Athletics seem to have starting rotation set

MESA, Ariz. – By the way the rotation has been moving along in spring training, it is easy to figure out how the A’s rotation is going to look this season.

Starting Pitcher Jharel Cotton 

According to Susan Slusser at SFGATE, the pitchers are already in order. Right now it’s Kendall Graveman, Sean Manaea, and Jharel Cotton as the 1-2-3 guys. Andrew Triggs and Raul Alcantara seem to be the next two up as of right now. 

The one man left hanging seems to be Jesse Hahn, who was the A’s number 3 man for most of last season. Hahn, who has struggled since coming back from an injury last season has not found a comfortable rhythm throughout spring training this season, and in his most recent outing he gave up eight hits and seven runs in three innings.

Hahn will likely find himself in Nashville playing for the A’s affiliates to start the year.
