Yesterday we found out that the Arizona Diamondbacks sent Zack Godley to Double A Mobile and brought up Allen Webster from Triple A Reno. Today, Steve Gilbert tweeted out that Chase Anderson will make his return to the rotation after a stint on the 15-day disabled list. Anderson was shelved on July 19th with triceps inflammation. He had just endured his worst outing of the season, giving up ten hits in only 3 2/3 innings in an 8-4 loss to the San Francisco Giants.

For roughly the first two months of the season, the right-handed Anderson was the Snakes’ best pitcher. After his June 17th start, his ERA stood at 2.84 in 79 1/3 innings. Anderson’s last five starts before the DL stay were less than encouraging. In 25 2/3 innings he gave up 26 earned runs on 34 hits. For the season, Anderson is 4-4 with an ERA of 4.37 in 18 games started. He has thrown 105 innings in 2015 after throwing 155 between the Minors and the D’backs in 2014.
For now, we do not have a corresponding move to Anderson’s activation. Check back with venomstrikes and our Twitter feed to find out who should be making travel arrangements.
