The New York Mets are going for it in 2023.
After falling short against the San Diego Padres in the NL Wild Card Series and losing their ace in Jacob deGrom, New York made some key moves to bolster their starting rotation, signing both Justin Verlander and Jose Quintana.
On Saturday, they signed Japanese right-hander Kodai Senga to a five-year deal to fill out the final spot in their starting rotation.
On Twitter, FOX Sports posted a graphic featuring each starter in the fold for the Mets in 2023, which shows just how stacked the Mets rotation is.

Mets Rotation Is Stacked
After barely falling short of their first NL East title since 2015, the Mets were forced to play in the Wild Card round, where they were eliminated by the Padres.
But even after losing deGrom, owner Steve Cohen and GM Billy Eppler are hungry and are doing everything they can to improve the Mets for 2023.
With their latest additions, the Mets are likely going to be the favorites in the NL East entering the 2023 season, even with deGrom and likely Chris Bassitt both gone.
They won 101 games during the regular season, marking the first time since 1988 that they had won 100 games or more.
These are five solid starters that will make up the Mets rotation next season, which appears to be their top strength.
