Quintana / Santiago
I don't trust Quintana yet. I feel the same about him as I felt about Humber coming into 2012.
I'm in this camp as well. I'd like to see a mid-rotation veteran added in the likely event Peavy's price is too high.
There are questions about whether Quintana can duplicate his success, but I also don't see why we should be penciling Santiago into the rotation on the basis of one dominant start against a hopeless Cleveland team at the end of the season.
I think Santiago is a useful pitcher. He's been used in a number of different roles, but I'm not sure yet what the right spot is for him. I do know that he's not a closer. After that, it's up for debate.
