Late decision by the Diamondbacks, switching up their starting pitchers for this game. So it'll be Nuño in the first game, with Andrew Chafin making his major-league debut in the second game of the double-header. There goes 500 finely-crafted words, speaking about how the game would have pitted two first-round Diamondbacks' picks from the 2011 draft against each other. Nah, just kidding: hadn't written anything. There are clearly times as a writer when putting stuff off works to your advantage. Nuno will instead be making his seventh attempt to grab his first victory as a D-back. Dunno anything about the Cleveland starter. And I will cut anyone who says otherwise.
No apparent word on the Diamondbacks calling up a 26th man, as they could for the unscheduled double-header, so it looks like they're going with the normal arms. Makes some sense as the bullpen should be well rested, after Monday's scheduled off-day and Tuesday's unscheduled one. And they probably should be, because Nuño's last five starts have averaged only 5.1 innings. Interestingly, the D-backs have swapped round Trumbo and Pacheco for the re-run from yesterday, with Trumbo the DH and Pacheco starting at first-base. Be curious to see if this is also retained for the night-cap.
The good news is, chance of rain is very much reduced today in Cleveland: 20% early on, declining to only 10% by the time we get to the nightcap. Both games are on Fox Sports Arizona, so get a cup of coffee and a sandwich, and get ready to settle down on the couch for a full day of Diamondbacks' baseball.
