Phillies Set Pitching Rotation for Opening Series vs Braves
Phillies manager Gabe Kapler didn't wait long to name Aaron Nola his Opening Day starter, announcing that the 24-year old will get that honor back on Feb 25.
While Nola was named the Opening Day starter about a month ago, we finally found out who will follow him in the rotation. It will be Nick Pivetta on Friday and Vince Velasquez on Saturday.
With an off day on Sunday, Ben Lively will most likely get the ball on Monday in New York against the Mets, followed by Nola and Pivetta on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Phillies said Jake Arrieta will make his Phillies debut during the home opener against the Marlins on April 5.
