Some teams have come out and said their starters will have innings limits early on, but several pitchers around the league believe they'll be ready to go sooner than most. Cease registered a disappointing 5.79 ERA over 14 starts as a rookie last year. However, he has been a top prospect in the past so it would be foolish to give up on him already. Yasmani Grandal signing with the organization should be a boost to the entire Chicago pitching staff.
