As of now I think it's

Hudson
Hanson
Jurrjens
Beachy
Minor

The rest of the youngsters will have to wait for an injury.

I believe SwaggerJackers' list is correct to start the season with 1 through 4 almost a lock if healthy. Minor will have to flame or Jurrjens will have to be traded before the prospects can secure a spot in the rotation.

Word is Tim Hudson may not be ready to start the season. So there's that.

I'm keeping a close eye on Minor. He might be a guy I end up with on a few teams

I agree with the proposed rotation set forth below. Lots can change in the spring, but those are the five I expect to start the season. Teheran may light it up, and Minor may falter, but that's all to be determined.

Yes, but those youngsters will probably get a shot since the rotation is hardly the Rock of Gibraltar.

You've got Hudson (old), Jurrjens (likes to get hurt), Hanson (wonky shoulder) and even Beachy (I think he strained his oblique last year?), so you've got a fairly good chance that one or more of these guys are going to go down at some point.

Thus, if you have a bench, I'd think about backin' the truck up on those young Braves whippersnappers.
