    • Shipley was called up from Triple-A Reno and will start Monday in Milwaukee. Shipley no longer looks like a potential No. 1 or No. 2 starter, which was the presumed upside when the Diamondbacks took him with the No. 15 pick in the 2013 draft. However, he has turned into a very solid contact-oriented pitcher in the difficult conditions of the Pacific Coast League, posting a 3.70 ERA and 1.28 WHIP despite just a 15.5 percent strikeout rate. The Brewers have been a bottom-two offense in baseball over the last month (by wOBA and wRC+) so Shipley could have immediate success Monday. If he pitches well, there's a chance the Diamondbacks could keep him in the rotation over Zack Godley once Zack Greinke (oblique) returns next month.

    • Shipley pitched 5.1 innings, allowing six runs, eight hits and four walks while striking out four en route to losing his MLB debut Monday against the Brewers. Five of the six runs Shipley allowed came via the longball. He gave up solo shots in the first and third innings, but managed to battle his way into the bottom of the sixth with the score tied 3-3. However, the wheels fell off in that frame when Shipley dished out two singles before surrendering a fatal three-run home to Brewers catcher, and .178 hitter, Martin Maldonado. A former first-round pick, Shipley hasn't quite developed as quickly as Arizona had hoped when they took him with the No. 15 pick in the 2013 draft. He had a favorable matchup to start his MLB career, but his lackluster performance may have earned him a trip back to the minors instead of a second go-round.

    • Shipley will start Monday against the Brewers, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. All signs pointed to Shipley making his major league debut in Milwaukee, as he was scratched from his scheduled start for Triple-A Reno on Sunday. A first-round pick in 2013 and the top prospect in the Diamondbacks' organization, Shipley has gone 8-5 with a 3.70 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 77:22 K:BB in 19 starts (119.1 innings) for Triple-A Reno this season. His biggest step forward has been with his control, as Shipley has shaved his BB/9 to 1.7 from 3.2 at Double-A Mobile a year ago.

    • Shipley could make his first major league start on Monday as the Diamondbacks are looking to promote a pitcher from Triple-A Reno, Jack Magruder of fanragsports.com reports. Manager Chip Hale didn't mention Shipley's name, but Monday would put him on six days rest from his last start. Shipley is coming off what could have been his best start of the season on Monday. He went seven innings, while only giving up one run and striking out seven.
