Lackey starting the season on the d.l.

It was originally reported that John Lackey's forearm soreness was a relatively minor matter, and he was just going to skip today's start.

Instead, however, word now is that he's starting the season on the disabled list, because of inflammation in his elbow, and Lewis Yocum is coming in to review his MRI.

The Angels now have an Opening Day rotation of Saunders/Weaver/Moseley/Adenhart/Loux.  Compare that to the Rangers Opening Day rotation of Millwood/Padilla/McCarthy/Harrison/Benson or Feldman.
