Well after seeing this yesterday, I don't think there is any reason he can't be a 2.
I also think Gilbert can be an Ace. Obviously this rotation is unlikely given that you never have everyone work out but this is a nice core that can be supplemented with about $100M of available payroll in 2021.Let’s start from the top. Here are the Mariners’ hardest throwers, as well as where they’d rank among the best in Major League Baseball, according to Statcast.
Gerson Bautista - 98.1 mph - 99th percentile
Connor Sadzeck - 96.5 mph - 91st percentile
Jake Haberer - 95.6 mph - 82nd percentile
Art Warren - 95.4 mph - 81st percentile
George Kiby - 95.1 mph - 77th percentile
