Who Will be in the 2014 Rotation?

Indians beat writer Jordan Bastian gives his thoughts on the Indians 2014 starting rotation in the latest video posted to In the video, which lasts a whopping 51 seconds (Hey, we’ll take what we can get at this point), Bastian talks about the outlook of the rotation and how he thinks things will work out. AMong some of the topics briefly covered – Justin Masterson as an ace, Salazar providing quality innings in year two, and Trevor Bauer chances at making the rotation as the fifth starter.

This is certainly nothing Earth shattering by any means. Most of what Bastian covers in the interview consists of topics we have covered in great detail here at Wahoo’s on First. Even still, it’s an interesting take on the current state of the Indians rotation from somebody that is “in the know,” so to speak. You can watch the video below.
