Given Brewer was re-assigned to Reno this morning, not sure we'll see him, but I'd imagine they'll be aiming to get Delgado through five innings, then let the first four relievers named above work an inning each. This was originally slated to be started by Bronson Arroyo, but he was scratched last night with what the team says is "back stiffness." It probably is nothing, but considering he was signed largely (almost entirely, some might say) for his proven durability, it doesn't exactly feel like a great omen for Arroyo to be skipped already, at his second pre-season outing. Still, we have rotation depth, so even if the worst happens, it shouldn't have much impact.
