The woes of the Arizona Diamondbacks have not been contained to the field. Pitcher Chase Anderson was placed on the 15-day disabled list with what is being called right triceps inflammation, according to Jake Rill at mlb.com. Anderson said that he was feeling “little fatigued in that area”. The plan is for him to rest for a week before beginning to throw a ball. The 27-year old right-hander was having a fine season up until about mid-June. Over his last five starts, Anderson allowed 26 earned runs in 31 2/3 innings, including his shortest outing Friday night in which he lasted just 3 2/3 innings, surrendering seven runs on ten hits.

Taking his place on the roster is Danny Dorn, up for his third tour with the D’backs in 2015. Dorn has five hits in 32 at-bats and was last sent down to Triple A Reno on July 4th when the Snakes called up Oscar Hernandez and activated Patrick Corbin. While with the Aces this year, Dorn was hitting a ridiculous .434 in 199 plate appearances.

The D’backs made another roster move in sending down Enrique Burgos and recalling Matt Stites. The hard-throwing Burgos struggled in his last two appearances, allowing four runs on six hits in just an inning of work. His ERA is 5.04 in 22 appearances. Stites was recalled for the second time this season. He was unscored upon in his only other two Major League outings this year. While with Reno, he had a 1.88 ERA in 13 games with eight strikeouts and nine walks in 14 1/3 innings.
