5. Stephen Strasburg

Might this finally be the year that Strasburg puts it all together? After battling injuries and pitching limits, Strasburg may finally be ready to make that next step to join the elite group of starters. He did not pitch during a four-game series in which the Cubs swept Washington, but the return series is scheduled for June 13-15 in the Nation’s capital.

Like Arrieta, Strasburg also has a personal undefeated streak in progress. Also as an added story line, the two starters also share the same agent. Strasburg has already agreed to a new deal, and it is only a matter of time until Arrieta gets his as well.
