Masterson and Lynn (and then dump Lynn after a few months as his splits are scary).

Kuroda (straight-up reliable, with no eye-popping numbers)
Buchholz (if he could go 200IP, he'd be on top)
Masterson
Lynn

Thoughts, please:

2014 Projections 32 32 205.0 50 147 14 0 0 3.82 1.23 6.45 KURODA 3

2014 Projections 33 33 212.0 82 184 13 0 0 3.95 1.33 7.81 MASTERSON

2014 Projections 28 28 186.0 64 140 14 0 0 3.82 1.29 6.77 BUCHHOLZ

2014 Projections 31 31 176.0 68 168 12 0 0 3.84 1.34 8.59 LYNN

I give the slight edge to Kuroda since his team's better it might give him a few more wins, Masterson will give you more strikeouts though if that's what you want

Masterson
Kuroda
Lynn
Buchholz

The improvements Masterson made last year were pretty legit. He's a high groundball pitcher who has benefitted from throwing a few more sliders (and upping that K rate).

Even with a slight correction, Kuroda should post great ratios for what you're paying for. Lynn is a good source for strikeouts but he needs to avoid the big innings or else, his ratios won't be any better than they were in his first two seasons. Buchholz carries more upside than Kuroda and Lynn, although he carries durability and regression concerns.

Buchholz is easily the top guy of the group if he can pitch a full season. If you don't trust him to stay healthy then go with Masterson.

Masterson is the best bet IMO. Lynn seems to fade as the year goes on so I'd look to trade him mid-season if you can get something good. Kuroda is meh. I don't trust Bucholz to stay healthy all year.
