So far this offseason, the Baltimore Orioles have made exactly one addition to their starting rotation, signing right handed pitcher Kyle Gibson. With a lot of starting pitchers having gone to other teams in free agency, there aren't a ton of appealing options left on the market. The top option available based on WAR is Wade Miley. Other options include Michael Wacha, Zack Greinke, and Dylan Bundy.

Birds Watcher Predicts the 2023 Baltimore Orioles Starting Rotation


In the event that the Orioles don't add any more starting pitchers, the Birds Watcher team made some predictions as to what we think the opening day rotation will look like if the Orioles don't bring in any more starters. Note that this is in no particular order, and that John Means is not included here because he will not be healthy for opening day as he progresses in his recovery from Tommy John Surgery.

How do you, the reader, think we did with our predictions? Did we nail it? Are we so wrong that we should quit writing for this site out of shame? Anyone you'd include? Exclude? Let us know on Twitter, Facebook, or by leaving a comment on this post. Here's to hoping the Orioles keep adding to the roster, whatever area that may be.
