Crain should be back next week, meaning one of Septimo, Omogrosso or Martinez can go back to AAA.
If Floyd has a short DL stint (retro-active to his last start before the break, so maybe only miss one start?) when he returns, Axelrod can head to the bullpen and one of the others mentioned above can also go to AAA.
Looks like a whole different rotation and bullpen at that point, and that assumes Danks stays out.
In a matter of a week, could look like a very different pitching staff.
