible rotation that steps into the mound.

Noah Syndergaard will look to show his full potential once and for all. Marcus Stroman increased his strikeout production heavily last year for the Mets. However, his repertoire isn't too deep, his sinkerball is elite. Rick Porcello is a former Cy Young winner, and while he may have passed his prime, he is still a reliable high-end pitcher.

Then, you have two-time reigning National League Cy Young winner and +250 odds-on favorite to win it for a third consecutive time in Jacob DeGrom. DeGrom is arguably MLB's best pitcher, so having him boosts your rotation and your winning chances exponentially.

1.Washington Nationals

If you are the reigning champions due to your rotation, well, that says it all. The production seen by the Nationals rotation last October was historic. Pure top-form from them.

Now, repeating that historic season may be quite the dream, but having three-quarters of that high-level pitching is still going to make it hard for anyone to score on the Nats.

Four of the starting pitchers ranked in the top 25 in ERA+ (Earned Run Average) in the league, and three of them are in the top 15.

Max Scherzer, Patrick Corbin, Stephen Strasburg, Aníbal Sánchez, and Joe Ross is an absolute nightmare to face. They are the key for Nat's ring, and as long as they keep their level, it's hard to see another rotation overtaking the top spot in the league.

Find the best MLB odds at SkyBook Sportsbook. Even though the rotation won't be the only point to consider, it is a "sleeper" of a tool when it comes to choosing your MLB champion. Just ask the Nationals.
