MAR 23, 2014 4:29p ET
Minor, Floyd and Venters will continue their rehabilitation programs, with Minor expected to join the rotation in mid-April, with Floyd sometime in May and Venters in May or June.
The return of Minor should provide a boost to a staff that, without Beachy and Medlen, will open the season with a four-man group of Opening Day starter Julio Teheran, Freddy Garcia, Alex Wood and David Hale. Recently signed Ervin Santana is not expected to be available until April 9 at the earliest.
