Baker Out, Liriano In

Minnesota+Twins+Photo+Day+Md46-hhYhewl.jpgThe Twins just announced today that Scott Baker will no longer be slated to pitch on Opening Day (Monday) due to some right shoulder tightness.  Francisco Liriano will move into the April 6 slot, followed by Nick Blackburn, Kevin Slowey, and Glen Perkins.  Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey will make a spot start for Baker, who will only miss one turn in the rotation.

This is probably nothing too serious, it’s just that all teams (more than I have ever seen) are being extremely cautious with their prized young pitchers.  I’ve never seen so many “ace” pitchers not starting on Opening Day in my life!  It should almost be re-named Opening Week!
