The New York Mets assembled an incredible top-of-the-rotation with Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer before the year; and the New York Yankees have enjoyed both good health and breakout seasons from almost all members.
The Atlanta Braves, the Tampa Bay Rays, and of course the Milwaukee Brewers also have excellent units.
Yet the Los Angeles Dodgers have, quite clearly, the best rotation in baseball.
The numbers don’t lie: with a 2.64 ERA, they are the best in the league and the closest unit, the Yankees, is at 3.03.
“Top rotation ERAs in baseball right now: 1. Dodgers (2.64). 2. Yankees (3.03). t-3. Astros (3.23). t-3. Rays. 5. Twins (3.54). Next-closest NL club is the Padres at seventh (3.59). Dodgers starters have allowed 5 ER in 37.2 IP in July (1.19 ERA),” The Athletic’s Fabian Ardaya tweeted.

Anyone who has been watching baseball for the last decade shouldn’t be surprised to see the Dodgers leading the league in ERA.
The Dodgers Are Built To Succeed
They have the best coaches, cutting-edge tech resources, and the most impressive player development staff available to help turn their players into the best versions of themselves.
Still, it’s amazing to see their work come to fruition.
Tony Gonsolin is now a legitimate candidate to start the All-Star Game after being viewed as a depth piece for years.
He owns a 1.54 ERA in 81.2 frames.
Tyler Anderson went from an afterthought to a legitimate ace, with a 3.09 ERA in 84.1 frames.
They have other depth starters available and ready to go when the organization needs them.
It’s truly incredible how they can take a pitcher and turn around his career for the good.
The Dodgers are first in the NL West by six games, and they deserve every bit of success coming their way.
