Via trade or signing?

Of the possible #5 guys (considering Liriano the #4 man if/when he signs) I would arrange them as Locke, Wilson, McPherson*, Oliver, Leroux. Would be a shame if they were to give up on him as a starter if he can keep the BB’s relatively low without letting him have a go at it in the bigs.

*McPherson would be the top guy had he had a full year last season and more top level exp.

That way, when Liriano is healthy enough to return, they could keep whoever’s performing better in the rotation and send the lesser player to AAA.

The bucco’s finally have depth and aren’t giving out ‘scholarships’ anymore.
