AL East SP Projections

The AL East is known for it’s big bats, but there is plenty of good pitching to go around too. Jon Lester reigns supreme as C.C. starts to slow down. David Price, who goes about 10 picks after C.C., will outpitch him too. The division also plays hosts to some quality sleeper picks in Jeremy Hellickson, Brian Matsuz and my personal favorite so far, Brandon Morrow. Make the jump for some American League East Starting Pitcher projections.
