Interesting stuff from tonight's line-up, with Josh Collmenter being listed as a bullpen arm. Putting together the pieces, it seems that Patrick Corbin is being recalled from Reno to take Collmenter's spot on the rotation, Josh goes back to being long-relief in the bullpen, and someone - could be new bod Brad Bergesen - being odd reliever out. We'll have more on this tomorrow, when an actual roster move is announced. New D-back Matt Albers is apparently on his way to Los Angeles, but no word yet as to whether he'll be here in time for the game, or if we'll just have to play a relief arm short for tonight.

Line-up after the jump, soco subbing for BattleMoses on the recap.

  1. Chris Young CF
  2. Aaron Hill 2B
  3. Jason Kubel LF
  4. Paul Goldschmidt 1B
  5. Justin Upton RF
  6. Miguel Montero C
  7. Chris Johnson 3B
  8. Stephen Drew SS
  9. Wade Miley P

Man, I just casually put Kelly Johnson in the line-up rather than Chris. Fortunately, I realized that meant we had two second-basemen, which is probably overdoing the infield shift a little. Chris does have a bit to live up to, but I suspect last night's slam will probably give him a little breathing room before everyone starts ragging on him again. Still, he's probably keen for Albers to get there, so CJ is no longer the shortest-tenured Diamondback. Otherwise, this looks a severely unchanged roster from last night.

Elsewhere, we'll obviously be keeping an eye on the Mets-Giants game, in which Harvey goes up against Lincecum, which sounds like an interesting match-up. I'll be following both games on my phone, as we're heading for the SnakePitette's to celebrate Mrs. SnakePit's birthday in a bit. Be nice to come home 2.5 games out...
