Diamondbacks | Benson the favorite to be fifth starter

Nick Piecoro, of The Arizona Republic, reports Arizona Diamondbacks SP Kris Benson threw five solid innings with Triple-A Reno Monday, April 12, and appears to be the favorite to earn the No. 5 rotation spot, which won't be needed until Saturday, April 17. SP Billy Buckner, the other candidate, gave up seven runs and 10 hits with Reno Sunday, April 11. Buckner is also coming off a poor spring performance. RP Leo Rosales is the most likely candidate to be sent down to make room for the fifth starter.
