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.

The Arizona Diamondbacks are discussing Chicago White Sox SP Jake Peavy, according to a baseball source. Peavy pitched eight seasons with the San Diego Padres under general manager Kevin Towers, who is now the GM of the Diamondbacks. Peavy is owed roughly $5.28 million for the rest of this year and $14.5 million next season. The White Sox are interested in receiving infielders, and the D-backs have 3B Matt Davidson and SS Chris Owings playing at Triple-A Reno. Arizona could also include SP Tyler Skaggs in a package.

The Arizona Diamondbacks will send down SP Tyler Skaggs to Class A Visalia so he can stay on his turn in the rotation during the All-Star break. He's expected to rejoin the big club afterward.
