In the ever-changing world of Major League Baseball, the Rockies are looking to take a page out of the game’s history.

In a game that puts a premium on experience in a pitching staff, the Rockies underwent a major overhaul last year—in part because of injuries—and created the groundwork for a rotation that won’t have a rookie in 2018 but will still be the youngest contingent in Major League Baseball.

With youth comes some challenges, but Steve Foster and Darren Holmes, the Rockies pitching gurus, are confident in the young arms they oversee, despite the inconsistencies in the opening days for the 2018 season.

And they have some history on their side.

The Rockies did, after all, advance to the post-season a year ago with a rotation in which four rookies—-Kyle Freeland, German Marquez, Antonio Senzatela and Jeff Hoffman—not only combined to make 93 starts, but were a combined 38-28.
