By Monday, all four of the minor league affiliates will have gone through their five-man rotation once. There have been some changes from the planned rotations, with Casey Sadler skipping his start at Indianapolis to pitch for the Pirates today. Tyler Eppler and Luis Heredia were supposed to be in the Bradenton rotation and Stephen Tarpley was supposed to be pitching for West Virginia now. All three are in Extended Spring Training. With that in mind, lets looks at where the Pirates got the twenty starters that make up the opening week rotations.
