    Per Fay:

    Rotation: It's set

    It's no coincidence that the Reds are pitching in the following order:

    Aaron Harang
    Bronson Arroyo
    Johnny Cueto
    Josh Fogg
    Edinson Volquez

    Dusty Baker wouldn't quite say it, but that's how the rotation will line up for the start of the season.

    "It's not set," Baker said. "We've still got some action. It's pretty set, except for that fifth spot. I hate to tell young kids that they're there too soon. Then if something happens, you've got to go back on your word. You want to keep them motivated and driven through the end of spring training."

    Volquez pitched only two innings Thursday in relief of Homer Bailey because Volquez was pitching on short rest.

    "(We did that) in order to get in sync for the rotation," Baker said. "Fogg did the same thing the last time. We figured Homer could handle starting more than coming out of the pen. It takes him a long time to warm-up."

    Matt Belisle is out of the picture because of a sore forearm.

    "He's going to throw today," Baker said. "He's falling behind."

    That means Harang, Arroyo, Cueto, Fogg, Volquez and Bailey are the only healthy starters still in the mix. Bailey could theoretically move into Fogg's or Volquez's spot.


    Bailey still has an outside chance of making the rotation over Fogg, but it is a long shot.

    Anyone heard how Randy Johnson is doing ?
    Will he be in rotation from beginning ?
    If so, we could be looking at Johnson vs Cueto in game 3 .
