After being reinstated from the injured list July 9, Widener stepped into the rotation and was effective while pitching with a restricted workload. He covered 4.1 innings in the outing, giving up one run on three hits and two walks while striking out five in a no-decision against the Dodgers. Though he was optioned to Triple-A following the outing, the transaction was merely for roster-management purposes, as Widener wasn't scheduled to pitch again prior to the All-Star break. Widener will now rejoin the rotation with the Diamondbacks requiring a fifth starter Tuesday for the first time in the second half.
