How many starting pitchers can the Los Angeles Dodgers use in a single season and still be in contention for the playoffs?
This is a question Dodgers President Andrew Friedman and the Dodgers front office are probably asking themselves right now as the team moves Clayton Kershaw to the 60 day disabled list and relatively unknown starting pitcher Brock Stewart is shelled against the Rockies.
If every pitcher is healthy, Friedman has the good problem of having too many quality starting pitchers.
In a perfect world, the Friedman and Manager Dave Roberts would have the following pitchers to choose from in September. Who should they choose to be in the five man starting rotation?
Hyun Jin Ryu
Contracts aside, which of the above pitchers should round out the starting rotation in 2017?
