As many as 10 pitchers could be competing for the final three spots in the Arizona Diamondbacks' starting rotation. SPs Josh Collmenter and Jeremy Hellickson are expected to win the first two spots in the rotation, although nothing is etched in stone. SPs Chase Anderson, Archie Bradley, Trevor Cahill, Andrew Chafin, Rubby De La Rosa, Randall Delgado, Daniel Hudson, Vidal Nuno, Robbie Ray and Allen Webster are vying for the other spots, although several of these pitchers could wind up in the bullpen or the minor leagues.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter and SP Jeremy Hellickson will likely open the season in the starting rotation, but a wide variety of pitchers are in contention for the final three spots. SP Trevor Cahill and SP Vidal Nuno have the most major league experience. SP's Chase Anderson, Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster, and Robbie Ray received looks last season. Top SP prospect Archie Bradley will probably open the year in the minors. Other candidates include P's Andrew Chafin, Randall Delgado, and Daniel Hudson.

One of the Detroit Tigers' top priorities this offseason is to acquire a left-handed reliever, although they are unlikely to pursue free-agent RP Andrew Miller (Orioles). According to general manager Dave Dombrowski, they could convert one of their young left-handed starters (such as Kyle Lobstein, Robbie Ray or Kyle Ryan) into a reliever or look within the organization for help, although it is more likely that they will sign a free agent.

The Detroit Tigers will promote SP Robbie Ray from Triple-A Toledo to start Tuesday, Aug. 12, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Fantasy Tip: The team is shuffling its rotation thanks to injuries to Anibal Sanchez and Justin Verlander. Ray has seen time at the big-league level before, but he is only worth a look in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues if you need an emergency fantasy replacement.

The Detroit Tigers have placed SP Anibal Sanchez (side) on the 15-day disabled list because of a right pectoralis major strain. The move is retroactive to Saturday, Aug. 9, and he could miss three to four weeks. Sanchez suffered the injury during his start against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, Aug. 8, and was forced to leave the game in the fifth inning due to a strained muscle in his right side. The Tigers will recall SP Robbie Ray to start against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, Aug. 13, in place of Sanchez.
Fantasy Tip: Ray does not have much fantasy value except as a desperation streaming option.
