Reachable MLB Pitching Milestones In 2017
- Updated: February 15, 2017
Last week we shared the batters that are gearing up for another MLB season and who have the opportunity to continue climbing up the all-time leaders ladder. For this post we look at the pitchers who continue to defy odds and put up the big numbers.
The 2017 season will be another special one in baseball as Huston Street and Francisco Rodriguez look to add their names within the Top 15 all-time in saves, and CC Sabathia looks to jump to 17th all-time in strikeouts.
Even veterans like the ageless Bartolo Colon, who never looks to tire out even at 43 years young, could climb into the Top 50 in wins and strikeouts.
