Diamondbacks Vs. Marlins: Lineups, Collmenter Working Toward Return And More

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson informed the media on Monday afternoon that Josh Collmenter, a long relief/part time starter for the D-backs, is working his way back to the bullpen. Collmenter was originally placed on the 15-day disabled list with ulcers and apparently they were pretty severe. He is scheduled to pitch tomorrow at Salt River Fields as a way to help regain some strength.

Collmenter also threw a session last Saturday, but Gibby noted that there is no timetable for his return. For now, the team will likely stick with Brad Bergesen, whom they acquired off of waivers earlier in the season.

The Marlins enter Chase Field tonight with a 26-36 road record. Their ranking is likely to dwindle even more after trading mainstays from their team such as Hanley Ramirez and Gabby Sanchez. They will take on the Diamondbacks tonight, tomorrow night and then twice on Wednesday in the first ever doubleheader played in Phoenix.

For the doubleheader, Wade Miley was announced as one of the starters. The other starter has not yet been determined, but there are a few things fans can look into. Tyler Skaggs, a young superstar prospect for the Diamondbacks, was scratched from his start on Monday with the AAA Reno Aces team. Whether or not that means he is getting called up is yet to be determined, but it seems like a good indicator.

Here are tonight's lineups for the Marlins/Diamondbacks game:

Emilio Bonafacio (CF)

Donovan Solano (2B)
