Arizona Diamondbacks SP Bronson Arroyo (elbow), who won't throw for 10 days due to a strained ulnar collateral ligament and irritation in the flexor mass in his right elbow, is just hoping he can avoid Tommy John surgery. He is hoping he can return to throwing by the All-Star break. Arroyo said his elbow has bothered him in his last six starts. General manager Kevin Towers said he doesn't think this injury is related to the bone chip that was revealed in an MRI exam during a preseason evaluation.
SPs Zeke Spruill and Mike Bolsinger are both options to replace Arroyo in the starting rotation. SP Archie Bradley (elbow) will not be an option, as he's working his way back from an elbow sprain. Bradley tossed three innings in a rehab start Monday, June 16.
Fantasy Tip: Given Arroyo's age, expect the D-Backs to be cautious with him and give him plenty of time to return to full health. Spruill and Bolsinger are NL-only options, at best.

The Arizona Diamondbacks placed C Miguel Montero (back) on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain Thursday, Aug. 1, and optioned RP Chaz Roe to Triple-A Reno. Montero's DL placement is retroactive to July 29. Also, SP Zeke Spruill and C Tuffy Gosewisch were recalled from Triple-A Reno.
Fantasy Tip: Montero's disappointing season continues. We wouldn't blame you for dropping him in shallow leagues in search of a better backstop. Perhaps Jason Castro? Wil Nieves runs into the main catching duties, and he'll be backed up by Gosewisch.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zeke Spruill will make the start against the Texas Rangers Thursday, Aug. 1.
Fantasy Tip: Spruill's start tomorrow is probably of the spot-start variety. With Ian Kennedy being shipped out, the Snakes will need another starter, though, and Tyler Skaggs is perhaps the best option at the moment. Trevor Cahill (hip) is nearing the end of his rehab assignment, too, and will re-enter the rotation, so Spruill and Skaggs are probably short-term options.
