Manning is set to start Tuesday's season opener for Triple-A Toledo, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

This isn't much of a surprise, as Manning is considered the team's top pitching prospect and he's expected to make his MLB debut sometime this summer, so he should headline the staff in Toledo while he's there. There isn't a definitive timeline for the 23-year-old to reach the majors, but he can help his cause by getting off to a hot start for the Mud Hens.
