D-Backs SP Chase Anderson may make one more rehab start
After throwing four innings during a rehab outing in the minors Sunday,
Anderson was expected to replace Zack Godley in the rotation, but Hale said he is considering using a six-man rotation.
"That would help that, just get guys extra days," Hale said. "With [Patrick Corbin] coming back from Tommy John and all our young guys starting to pile up the innings. But it's tough to do that with still keeping seven bullpen guys. We would probably have to lose a position player. That's a very tough decision to make."

Plenty of winners and losers at the trade deadline, including Braves new third baseman Hector Olivera. Scott White looks at some of the players whose Fantasy value has changed the most.
They aren't the biggest names, but the trades of Dan Haren and Ben Revere could have an impact for Fantasy players yet.
The Mets got the big bat they've been coveting, and now they have some questions to sort out in their outfield that could have Fantasy implications.
Gerardo Parra has been very good this season, but his role has limited his Fantasy appeal somewhat. That should change in Baltimore, Chris Towers says at the Fantasy Baseball Today blog.
Moving from one of the worst pitcher's parks to one of the best could keep Mike Leake on the Fantasy radar all the way down the stretch.
