His last appearance was in the tenth inning of Monday’s 4-3 loss, in which he got an unearned run that gave the Diamondbacks the lead, before the Giants tied it up again in the bottom of the inning.

He’ll be facing off against Diamondbacks right-handed rookie Brandon Pfaadt, making his ninth start of the year. He enters today’s game with an 8.20 ERA, with 11 walks to 30 strikeouts in 37.1 innings pitched.
