The Phillies have plenty of starting pitching between the majors and minors, and now they have to figure out where they will all start the year.

The Phillies have made it a point to acquire as much pitching as possible the past few seasons. In all of the trades they made in the past few seasons, nearly every single one brought back a pitcher, if not more. It hurt to see some of our beloved veterans go, but in return the club got assets for the future.

After completing all these trades and seeing many different pitchers develop and move through the system, many are close to, if not ready for, the major-leagues. However, only five can be in the big-league rotation, while the others will have to return to the minors.

Let’s try to break down who will end up where when camp breaks and the regular season begins.
