The starting rotation of the Houston Astros were ranked as one of the worst in baseball last season. All across the team stat sheet, Houston’s starting rotation saw their name near the bottom in every category. 

ERA – 4.79 (Last in MLB)

ERA+ – 85 (Last in AL)

SIERA – 4.52 (29th in MLB)

FIP – 4.42 (27th in MLB)

xFIP – 4.39 (29th in MLB)

K/9 rate – 6.62 (26th in MLB)

BB/9 rate – 3.62 (Last in MLB)

BABIP – .307 (27th in MLB)

WAR – 7.1 (25th in MLB)
