With ESPN's Keith Law reporting Gio Gonzalez is en route from the Oakland Athletics to the Washington Nationals for A.J. Cole, Brad Peacock, Derek Norris and Tom Milone, it appears National League East rotations are getting close to set.

Here are the projections:

Mets: Johan Santana, R.A. Dickey, Jon Niese, Mike Pelfrey, Dillon Gee

Atlanta: Tim Hudson, Jair Jurrjens, Tommy Hanson, Brandon Beachy, Mike Minor (with Julio Teheran and Randall Delgado in waiting, potentially if Jurrjens gets traded)

Miami: Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Ricky Nolasco, Anibal Sanchez, Chris Volstad (with Volstad likely to get displaced by an addition -- potentially Joe Saunders, according to ESPN's Buster Olney)

Philadelphia: Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels, Joe Blanton, Vance Worley (with Dontrelle Willis in bullpen)

Washington: Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann, Gio Gonzalez, Chien-Ming Wang and John Lannan or Ross Detwiler (who is out of options)
