Not called up yet but Blanton gone means he probably will be. Also, Gio might not be ready and is a big risk but he would be my 7th starter instead of Carpenter. I am basically looking for a high risk, potentially high return guy that could be my 5th SP. Carpenter is as big a risk as Gio and that is who I dropped.
