Game 25: Jon Garland vs. Patrick Corbin

USA TODAY Sports

The Rockies go for a series split today in Arizona, but all eyes will be on Nolan Arenado as he makes his much anticipated MLB debut.

The two losses for the Rockies this series have been a case of missed opportunities and poor execution with men on base. In order to salvage a split with the Diamondbacks cashing in on those opportunities will be key. Especially, against D-backs starter Patrick Corbin who has been excellent so far this year.

In order to bolster an offense that is in a bit of a funk the Rockies have called up much ballyhooed prospect Nolan Arenado. Arenado will bat seventh and man third base for the Rockies today. Hopefully, Arenado can solidify the left side of the infield and also provide some pop with the bat. It is not uncommon for even the highest touted prospects to struggle when first called up, so I would caution Rockies' fans to temper their expectations for Arenado.

The Rockies lineup will not feature Carlos Gonzalez who has been given the day off while he tries to battle his way out of a 4-34 slump.

Jon Garland takes the bump as he looks to rebound from his first shaky start of the year. Garland has been solid outside of his last outing and he looks to continue the excellent pitching the Rockies have gotten this series. The starters have pitched well, but the bullpen has been absolutely fantastic. The bullpen has allowed just one unearned run in 10 2/3 innings this series.
