Re: Mike Leake's role in 2013
The Reds could work Leake and Chapman as a tandem. Take every other start and then work long relief in between. Or Leake could start in the rotation with Chapman working long relief in the bullpen. If Chapman successfully stretches himself out during the first half of the season then he could step into a rotation slot in the second half (when one might open for health reasons).
One thing about Leake, he'll be highly motivated in 2013. He's going to have to fight for his job every time he takes the mound.
