Brodie Van Wagenen: Mets have ‘deepest rotation in baseball,’ Steven Matz still seen as starter

Brodie Van Wagenen said Thursday at the Winter Meetings that the Mets have “probably the deepest starting pitching rotation in baseball,” noting that the added depth after signing Rick Porcello and Michael Wacha gives the team lots of “flexibility” when it comes to how they prepare for 2020.

As things currently stand, the Mets have Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Marcus Stroman, Steven Matz, Porcello, and Wacha as rotation options.

They also have the ability to use Seth Lugo or Robert Gsellman in the rotation, with Van Wagenen saying the Mets are “staring at eight potential starting pitchers.”

But Lugo and Gsellman will almost certainly be in the bullpen, Van Wagenen suggested, adding that “nothing has changed” regarding his stance that Syndergaard is staying, while saying that he views Matz as a starting pitcher.

Bit presumptive, isn’t it?
