We've learned today that this week with the opening game of the MLB season starting that Jason Vargas will pitch first followed by Felix Hernandez in game two.

Quote: Manager Eric Wedge added, "These guys are still working their way back, but it's nice to see them break out the way they did. I think everyone is still a little bit fuzzy. King Felix also will start the home opener April 13.

Eric Wedge stated the team opted to flip-flop the two starting arms in order to for Hernandez to get one Cactus League tuneup before the season resumes.

Quote: "It kind of presents our best option of keeping them both as sharp as possible without the ability to have them both pitch in a game," Mariners pitching coach Carl Willis said of the Vargas-Hernandez switch.
