I'd be ok if Oliver ends up being the 5th starter.
I think the top 4 are set at:
Oliver would make a lot of sense (being a lefty).

I don't think Locke will get the job though as I think this is how the offseason will play out.- Pirates resign Jason Grilli- Hanrahan gets traded to Detroit for prospects. The Tigers are likely waiting to see what happens with Anibal Sanchez and after that will focus on a closer.- The Dodgers sign a free agent pitcher. Chris Capuano is then traded to the Pirates for Alex Presley or a reserve player/low level prospect- Justin Wilson goes back down to AAA as they continue to use him as a starter and Oliver pitches out of the bullpen as a LOOGY. Locke is used as the 6th man in the rotation. Giving the team 3 lefty bullpen arms for matchupsHere is how I think the pitching staff breaks downStarters- AJ Burnett- Wandy Rodriguez- James McDonald- Chris Capuano- Kyle McPhersonBullpen- Jason Grilli- Bryan Morris- Jared Hughes- Tony Watson- Andy Oliver- Jeff Locke- Competition between everyone else for the last spot

His 2014 option he can decline as he will make more money in arbitration. So unless he goes to the minors this year he will get his 3 years of arbitration like everyone else from 2014-2016. The chart does not assign salaries for arbitration numbers or for minimum salary players as those are not guaranteed in the payroll as the team could choose to non tender the player or not use that particular 0-3 player minimum salary player although he would likely just be replaced by another minimum salary player
