We'll see how he turns out. I don't think the organization views him as untouchable as it was rumored that they would move him for the right deal, but I'd have to imagine it would have to be something that would be worth while.
I would think whoever loses out in the battle for the 5th starter spot-or the 4th and 5th spots if Garcia is not ready or has a setback- would either be used as trade bait or moved to the bullpen. Kelly has more upside then Lynn does at this point, with Rosenthal probably having more then Kelly and maybe at the same level as Shelby.
