The Diamondbacks want to give their starters an extra day of rest and have elected to start Archie Bradley at Coors Field tomorrow.

Bradley will make his 2nd start in a Dbacks uniform on Monday.

The Diamondbacks will land in Colorado with a different roster than when they took off as they made a move to give their starting rotation a breather. Once top pitching prospect Archie Bradley has had documented struggles in the majors but has been very good in AAA Reno this year.

The move gives the Diamondbacks a 7-man bullpen for tomorrow's game, as reliever Enrique Burgos has been optioned to AAA Reno.

Bradley should be somewhat used to pitching in thin air. Bradley will start Monday, Rubby De La Rosa Tuesday, and Robbie Ray Wednesday in Colorado.
