Evan Grant has a blog post up laying out what the rotations will be for each of the Rangers' full-season minor league affiliates.

Interesting collection of arms, with some really intriguing young Latin guys in the Hickory rotation.  The most surprising move is that Kasey Kiker is being dropped back down to high-A, where he'll be in a tandem arrangement with Robbie Erlin at the start of the year.

The Rangers, of course, took Kiker instead of the more highly touted Kyle Drabek in the 2006 draft.  While Kiker is starting the year in low-A, Drabek will be starting the season in the Toronto rotation.
