Orioles positional preview: Rotation

The Orioles blew by projections in almost every facet last season, and the rotation was no exception. Kyle Bradish and Grayson Rodriguez developed into frontline starters, and veteran Kyle Gibson performed admirably while mentoring Baltimore’s young arms. Tyler Wells shined in the first half before running out of gas, and Dean Kremer flourished in a make or break type of season.

Of course, it wasn’t all roses on the mound. Rodriguez failed to make the Opening Day roster and struggled during his first stint with the team. Offseason acquisition Cole Irvin fell short of expectations, and trade deadline arrival Jack Flaherty disappointed for the duration of the second half.
