Default What's the roster right now?

Expanding on the other lineup thread, it looks to me like the 25-man roster is nearly set, assuming no other trades:

Starters:
C Flowers or Pierzynski
1B Konerko
2B Beckham
3B Keppinger
SS Ramirez
LF Viciedo
CF De Aza
RF Rios
DH Dunn

SP Sale
SP Peavy
SP Danks
SP Floyd
SP Quintana/Santiago

Bullpen:
Santiago/Quintana
Reed
Thornton
Crain
Jones
? [Septimo/Omogrosso/Axelrod]

Bench:
Flowers/?
Wise
Jordan Danks?
Brent Morel?
?

To sum up: it looks like there's one utility IF spot to be won in ST, and one bullpen spot with three main competitors. For the bullpen, I give Septimo the edge because it balances the pen out at 3 lefties and 3 righties. The IF spot will probably be very much up for grabs, but Angel Sanchez probably has a head start on any competitors. I'm assuming Morel and Jordan Danks will both make the team, since Morel has put in his minor league time already, and Jordan Danks showed a lot of upside in his time with the team in 2012.
If Pierzynski comes back, catchers are set. If not, they will probably acquire a veteran to spell Flowers. I wouldn't mind seeing them go with either Miguel Olivo or Kelly Shoppach.

Thoughts?
