Dash Starting Rotation Announced
In advance of the club’s season opener Friday at Carolina, the Dash have announced their starting rotation to begin the 2012 season.
Friday: RHP Jake Petricka
Saturday: RHP Andre Rienzo
Sunday: LHP Spencer Arroyo
Tuesday: RHP Ryan Buch
Wednesday: RHP Matt Heidenreich
Petricka is the highest-ranked pitching prospect the Dash are likely to receive throughout the season. He checked in at fourth on Baseball America‘s top 30 list for the White Sox.
Both Rienzo and Arroyo looked sharp in the exhibition game yesterday at Kannapolis. Buch had a chance to spend a little time in big league camp in Arizona. Finally, Heidenreich, a former fourth-round pick, will be making his High-A debut with the Dash this season.
If this rotation holds to form, Rienzo will start the home opener for the Dash April 13. Arroyo and Buch will round out that opening series before the club hits the road again.
It’s time for Media Day and the Coaches’ Luncheon. Stay tuned to wsdash.com for more information on that event. We’ll talk to you later!
