Santos
Oliver
Delabar
Rogers
Cecil
Jeffress
Happ

Loup in the minors (which sucks, but you only need so many lefties and Loup has options)

Then when Janssen comes back either Happ goes down or Happ goes into the rotation and they figure out what to do with Romero. and Loup would be on standby if Happ isn't in the bullpen (or if Jeffress can't throw a strike)

As unfair as it seems to Loup in this scenario, its better that we have someone perhaps unfairly in the minors (him or Happ) than it is we don't have that depth and end up needing it.
