More Guardians Lineup Analysis

The Guardians rotation was flat out filthy yet again. They had four starters with over 200 innings pitched, and all four finished with an ERA under 3.50. There were some rumors for this offseason that Cleveland was going to shop Corey Kluber and also a few other names. At the moment this rotation is intact, but it does make us wonder what they could do over the next few months. Kluber had another Cy Young caliber season, but fell short to Blake Snell in the voting. He went 20-7 with 222 strikeouts. Kluber is a top five pitcher in baseball right now, and his pinpoint control is one of the more underrated things about him. He will look to lead the Cleveland staff again, but maybe a trade does happen at some point during the season. While Trevor Bauer may be a nut job, he put together a career year. He had 221 strikeouts in 175 innings, and sported a 2.21 ERA. Bauer was a bit of a wild card in the past, but 2018 has hyped him up to continue this type of dominance heading into the new season. Projections have him ticking downward a little bit, but not by much.

How nice it must be to have Carlos Carrasco as your number three starter. He led the team in strikeouts, and had a 3.38 ERA. Carrasco is a terrific right-handed arm, who is going to be in Cleveland for the next few seasons. There is a huge advantage for having Carrasco going up against other team’s number three starter. His above average strikeout stuff and consistency should continue in 2019. Mike Clevinger was a surprising name who made a major jump last season. He had a 3.02 ERA, and was the fourth starter to have over 200 strikeouts. Clevinger will be the fourth starter again for the Guardians, and has potential to repeat 2018 type numbers. Shane Bieber rounds out the fifth starting spot, as Danny Salazar needs to get healthy and rebuild his reputation with the Guardians. Bieber looked very good for being a long term option for the Guardians, but he did have a glaring weakness against left-handed hitters. This was the only real knock about him, especially with his above average control.
