Spring rotation set through March 13

Today, Joe Girardi announced the spring training rotation for the first 11 games. Check out the schedule here.

It’s great to see Girardi has paired Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain to pitch in the same games: March 5 vs. Rays and March 10 at Tigers. It doesn’t completely even the playing field, because the lineups they’ll be facing will be changing mid-game as well. Still, it’s the best Girardi can do.

Also note the team is taking it slow with Andy Pettitte because he pitched a lot last year and the extra month of postseason. I’m glad they’re being cautious with him, but I’m not too worried about the lefty. He’s a bulldog.

He’s scheduled to throw a simulated game on March 7 and will face the Nationals on March 12 in his first real game.
