NATS STILL HAVE THE BEST ROTATION IN THE MAJORS

By Sam Bush

The Nats had the best rotation in baseball in 2019 (per bWAR standards) and it returns essentially untouched for ’20:

Max Scherzer with two years left on his franchise-altering deal, Stephen Strasburg re-signed to a seven-year deal himself, Patrick Corbin with five years left and Aníbal Sánchez with one and a club option for ’21. Really, the only lingering question is who fills the fifth spot. Austin Voth appears to have the inside track based on ’19 performances, but he will compete against Joe Ross, Erick Fedde and any other Spring Training surprises for a spot in the rotation.

Rotation if the season started today:

1) Max Scherzer
2) Stephen Strasburg
3) Patrick Corbin
4) Aníbal Sánchez
5) Austin Voth
