Cubs manager Dale Sveum announced that the starting rotation at the start of the season will be (in the following order):
Jeff Samardzija, Edwin Jackson, Travis Wood, Scott Feldman and Carlos Villanueva. Once Matt Garza and Scott Baker are healthy, they are both expected to join the starting rotation. This means that the "Shark" will pitch when the Cubs open their season on the road in Pittsburgh on April 1st. Edwin Jackson will get the call for the Home Opener at Wrigley Field on April 8th.
