Keyvius Sampson is the starter on opening day for the TinCaps.
The right-hander went 3-3 with a 3.56 ERA for San Diego's short-season team in Eugene, Ore. He went 3-0 with a 1.87 ERA in his first seven starts. His last three games, he went 0-3 with a 9.64 ERA.
Sampson was a fourth-round draft pick in 2009 out of high school. He committed to Florida State before signing with the San Diego.
The remainder of Fort Wayne's rotation sets up like this: right-handers Zach Cates, Matt Branham and Adys Portillo and then lefty Andrew Werner.
