Evan Grant takes a look at the fifth starter situation now that Gonzalez has been sent down.

Gil Lebreton has a column on A.J. Griffin, who is vying for the fifth starter job.  One thing working against Griffin is that the Rangers make look to have the fifth starter also pitch out of the bullpen, which may not be the ideal situation for a guy who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery that cost him the past two seasons.
