I don't believe he is on the 40-man. But I think Happ may start the year on the DL. Stroman isn't ready. And if Redmond and Esmil struggle trying to get that 5th spot and Romero continues to pitch well, he'll have a shot. I don't think he's a favorite or anything, but he's been given a fair shot in spring.
