The names may change, but the Braves remain a franchise that relies heavily on its starting pitching rotation. Atlanta starters ranked fifth in the majors in ERA among starting pitchers last season (3.51), and GM Frank Wren made news earlier this spring by signing Julio Teheran to a long-term deal. The big question this spring is whether another young phenom can outpitch a 37-year-old veteran for the fifth spot in the rotation.
