Another possibility for the Sunday starter could be Chase Gardner, assuming he isn't used in relief in the first two games. I'm assuming Gardner will be one of the main guys out of the bullpen this season, and if UConn has close games that they can win in the first two games, than Gardner would come out of the bullpen and see some mound action in those games, precluding him from starting on Sunday. If he isn't used in those games, then he would be a logical candidate to start the Sunday game based on his experience.My best guess for a Sunday starter would be either Kenny Haus or Joe Simeone, although it will probably turn into something of a staff day. Somehow I doubt that a freshman pitcher will get a start on this opening weekend.
