Spring rotation set
We now have the schedule for the starting candidates (well, most of them) for the first few games:
- Justin Verlander and Zach Miner will pitch Wednesday against the Braves at Joker Marchant Stadium
- Edwin Jackson and Nate Robertson will pitch Thursday against the Nationals in Viera
- Armando Galarraga and Dontrelle Willis will pitch Friday against the Blue Jays in Dunedin
- Jeremy Bonderman will pitch Saturday against the Mets in Lakeland
All of them are expected to pitch two innings apiece.
If you’re trying to project the regular season rotation from there, don’t bother. The pairings are based off of their throwing groups from live BP sessions over the last 4-5 days.
