Where does the Braves' starting rotation rank among the NL East in 2024?

Now that the Atlanta Braves have made their splashy starting pitcher acquisition, it seems like the perfect time to rank the NL East's starting pitching rotations!

3. Philadelphia Phillies

1. Zack Wheeler | 200 IP, 3.54 ERA
2. Aaron Nola | 198 IP, 3.81 ERA
3. Ranger Suarez | 155 IP, 4.04 ERA
4. Taijuan Walker | 175 IP, 4.75 ERA
5. Cristopher Sanchez | 139 IP, 4.04 ERA

Zack Wheeler is a stud at the top of this rotation. Aaron Nola is getting paid like one, and the rest of the staff is solid. Much will depend on which Aaron Nola shows up this year and how many of the Marlins' young pitchers can make the next step. Cristopher Sanchez has shown a lot of potential for the Phillies and gives them a nice upside play at the back end of the rotation.

2. Miami Marlins

1. Jesus Luzardo | 181 IP, 3.74 ERA
2. Eury Perez | 132 IP, 4.08 ERA
3. Braxton Garrett | 164 IP, 3.96 ERA
4. Edward Cabrera | 139 IP, 4.14 ERA
5. Trevor Rogers | 131 IP, 4.07 ERA

The Marlins' talented young pitching staff is strong. Despite having just two guys projected to crack the sub-4.00 ERA mark, the other three aren't projected to go very far over. These projections tend to be pretty conservative, so it's easy to see that they have talent up and down the rotation. This should be a fun staff to watch in 2024.
