There’s a long way to go before 2016, so a lot is going to change.
And certainly, the Rox will likely sign a free agent or two to fill in, but all things considered, here’s my first five:
1. Jorge De La Rosa
2. Jon Gray
3. (free agent)
4. Tyler Chatwood
5. Jordan Lyles
And the next three, when things inevitably get bad:
1. Chad Bettis
2. Chris Rusin
3. Eddie Butler
Expect Flande and Bergman in the pen, Hale and Matzek in AAA along with Bettis, Rusin, and Butler, and the young guys (Freeland, Musgrave, Anderson) quickly coming to create more optimism among Rockies fans along side Gray.
