The Reds just announced this:

MINOR LEAGUE GAMES: RHP Aaron Harang will throw in a minor league game on Sunday while RHP Edinson Volquez starts the "A" game against the Phillies...RHP Bronson Arroyo will throw in a minor league game on Monday while RHP Johnny Cueto starts against the Tigers.

Are we getting a stronger indicator of Bakerís leanings toward what might be his starting rotation if Cueto and Volquez continue to pass the test? Or is this just additional work which is common?

Well...the Cueto start will be on FSN Ohio Monday at 1:05 :)

(I got it right that time ;))

I think that's a good sign that both Cueto and Volquez may well be in the rotation to start the year.

After seeing Cueto and Volquez starting against the mlb teams vs. the minors, that was the first flash that came to my mind yet I was still hesitant to accept my thoughts. Baker certainly is giving them serious opportunity. I can't wait to see how this all shakes out.
