That leaves Porcello and Drew Smyly as candidates for the last opening.
Porcello is a seasoned veteran with a $5.1 million contract - but he just turned 24 last month. That puts the right-hander in an unusual position with spring training coming up. There's a sense he could be traded at any moment.
Porcello went 10-12 with a 4.59 ERA last year, and he was not in the postseason rotation.
