Why Axelrod, when there are two guys ahead of him on the depth chart that are a lot better?

Who would that be? The only one I can think of is Santiago. Is he stretched out?

Well, I'm including Quintana, since he and Santiago are battling for that 5th starter role. I don't understand why you wouldn't start those two since it's a complete unknown when Danks will be able to be back and effective.

Oh, I was assuming Quintana was the 5th guy in the rotation with Danks healthy. With Danks on the DL, I was thinking Quintana gets bumped up to #4, and Axelrod/Santiago/whomever battles it out for the fifth slot.

A few people, including Cooper if I recall correctly (I could be wrong), have said that it is and has been Quintana's job to lose. He's pitched to a 1.35 ERA this spring, so I don't forsee that changing.

Axelrod has been good thus far as well. Santiago has had some control issues, although I don't know how much that pertains to consistently working on breaking stuff.

I guess my biggest issue is the extensive talent gap between the two. I know in limited numbers Axelrod's had some success, but I really don't see him sticking on a major league roster with what he brings.
