The Five Spot?

Who takes the Five Spot this season?

I believe it's James' to lose but not by much, if the shoulder injury flares up or he strings together a few bad starts, he could start in the minors.

Looks like he'll need to catch major fire...


James, 26, gave up 32 homers in 161 1/3 innings last season, the highest rate per nine innings (1.68) by any major leaguer who pitched at least 160. He had a 6.02 ERA and 15 homers allowed in 44 2/3 innings over his final nine starts, with a 15-day disabled list stint for a sore shoulder.

Looks like James will begin the season in AAA...
