Two Months From Spring Training, A Look at the D’backs Starting Rotation

By Scott Allen

The Arizona Diamondbacks are less than two months from having pitchers and catchers report in mid February, so nothing like the present time to look at the projected starting pitching rotation for the D'backs. It's not the rotation of the San Francisco Giants or Philadelphia Phillies, but it won't make you go out and scream Pittsburgh Pirates either. Wait, or will it?

#1 - Daniel Hudson.  Hudson was a huge surprise in 2010.  The question will be weather or not he can repeat the success.

#2 - Ian Kennedy.  Can he sustain a good consistent season from start to finish?  We'll see.

#3 - Barry Enright.  Got tired at the end of the season in 2010.  Durability will be questioned.

#4 - Joe Saunders.  Didn't exactly blow us away after being traded from the Angels.  Is a solid lefty who SHOULD eat innings at least.

#5 - Zach Duke. A Pirates cast-off.  Makes you wonder why Pittsburgh so easily gave up on the former rookie of the year candidate?
