I think Odorizzi still has a little ways to go and would benefit from some more time refining his approach. A little more time at Omaha wouldn't hurt him, especially if the Royals bring in two guys in addition to Guthrie.
I like Paulino, but we can't count on him to ever be healthy. Any starts he gives us are bonus.
