Torre had already said Dickey would pitch the opener in Pool D on Friday night, but he wanted to see how Vogelsong came out of a spring appearance for the Giants before finalizing the rest.
Vogelsong will start Saturday against Italy. That allows Holland, a left-hander, to face a Canadian lineup stocked with left-handed hitters on Sunday.
Torre, an MLB executive vice president, said he'll err on the side of caution when it comes to pitch counts. WBC rules limit starters to 65 pitches in opening-round games.
