PER Greg Johns blog over at MLBlogs.com today we've learned that skipper Eric Wedge has announced his starting rotation. The final rotation.

Wedge said his five-man rotation will be Felix Hernandez, Jason Vargas, Hector Noesi, Blake Beavan and Kevin Millwood.

Wedge said Noesi will start the first exhibition game in Japan on Monday, with Iwakuma starting the second game.

Hernandez and Vargas will pitch the two regular season games in Tokyo.

Quote: Johns states "Putting Iwakuma in the bullpen allowed the Mariners to keep Millwood after a strong spring by the 37-year-old." Wedge said he wouldn’t discuss bullpen or position player decisions until Thursday.

Here's a capsule look at the five starters, with links to their player/profile pages. (Click player name)
