The injury bug is sweeping through Diamondbacks nation and it is getting a very discouraging.
Between Geoff Blum and Chris Young (who are also on the DL) and Justin Upton (who probably should be) – this is becoming a bit of an epidemic.
In the corresponding roster move, the Dbacks have called up Jonathan Albaladejo from Reno – essentially using someone on the 40-man roster to add depth to the bullpen – likely for use in long relief or mop-up duty if the need arises.
Since it only makes sense that the Diamondbacks are going to have to replace a starting pitcher with another starting pitcher… At the moment, (according to Jack Magruder, via twitter) Wade Miley might be a candidate to take over the rotation spot. But, baseball is more fun with speculation.
So, this is the time to speculate as to which Dback pitching prospect is going to get the call.
Let’s have at it, folks. Check out the poll on the sidebar and weigh in on who might be coming up to fill in Daniel Hudson’s spot.
