GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- In recent seasons, the Reds seemed to know who their Opening Day starter would be before Spring Training even started. For example, from 2006-10, it was Aaron Harang. The last two seasons, it was Johnny Cueto.

Reds manager Bryan Price wasn't ready to announce a decision on Saturday. It sounded like it could be Cueto, Mat Latos or Homer Bailey, but for the time being, it's TBA.

"I have an idea of what I want to do," Price said. "I'd like to make sure our guys are healthy. We know Mat has been banged up. Johnny has been the man and continues to be, but we want to make sure he is healthy. Homer has turned his corner I think. Me personally, I love Johnny at the top of our rotation. There are other guys I would be happy with at the top as well."
