This question would’ve been more crucial to answer if it was asked a couple of weeks ago, when Chase Anderson was the most stable member of the Dbacks starting rotation. Anderson was placed on the 15-Day DL last night and there hasn’t been a replacement named in the rotation yet. With Anderson’s injury, only Rubby De La Rosa and Jeremy Hellickson remain as the starters who have appeared in each of their scheduled games this season.
On June 17th against the Los Angeles Angels, Anderson collected his third win of the season and finished the game with a 2.84 ERA. In the next month, Anderson would go 1-3 and his ERA has only risen at a high rate since that game. Currently, he’s 4-4 with a 4.37 ERA on the season. It figures to be an ideal time for a break. Who will be able to replace him in the rotation? There are some options.
