The rotation will most likely be Takayuki Kishi, Kazuhisa Makita, Ryoma Nogami, Yusei KIkuchi, Greg Reynolds, and Yosuke Okamoto.  However, the coaches also want Shota Takekuma to push for a spot and be ready in case they need him.  They could give him the team's first exhibition game start of the season on the 22nd against Softbank.  Source: Sponichi 2/18/2014
