Cactus Notes: Lopez to start spring opener

MESA, Ariz.–Manager Dale Sveum announced today that Rodrigo Lopez will start the Cactus League opener on Sunday versus the Oakland A’s. He’ll be followed in the rotation by Ryan Dempster on March 5, also against the A’s, and Matt Garza on March 6 against the Rockies.

Although Dempster was the Cubs’ Opening Day starter in 2011, Sveum said not to read too much into that pitching order.

“We’ll make that decision in the middle [of Spring Training],” Sveum said. “It’s set up to where we’re good with whatever we decide.”
