Fort Wayne set its rotation for the start of the season. Cody Hebner has been named the starting pitcher for Thursday's opener against Lake County. Hebner went 2-2 with a 3.35 ERA last year at San Diego's short-season A team in Eugene, Ore.
The rest of the rotation shakes out as follows: Frank Garces, Adys Portillo, Joe Ross and Matthew Wisler. Fort Wayne's "piggy-back" pitchers (guys who will pitch every four days to stay on a routine) are Justin Hancock and Michael Kelly.
Daniel Sarria is the closer to begin the season.
