Baker mum on rotation order
GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- The only thing known about the Reds rotation is that Johnny Cueto is the No. 1 starter. As for the other four spots, that is a mystery. Manager Dusty Baker knows the plan, but wasn't sharing on Wednesday morning.

"There's no need to," Baker said. "I've got it figured out. I had it figured out this winter."

The five-man rotation has six contenders. Besides Cueto, there is Mat Latos, Bronson Arroyo, Mike Leake, Homer Bailey and Aroldis Chapman.

"What will change my mind is when we boil it down to five," Baker said. "And God forbid, you hope nobody gets hurt this spring because that would definitely change your mind and change your rotation. That's what changed our rotation last year, especially when Johnny and Homer went down from the very beginning.

"You've always got a Plan A, always. You just hope you don't get to Plan F."
