I also have to think that Bush would get tabbed for a starter spot if he sticks with the organization. He's never been a bullpen guy for an extended period of time. Meanwhile, if Fangraphs' stats for the Mexican League is to be trusted, Vargas has logged a ton of bullpen innings over the last 4ish years. I could see:

Rotation
Happ
Jenkins
Germano
Bush
Ortiz

Bullpen
Vargas
Lincoln
Crawford
Beck
Schwimer
Carreno
Loup

and let's just pretend Moscoso doesn't make it through waivers.

I really think Carreno has some ML potential as a late-innings arm.
I'd definitely expect Carreno and Crawford to pitch in AA. Jenkins too perhaps. Loup too. It might be better for the legit prospects to pitch in AA too, that's where most of the talent is anyways.

A lot of the pitchers we picked up through waivers will likely pitch in AAA. There is certainly depth AA has managed to build up in AAA and AA despite trades and injuries.
