Arizona Diamondbacks SP Braden Shipley gave up four home runs in his major league debut Monday, July 25. The Diamondbacks lost, 7-2, to the Milwaukee Brewers.
Fantasy Tip: This was a typical first performance by a rookie pitcher, and based on what was on display it's best if you give Shipley some space. He may yet blossom into a decent pitcher this season, but the odds are he'll need a bit more seasoning. For now, Shipley should be left alone unless you want to stash him in very deep NL and mixed formats.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Braden Shipley will be promoted from Class AAA Reno to make his MLB debut against the Milwaukee Brewers Monday, July 25. Although he is filling in for injured SP Zack Greinke (oblique), it is uncertain if Shipley will remain in the rotation beyond Monday's game.
Fantasy Tip: The 24-year-old right-hander was 8-5 with a 3.70 ERA in 19 starts for Reno, with 22 walks and 77 strikeouts over 119 1/3 innings. He may be worth picking up in NL-only seasonal leagues but daily fantasy players should avoid using Shipley because of his lack of a track record at the big-league level.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Braden Shipley would be available in a package to acquire Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman. The Diamondbacks are also willing to include one or two more of their top 10 prospects to land Chapman.
Fantasy Tip: It shows that the D-backs are very serious about trading for Chapman, who would remain an elite fantasy closer. Brad Ziegler would lose all of his fantasy value with a return to a setup role. Shipley is 8-8 with a 3.97 ERA and 1.41 WHIP at Class AA Mobile this year, so he's unlikely to be a fantasy factor for teams until at least next season.
