RHP Josh Collmenter will replace RHP Randall Delgado in the starting rotation on Tuesday, when Delgado will move to the bullpen after giving up nine earned runs in 7 1/3 innings of his first two starts. "Looking at our options, that seems the smartest way to go," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said. "We're going to go with this and see how it works." Collmenter threw 53 pitches in four scoreless innings of relief in a 7-3 victory over San Francisco on Tuesday.

Only this time, in an odd twist, it haunted the San Francisco Giants rather than the Oakland Athletics. The Rockies' bullpen picked up for an injured Anderson with six innings of scoreless relief, completing a three-hit shutout that produced a 1-0 victory over the Giants on Saturday.

Preview: Athletics at Mariners

The offseason addition of free-agent second baseman Robinson Cano was supposed to bolster Seattle’s sagging offense and lead to more victories. The Mariners are doing fine on the victory front with an American League West-leading 6-3 mark entering Saturday’s game against the visiting Oakland Athletics, but Cano has just three RBIs and has yet to homer. Seattle posted a 6-4 victory in Friday’s series opener to halt Oakland’s four-game winning streak.

Preview: Dodgers at Diamondbacks

Wade Miley looks to stabilize the Arizona Diamondbacks starting rotation Saturday when he faces the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers. Miley has been the lone bright spot in the rotation, which will get a new look Monday when Josh Collmenter moves from the bullpen to replace struggling Randall Delgado. The Diamondbacks fell to a disappointing 4-9 on Friday when Adrian Gonzalez homered and drove in five runs and Hyun-Jin Ryu tossed seven shutout innings in the Dodgers’ 6-0 win.

San Francisco Giants - PlayerWatch

1B Brandon Belt was given a vote of confidence just by being in the lineup Friday night in the series opener against the Colorado Rockies. With the Giants facing a left-handed pitcher and C Buster Posey needing a break from his catching responsibilities, manager Bruce Bochy often has moved Posey to first base and sat Belt. But Belt is off to a fast start against lefties this season, having entered Friday's game 6-for-16 (.375 average) and a home run in lefty-lefty matchups. He did have one hit in the 6-5 win, but that was against Rockies RHP Chad Bettis.

Preview: Cubs at Cardinals

No one expects the Chicago Cubs to seriously contend in the tough Central Division, but it doesn't appear they'll be anywhere near the pushover that lost 197 games over the past two seasons. Chicago looks to make it two straight over the Cardinals when they visit St. Louis on Saturday in the second contest of a three-game series. The Cubs on Friday let a two-run lead slip away in the ninth inning before Welington Castillo's three-run homer gave Chicago a 6-3 victory in 11 innings.
