#5 Spot

Over the past couple of weeks, the Red Sox have made several moves that could potentially shore up the back end of their pitching rotation. These guys all have a common mold: guys who have had success in the majors, but recently have have problems with injuries. These players are Aaron Cook, Vicente Padilla, and Carlos Silva. I think that these guys all have potential to be a diamond in the rough, much like Alfredo Aceves was last year. What I'm going to ask for you guys, who are reading this, is who would you put as the #5 starter (assuming they are all healthy at spring training and the Sox acquire nobody else). Personally, I would put my vote towards Vicente Padilla, as he has pitched fairly well in the Rangers' ballpark-- a hitters' paradise. Also, he has been clocked at 95-96 mph in the Nicaraguan Winter League. After him for me would be Aaron Cook, who had a moderate amount of success in Coors Field before his career has been derailed by injuries. Last for me would be Carlos Silva, as I feel his strikeout rates would get bombed in the AL East. However, tell me what you guys think!
