"This is the second year in a row the Giants have rebuilt their starting rotation on the fly, When last season ended, only Logan Webb was assured of returning in ’22. Rodon joins Alex Cobb as a health-challenged addition, while Wood and DeSclafani decided to stay in San Francisco. The Giants have been one of the most visible examples of a team bucking the trend of getting bad to get good, never slipping into a rebuilding cycle as their 2010s title teams aged out and the players they signed to continue that success didn’t perform to expectations."
