Over the past few years, the Brewers have taken a non-traditional approach to starting pitchers. They leaned heavier on their bullpen and limited their starters, and the approach worked for them. However, with the minimum time in the minors returning to 15 days, and rosters being limited to 28 players in September, the Brewers may not be able to employ that strategy as easily in 2020. Getting a strong starting pitcher will help with that.
Following the trade of Chase Anderson, the starting rotation for next season is a big question mark right now.
