It’s been proven time and again that pitching wins championships, and while the Boston Red Sox got to the postseason last year on the strength of the league’s No. 1 offense, their pitching staff stepped up big in the playoffs and helped them claim the title.

This offseason has seen the pitching market develop relatively slowly, due in large part to teams waiting on Masahiro Tanaka to pick a team, and there are still a number of unsigned arms that will likely break camp as part of someone’s rotation.

Aside from Ervin Santana and Ubaldo Jimenez, who remain two of the more talked about free agents, the likes of A.J. Burnett, Bronson Arroyo, Paul Maholm, Joe Saunders and Chris Capuano all remain on the market as well.

That could certainly shake things up between now and Opening Day, but as things stand right now, here is a look at where all 30 MLB teams’ rotations rank. A team’s projected five-man rotation carried the most weight in where each team ranked, though depth was considered as well, considering most teams deal with injuries throughout the season and are forced to turn to others outside of those five.
