Rondon allowed three runs on two hits while striking out one over one inning in Sunday's 6-1 loss to San Francisco.

Arizona manager Torey Lovullo has yet to find the right combination of relievers to handle high-leverage innings or get games to closer Archie Bradley, and that issue came up again in this series sweep at the hands of the Giants. A day after Matt Grace let a tied game get out of hand in the eighth inning, Rondon let a one-run game escalate by surrendering a three-run homer to Alex Dickerson in the seventh inning. Rondon has allowed runs in seven of his 12 outings this year; on the whole, the one-time setup man has given up 12 runs, four home runs and six walks over 9.1 innings.
