PORT CHARLOTTE - Manager Joe Maddon said this morning he’ll start using is frontline pitchers on Saturday, but he wasn’t ready to announce a schedule.

Between now and then, the spring training starters will be Jason Hammel today, Wade Davis tomorrow, Jeff Niemann Wednesday and Carlos Hernandez on Friday. Thursday is an off-day.

Maddon also said he’d like to get first baseman Carlos Pena, who underwent surgery in January to repair an abdominal muscle tear, in a game “by Friday if possible.”
