The Cardinals’ Rotation Can Keep Them in Games

The St. Louis Cardinals starting rotation has been announced, and with Carlos Martinez, Daniel Ponce de Leon, and John Gant in it, there is plenty of risk. Due to injuries to Miles Mikolas, Kwang-Hyun Kim, and Dakota Hudson, the Cardinals are left with a shortage of starting pitchers with MLB experience. Thus, Daniel Ponce de Leon, who profiles better as a reliever until he can improve his control, and John Gant are moving from the bullpen into the rotation. Additionally, Carlos Martinez will also be seeking to prove that he can still hold down a rotation spot.
