Lester will get the ball in Miami on March 29 when the season goes up.

The remainder of the rotation has yet to be announced, but the current Spring Training rotation is as follows: Lester, Kyle Hendricks, Yu Darvish, Jose Quintana.

If everyone stays in healthy condition, the order will remain the same as the Cubs head into the season with Hendricks taking game two, Darvish game three, Quintana game four, all against the Marlins.

Chatwood would then make his debut in Cincinnati for game five.
