DUNEDIN, Fla. - Manager John Gibbons offered a glimpse Sunday of the Blue Jays much-debated pitching rotation. He helped fill in some of the gaps when he said the pitching questions remaining are who will be the fifth starter and whether the team will carry seven or eight in the bullpen. Previously GM Alex Anthopoulos had talked of two openings left to fill in a starting rotation that already features R.A. Dickey, Mark Buehrle and Brandon Morrow. A gaggle of pitchers has been competing for the fourth and fifth sports with J.A. Happ, Drew Hutchison and Ricky Romero the leading contenders although Happs back issues had muddied the waters somewhat. Asked Sunday if Happ was the fourth starter with one position still open, Gibbons replied: "Yeah, Im a big Happ fan. I think hes going to have a heck of a year for us and all indications the other day are his backs fine. He threw very well (in a minor league game Friday). That was a big question. "Now if his back flares up, that might be a different story." Hutchison is widely believed to have already pitched his way into the rotation. In three outings this spring, the 23-year-old right-hander has given up three runs in 9 2-3 innings for an ERA of 2.79. He has struck out 16 and walked one. "Hes been pitching great," Gibbons acknowledged. "Arguably the best of anybody in camp." Then he clammed up, returning to his stock response that the lineup will be announced at the end of the spring. "So keep asking. You aint getting nothing," he said devilishly. Gibbons confirmed Dickey will pitch first with left-hander Buehrle third in the rotation. Morrow reportedly will throw fifth, which would put him on the mound for the home opener April 4 against the Yankees. The Jays open March 31 with a four-game series in Tampa. The manager declined comment on Morrow pitching fifth. But he rejected the suggestion that a veteran was needed to handle the pressure of pitching the home opener. "Its a big day but, you know what, if you dont think they can handle that day they probably shouldnt be there." Gibbons also said he had no issue with southpaws Buehrle and Happ pitching back-to-back. "Theyre both left-handers but theyre different type of pitchers," he said. In case a second opinion on the starting rotation is needed, the Jays asked fans via Twitter on Sunday to offer their suggestions. "Who do you think should be included in the @BlueJays Opening Day Pitching Rotation? Send us your 5 pitchers and rank them 1-5," the team tweeted Sunday on its official account. Gibbons confirmed locks in the bullpen are Casey Janssen, Sergio Santos, Brett Cecil, Aaron Loup and Steve Delabar. "Theyre not going anywhere," Gibbons said. "Your other guys will be your middle and long (relief) guys so were covered with our late-inning go-to guys." Pitchers Esmil Rogers, Todd Redmond, Jeremy Jeffress and Dustin McGowan are out of options, meaning the team could lose them if they are sent down. McGowan is expected to be part of the opening bullpen, despite his desire to be a starter. "Theres some pretty good pitchers out there that are out of options and you cant keep them all," said Gibbons. "We also think the guys we cut loose will probably get grabbed," he added. A seven-man bullpen would give the Jays a four-man bench. "Thats the risk you take. If you take that extra bullpen guy, youre shorter on the bench." said Gibbons. "Thats not ideal but it might cover our rotation a little bit, make the pitching staff that much stronger if we go with eight." Despite the options complication, Gibbons insisted the team would take the best 25 players north. Also Sunday, the Jays optioned pitchers Kyle Drabek, Chad Jenkins and Sean Nolin to triple-A Buffalo.

The Ibrox side won their third League Cup game in six days without conceding a goal as they were 3-0 victors at Lowland League side East Stirlingshire.A potentially tricky tie on an awkward artificial pitch was negotiated with relative ease as an early Andy Halliday penalty and Josh Windass first goal for the club had Rangers 2-0 up at the break. Joe Dodoo added a third and although they should have won by more, Warburton is content his men are heading in the right direction.Rangers now play one more pool game against Stranraer on Monday then a friendly with Burnley before they start their league campaign against Hamilton on August 6, live on Sky Sports.

Ive not seen the stats yet but we had a lot of possession.Maybe we could have tested their keeper a bit more, especially in the second half, but we kept trying to do the right thing on a difficult surface against a very willing opponent.You can always talk about scoring more goals but I thought we did a very professional job and now we move on to game four. Andy Halliday converts a penalty to put Rangers ahead at Ochilview I would agree that the longer we get into the season the rustiness will ease off and those chances will go in.dddddddddddd.

Were getting in good shape and hopefully on Monday we can finish off with a positive display.Warburton took heart from the impact Windass and Dodoo - two of his nine summer signings so far - made as Rangers all but assured themselves of a last-16 place. Warburton gave Joe Dodoo his debut at East Stirlingshire and was happy to see the youngster score He added: I was pleased for Josh and Joe. You saw with Josh he was very willing to get forward. He showed real bravery, composure and technique in the first half.Joe gave us some real pace as well, which is what we wanted to add to the squad. Hes very confident in his touch too so Im delighted for him getting his goal. Also See: Dodoo scores in Rangers win Rangers video Rangers fixtures Rangers stats ' ' '
