I'd think if they trade Santana you could bring up Duffy (even though he hasnt looked good yet imo) and/or Will Smith to add to the rotation. Davis inevitably will be put in the pen
I think they moved Smith to the pen because they have better prospects for the rotation.
Right now, there will be a lot of candidates for 2014 rotation spots. Shields and Guthrie are givens. After them, you have:
Luke Hochevar -- I KNOW, I know, but I guarantee you that Moore looks at him as a rotation candidate. I think their whole strategy for dealing with Hoch this season is to improve his confidence with runners on base.
And, that's excluding Davis whom you know DM thinks is a starting candidate as well.
