Arizona Diamondbacks Need to Promote Bullpen Arms

The 25-year old Stites has appeared on 42 games for the Snakes over the past two years. He has been in Arizona for two short stints in 2015 after starting off the year on the disabled list. In 20 games at Reno, Stites is 1-1 with a 4.09 ERA and three saves. His last two appearances for the Aces were not very good as he was tagged for seven runs on seven hits in only an inning and a third. Currently, the right-hander is on the 7-day DL, effective date August 14th. When Stites does get the call again, I am sure he hopes it will be for good.
