Description: Arizona is calling up lefthander Tyler Skaggs to pitch Monday against Chicago. SOURCE: Arizona Republic
Insight: Skaggs (2-1, 4.03 ERA) has had mixed results in his five big league appearances this season but the D'Backs will continue to give him chances. Trevor Cahill and Brandon McCarthy aren't expected to come off the DL until next month so Skaggs should have quite a few opportunities to prove himself.

Description: Diamondbacks lefty Tyler Skaggs will start Friday against the Rockies in place of Trevor Cahill, who is on the DL with a bruised hip. SOURCE: Steve Gilbert, MLB.com

Insight: Baseball America ranked Skaggs 12th on its preseason top-100 prospects list. The left-hander has had a rough year at Triple-A, posting a 5.23 ERA, but he does have a 54/17 K/BB in 51 2/3 innings and threw a six-inning, three-hit, no-run, nine-strikeout start against the Rangers on May 27. On potential alone, he should be owned in most leagues.
