General manager Alex Anthopoulos spoke with reporters at this week's GM Meetings in Scottsdale, reiterating a desire to enhance the rotation with veteran help. Mike Soroka, Max Fried and Mike Foltynewicz comprise three spots in the projected 2020 rotation. That leaves two openings, vacated by free agents Dallas Keuchel and Julio Teheran. They would like to add at least one more known quantity, in which case the final spot could be a rotating door similar to 2019. They're less concerned about their bullpen, where Mark Melancon and Shane Greene are penciled in for the later innings. The team likes its internal options and sees value in the blend of experience and youth likely to assemble the group.
