What Does The Rotation Look Like?

This is an extremely unlikely scenario, but it just might work. If it were going to happen then there would likely be a pitcher from each group used. The upside of it is that there can be a competitive pitcher going on five days rest instead of four.

Because the Milwaukee Brewers rotation does not have someone who is a true ace, being more rested might be the way to go. It gives options to Craig Counsell, even though it is a pretty unorthodox strategy.

So, if I am making the decisions, here is the six man rotation I would go with:

  1. Chase Anderson
  2. Zach Davies
  3. Jhoulys Chacin
  4. Brent Suter
  5. Brandon Woodruff
  6. Yovani Gallardo

Will This Even Happen?


Is It Worth Considering?

Anything is if it can give the Brewers a chance to win. This idea is pretty out there and not based in any real whispers. It is just a thought because of the team with Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani. But it might be crazy enough to work.

When Jimmy Nelson gets back, this idea becomes irrelevant. If the injured righty comes back healthy and looking like last year, Milwaukee honestly has a pretty decent rotation. The group will do the job to keep the runs down for the newly revamped lineup.

Next: Adrian Houser Already Behind

Even if this is a longshot, I have been able to talk myself into it. I finally like the idea. To start this, I hated it. But as I looked through all of the stats, it began to look better and better. That being said, don’t count on this, it is just a hypothetical. One thing that is certain is that the battle for the rotation will be fun to watch.
