Previously, we took a look at what I project as the Pittsburgh Pirates end of 2022 lineup. Today, let’s look at a projection of their starting 5 pitchers.
Recently, we took a look at a potential version of what the Pittsburgh Pirates line-up looked like at the end of the 2022 season. Given that the Pittsburgh Pirates have a ton of good talent throughout the minor leagues, we should see a decent amount arriving to the major league level within the next 1-3 seasons.
Much of this higher end talent is pitching. Since becoming the Pirate general manager in the 2019-2020 offseason, many of the prospects he has acquired are pitchers. In the 2020 draft, all but one of his draft picks were pitchers. This past offseason in his three big trades, he acquired 7 pitching prospects. Many of his worthwhile picks this past draft were also arms (albiet yong ones). Plus he got a few more pitchers this past trade deadline.
So with that, let’s take a look at what the team’s starting 5 pitchers could be at the end of 2022, with this being a group that could feature multiple pitchers who play a big role on the next contending Pirate team.
