How the A's 2017 Starting Pitching Rotation is Shaping Up

The A's rotation is shaping up this spring to present some very good surprises for the rest of the leagues here is why.
The #1 spot, with the lat injury to Sonny Gray, Kendall Gravamen will assume the top spot of the rotation, he is on the up-rise in young career, he is talented with a nasty sinker and will be competitive in that #1 spot
The #2 spot, is another young and very talented kid by the name of Sean Menana, like Gravemen he is on the upswing to a promising career, he has ample ability to make batters miss with his plus fastball, slider and change up,
The #3 spot, is the best of them all, which is a kid by the name of Jharel Cotton, so remember this name because before too long he will also be known as one of the best pitchers in all of baseball, a 24yrs with a awesome change up he going to make big waves real fast, you watch and see!           

The #4 and #5 spot, the bottom half of the A's rotation is where the A's can thrive or wallow, there are 3 pitchers here that are talented by have not put thing together for whatever reason (mainly injury) they are , Andrew Triggs, Raul Alcantara and  Jesse Hahn. 
 That how the top 5 spots will go to begin the season (barring trade or injury) until the heath of Sonny Gray, Daniel Mengden,Chris Bassitt and hot prospect Daniel Gossett which may change thing later in the year
