The Opening Day starters are beginning to be named which means we are super close to Opening Day and that makes us really happy. So far we have Jose Quintana starting for the White Sox, Marco Estrada for the Blue Jays, Edinson Volquez for the Marlins, and so on.

On the Agenda
Carlos Ro-done…not so much
Okay, before you start hopping on the worry bus, at this moment in time it’s just an MRI on his biceps and it came back clean.
The good news so far is that the Sox “don’t seem to think he has any structural damage,” but the bad news means he could miss his first couple of starts (or maybe not after some reports say otherwise) after already anticipating a bigger workload for the 24-year-old who has a 200 ADP rating.
Rodon finished his 2016 campaign tossing a 4.04 ERA with a 9.16 K/9 Ratio in 165 innings.
We already knew J.D. Martinez’s Opening Day status was in question, but now it’s official.
The Detroit outfielder is now out for 3-4 weeks after being diagnosed with a “sprained Lisfranc ligament in his right food,” according to Chris McCosky.
He’s coming off of an abbreviated season playing in just 120 games when he battled injury so it seems like Deja Vu all over again for the former All-Star.
Steven Moya is looking like the starter in right field at the moment. Eric Longenhagen scribed about Moya who is listed as a top-19 prospect in the system saying he “is still on this list, but the clock is ticking on the bat-to-ball skills.”
The “No” has nothing to do with his playing abilities or anything like that.
