Hopefully Choo can be replaced by Hamilton.
Hopefully Arroyo can be replaced by some combination of Leake/Corcino/Cingrani
I don't look at Masset as needing a replacement, although Ondrusek and possibly Lotzkar or Cingrani could easily replace him (and/or a veteran major leaguer).
Barring major injuries, there really doesn't appear to be any major holes that need to be filled via trade for the next 18+ months. I'd look to extend Latos and possibly Bailey. By the time one or more of the SP is eligible to leave via FA (not until 2015 at the earliest), one or more of Corcino/Cingrani/Stephenson should be more than ready to step in.
Just a thought on this: if Choo performs well, I make the effort to sign him to a 3 year deal (something along the lines of what Victorino got this year, perhaps). Hamilton is the 4th outfielder in 2014, spelling both Ludwick and Choo and also coming in to pinch run. After 2014, Ludwick is gone: slide Choo over to the LF spot and let Hamilton have CF.
