Starting pitching depth was expected to be a strength of the 2019 Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers were lucky that they had options, but it’s hard to call any aspect of their starting rotation a strength.
Jhoulys Chacin, Brandon Woodruff, Corbin Burnes, Freddy Peralta, and Zach Davies started the year in the Milwaukee Brewers rotation. Chacin ended up DFA’ed, Burnes spent half of 2019 in the Minors, Peralta only made eight starts, and Woodruff spend almost two months on the Injured List. Of the original five starters, only Davies made more than 30 starts.
