Well, this is not good. Not sure how our starting rotation is going to look like come April. I don’t speculate as I am uncertain where this puts us. Justin Vargas is pitching today, which could have rotation impacts.
Obviously, Felix, Ian Snell and Ryan Rowland-Smith will be on that 5 man rotation. Doug Fister was rumored, but is having control issues this spring. Thus making Vargas’ progress this spring something of an interest story given our injuries.
Since I am speculating, Lee returns on May 1, Bedard on August 1 and Fister and Vargas are moved to the AAA/bullpen accordingly.
