Leake is going to be the fifth starter for early part of the year IMO. Chapman will get stretched out either in extended spring training or with regular work out of the bullpen.
By the time May rolls around, things will probably work themselves out. The Reds were incredibly injury-lucky in their starting rotation last year. Chances are that will not happen again and Reds fans will be thanking their lucky stars the Reds kept a guy like Leake around.
