[Chan Ho Park] learned Tuesday afternoon that those decisions paid off: he had beaten out J.A. Happ for the fifth job in the rotation.

Park went 2-0 with a 2.53 ERA in 21 1/3 innings this spring. He allowed 20 hits, six earned runs, two walks and struck out 25. Opponents hit .244 against him. Happ went 0-0 with a 3.15 ERA in 20 Grapefruit League innings. He allowed 18 hits, seven earned runs, six walks and struck out 14. Opponents hit .240 against him.

Park has not pitched successfully as a starter since 2001 with the Dodgers. He went 78-51 with a 3.74 ERA in 176 starts from 1994-2001, but is 34-34 with a 5.48 ERA in 104 starts from '02-'08. Dubee said Tuesday that Park eased concerns this spring that he could be an effective starter over a six-month season, but pointed out the difference between Spring Training and the regular season.
