Future of the Rotation

The Twins pitching staff currently has been the second best in the American League (according ERA, admittedly not perfect). Thats pretty exciting, especially considering 4 of the 5 are young pitchers.

In no particular order

1. Scott Baker, 28, signed through 2012

2. Francisco Liriano, 26, Under team control for a couple more years.

3. Nick Blackburn, 28, signed through 2013 with an option for 2014

4. Kevin Slowey, 25, Under team control for 3 years (i think)

 

So it seems that they are all here to stay, however, as you all know, there is some great talent in the high minors that could challenge their spots.

Between Kyle Gibson, David Bromberg, Deolis Guerra and whoever im missing, thats at least three guys that are projected front to middle rotation guys who will be ready in the next couple years.

And of course we can't forget about Perkins, Duensing and THE ManShip.

Anyway, where do you see the rotation going in the next year or two?
