That would keep everybody on a normal rotation (I don't want to take starts away from Cueto and Latos), ease Chapman in and take advantage of Leake's ability to hit in a long relief role.
I like the idea of this. It serves a number of purposes at once. Why not platoon the fifth starter spot in the same game until some one earns it outright.
It keeps innings down and provided a big change of pace.
