RHP Jose Fernandez

RHP Nathan Eovaldi

RHP Henderson Alvarez

RHP Jacob Turner

RHP Tom Koehler

Two rotation spots are up for grabs. At age 21, Fernandez, the 2013 NL Rookie of the Year, is the ace on a rotation lacking in depth. Alvarez (5-6, 3.99 in 2013) ended the season with a no-hitter, but he and Eovaldi (4-6, 3.99) need to make strides after inconsistent seasons. All three are locks. After that, Koehler and Turner are the leading candidates for the final spots. Koehler, though, could open the season as a long reliever.

LHPs Brian Flynn and Brad Hand are options, along with veteran RHP Kevin Slowey, a non-roster invitee, to plug gaps if Turner and Koehler struggle this spring.

PROJECTED BULLPEN:

RHP Steve Cishek (closer)

RHP A.J. Ramos

LHP Mike Dunn

RHP Carlos Marmol

RHP Carter Capps

RHP Arquimedes Caminero or RHP Kevin Slowey

LHP Dan Jennings

Cishek (34-for-36 in save chances last year) is firmly in place as the closer, with Ramos and Dunn setting up. Marmol, who threw 96 mph in the Caribbean Series, will compete for the setup role, but he needs to prove his control issues are behind him. Capps is the fourth lock. Two spots are up for grabs, with candidates including Slowey in a long-relief role, Jennings amd Caminero.
