    The SP position has always been a struggle for the Rangers, and they finally decided to add a few decent arms to the rotation this offseason. Most predictions have the rotation set as Corey Kluber, Lance Lynn, Mike Minor, Jordan Lyles, and Kyle Gibson.

    Kluber is coming off of one of his worst years to date, posting a 2-3 record, 5.80 ERA, and a 1.654 WHIP. He was injured most of last season, so he only played in 7 games.

    Lynn’s 2019 was arguably the best in his career, with a 16-11 record, 3.67 ERA, and a 1.219 WHIP. Lynn was a sleeper candidate for Cy Young Award, and finished 5th overall in voting for it.

    Minor also had a career year last year, posting a 14-10 record, 3.59 ERA, and a 1.238 WHIP. Minor finished 3 places behind Lynn for 8th overall in Cy Young voting. Lynn and Minor were often called one of the top 1-2 combinations, and it shows.

    Lyles had an impressive 2019, although it was a small sample size. He had a 7-1 record, a 2.45 ERA, and a 1.108 WHIP. This is one of the most underrated additions to our rotation this season, and he can definitely provide something to this team.

    Gibson had an average 2019, with a 13-7 record, a 4.84 ERA, and a 1.444 WHIP. While also a decent addition, he won’t be in the spotlight much this season.

    Even still, no one sees the Rangers as a team that can do anything this year. Overall, the Rangers rotation should be considered as a force to be reckoned with this season.
