Barring injuries or an unexpected trade, Mat Latos, Clayton Richard and Harang will form the front end of the rotation and Tim Stauffer is the odds-on favorite to fill the No. 4 spot, although the Padres still speak glowingly of the work he did in the bullpen last season. But the fifth spot is wide open and could fall to a caretaker on Opening Day with top prospects Simon Castro and Casey Kelly potential midseason call-ups. There are ample candidates in left-handers Wade LeBlanc and Cory Luebke and free agent addition Dustin Moseley.
