Rotation Starting to Take Shape

Correia struggled yesterday and Hendricks pitched well yesterday. Deduno and Hermsen both struggled in a "B" game while Myer pitched well. May and DeVrie both got innings out of the bullpen today and yesterday Walters pitched an inning.

The fact that DeVries has made two one inning outings would indicate at the very least he is not high on the list of potential starters. Same with Walters.

So the roation is starting to take shape. Three spots are set. Once Diamond is healthy, there are four spots set. That's what everyone expected going into spring training and nothing has changed that.

But the competition for the 5th spot in the rotation appears to be between Gibson and Hendricks. At least they are at the top of the list. Which makes sense given their potential and minor league performance. Of course there is still a lot of spring training to go.  Perez and Harden were supposed to be under consideration for the rotation once they are healthy, although both seem to be more likely to win spots in the bullpen.

Worley makes his second start today, but here is how things shape up with the rotation after yesterday's game.
