Chapman starts the season in AAA starting. Once ready, he comes up and Leake goes down. Once Chapman nears his innings limit (or just to limit his innings), bring up Leake as needed...rinse and repeat.
If Masset isn't ready, he goes to the DL and one of the other RP options comes up.
I really don't see why this is so complicated.
There is no chance Chapman goes to AAA. None.
I would bet that Chapman starts in the bullpen and comes to the rotation some time in June.
