Early in the movie it seemed Sideswipe was the new 2nd in command as well, he was the last to be summoned by NEST before Optimus and when he said "Clear a path!" everyone did. He was also right behind Optimus going into the autobot hangar as well.
Its a shame they didnt expand on all of this.
They called Sideswipe in last because he's the badass. The others couldn't handle Sideways so they needed him to get it done.
I'm pretty sure Ironhide's second-in-command. Followed by Ratchet. But that could change if they decide to Bring in Ultra Magnus and/or Prowl.
