Today's minor league notes:
▪ Drew Sutton, Nate Spears, Blake Maxwell, Jason Rice, and Dan Butler will travel with the big club for tomorrow's game at Houston. Josh Beckett, Jonathan Papelbon, Dennys Reyes, Bobby Jenks, and Daniel Bard are slated to pitch in the game.
▪ Alex Speier reports that the Pawtucket rotation will likely be Alfredo Aceves, Andrew Miller, Brandon Duckworth, Matt Fox, and Kyle Weiland, with Felix Doubront set to join the rotation in mid-April. That could leave veteran starters Lenny DiNardo and/or Adam Mills on the outside looking in.
▪ Elizabeth Dreeson tweets that Brandon Workman and Chris Hernandez are likely to start the season in Low-A Greenville. That could mean a promotion to High-A Salem for Ryan Pressly.
