Rockies pitcher David Hale got the start on Thursday and allowed four runs on six hits and two walks across five innings in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks. He struck out three. Hale is simply not a very good pitcher and that proved to be the case yet again here. He now maintains a 6.09 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 12 starts this season. Hale is simply a stop-gap pitcher for the Rockies and he may have trouble finding an opening day roster spot come next year.

The young right-hander has disappointed mightily this season after showing some promise in Atlanta in 2014.

Hale has struggled this season, posting a 6.32 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 68.1 innings this season, but with Yohan Flande set to miss his next start, Hale will get another audition for next year's starting rotation, this time against the Dodgers.

Hale (3-5), has lost five of his last eight starts, with his ERA rising from 4.12 to 6.15.
