"In Burnes, Woodruff, and Peralta, the Brewers have a top three that is unusual in today’s game, with so many pitchers injured, with so many live arms shunted into bullpen roles. It was just three years ago, Peralta’s rookie season, that the Brewers got to within a game of the NL pennant with a rotation that was a bit of an afterthought, placeholders to get the game to a lockdown bullpen. Now, the team’s rotation is the biggest reason for its success."
