"We have more depth through our pitching staff, which is a good thing, right?" Duquette said. "And we have a number of young pitchers on the horizon, in [Kevin] Gausman and [Dylan] Bundy, that could come up during the year and help us. We also have more qualified major league starting pitchers than we have slots. But all those things are good things. So if we have a surplus as perceived by other teams then we could make a trade that could help us in another area."
