With the 2012 season just about 2 1/2 months from kicking off with pitchers and catchers, it is time to take a look at how the Arizona Diamondbacks stack up by position. Naturally, I start with the starting pitching rotation, which could be even stronger in 2012 than it was in 2011. Here’s my take on how things play out going into next season.
Free agent possibilities: Roy Oswalt
We know Kennedy will be the number one and Hudson the number two. After that, it is still all a guessing game. The Saunders situation is still in doubt. Who knows what the Dbacks plans are with him? Roy Oswalt has been rumored to be a possibility for the Dbacks. I think he is only up for consideration though if they decide against Saunders. Good bet the fifth guy in the rotation will be a fight between Parker and Bauer. That’s just my opinion though.
I could never have guessed Collmenter would be in the rotation before last season started. Most people didn’t know about him, myself included. So, these are just my guesses for now. We’ll see what happens.
