We aren't paying 7 mil a year to Broxton to set up.
This shouldn't even be a discussion at this point. Stick with moving Chapman to the rotation and if things don't look good in June/July, move him back to the bullpen for the remainder of the year and do it over again next year.
Relievers are a heck of a lot easier to find than plus starters.
I know Paul Daugherty rubs some people the wrong way, but he just wrote a great article on Chapman with all the reasons he should be a starter. Check it out.
