The Arizona Diamondbacks have reached down to bring back one of their best stories of 2015. Right-handed pitcher Zack Godley has been recalled from Double A Mobile and will start tomorrow’s series opener in Wrigley Field against the Chicago Cubs. This will be his third trip to the Majors in 2015.

Godley began 2015 at Single A Visalia before being brought up to Mobile in June. On July 23rd, the 25-year old Godley made his Major League debut by tossing six shutout innings as the D-backs defeated the Milwaukee Brewers by a score of 8-3. Godley would make two additional starts, yielding a total of three earned runs in 18 innings in three outings before being sent to Mobile in order to limit his innings. When he returned in mid-August, he made two relief appearances, giving up two earned runs in 5 2/3 innings. According to manager Chip Hale, Godley will make one more start, next week against the San Francisco Giants before moving to the bullpen. This was reported by Steve Gilbert at mlb.com.
With Godley in the mix, it seems as though the organization may not bring up top pitching prospect Aaron Blair and will instead see if they can get Archie Bradley back onto the mound. Check back here for all the latest September call-ups.
