Chicago White Sox Set Starting Rotation For 2023

The Chicago White Sox have announced their starting rotation for the 2023 MLB season.

The team's Opening Day starter will be Dylan Cease, who replaces Lucas Giolito after finishing as the American League Cy Young runner-up in 2022.

Cease's offseason focus was on preparing his body to pitch more innings throughout the season, which will be essential for a potential playoff push.

The White Sox starting rotation for 2023:

  1. Dylan Cease
  2. Lance Lynn
  3. Lucas Giolito
  4. Mike Clevinger
  5. Michael Kopech

The team's home opener against the San Francisco Giants will be started by Michael Kopech, allowing him to showcase his talent and prove his worth in the rotation.

Overall, the success of the White Sox's starting rotation will depend on their ability to command the strike zone and consistently throw strikes. If they can do so, they have the potential to be one of the strongest rotations in baseball.

The White Sox will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2022 season, and their starting pitchers will play a crucial role in achieving that goal.
