Episode 39 - 2017 Pitching Preview

For today's episode, we previewed what to expect from the Braves' pitching staff this year. It's not that clear exactly what will happen, but it's a good bet it will be entertaining. At the very least, few teams have entered a season with a rotation featuring two pitchers in their forties like R.A. Dickey and Bartolo Colon. Yet the old guys, as well as 30 year old rehab project Jaime Garcia, are not really the story of this pitching staff. The real story will be if Julio Teheran turns into a real Cy Young candidate and Mike Foltynewicz becomes a good major leaguer. The bullpen should be an asset no matter what happens in the rotation. The other big question will be which prospects might step up to become contributors this season.
