Hendriks likely to start season in rotation

Scott Baker (elbow) and Jason Marquis (personal) likely won't start the first trip through the rotation, so Liam Hendriks will likely start against Baltimore next Sunday, according to the Pioneer Press. That would allow Nick Blackburn to start the Twins' home opener April 9th against the Angels. Hendriks is 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA this spring.
