Delgado covered two innings in Wednesday's 16-5 win over the Rockies, conceding one run on one hit and striking out three.

EDGE Analysis

Aside from allowing a triple to Raimel Tapia, who eventually came around to score, Delgado made it through the Coors Field outing with relative ease. The right-hander has made two appearances out of the bullpen since being dropped from a starting role, and it appears he'll continue to work in long relief until either Zack Godley or Patrick Corbin proves ill-suited for rotation duty.

Delgado will move back to the bullpen beginning with Wednesday's game against the Tigers, ArizonaSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Taijuan Walker (finger) cleared to come off the disabled list to start Wednesday, manager Torey Lovullo made the tough choice to remove Delgado from his starting role, allowing Patrick Corbin and Zack Godley to maintain spots in the rotation. After excelling in relief earlier in the season, Delgado transitioned well to starting duty in late May despite not being fully stretched out, turning in a 3.15 ERA and 1.25 WHIP while striking out 20 batters in 20 innings over four outings. He'll lose much of his fantasy value now that his appearances will be shorter in length and more sporadic, but Delgado seems to have at least established himself as the top alternative if another injury should strike the rotation at some point.

Delgado was charged with four runs on seven hits and two walks over five innings and took a no decision in Friday's 8-6 loss to the Brewers. He struck out five batters in the outing.

EDGE Analysis

After Delgado turned in a 1.80 ERA and 1.07 WHIP over his prior three starts since moving from a long-relief role to the starting staff, manager Torey Lovullo announced that the right-hander would stick in the rotation even after Taijuan Walker (finger) returns from the disabled list. Delgado didn't exactly reward Lovullo's faith in him Friday, but the 27-year-old admirably overcame a rough first inning in which he allowed three runs to give up only one run on four hits the rest of the way. It will probably take a more significant implosion before Delgado's rotation spot is in jeopardy, and he'll have a great opportunity to boost his job security during his next outing, which is expected to come next weekend against the cellar-dwelling Phillies.

Manager Torey Lovullo said that Delgado will remain in the rotation, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Delgado has been strong in all three of his starts this season, posting a 1.80 ERA while striking out a batter per inning in that span. That instilled enough confidence in the Diamondbacks that they'll keep him in the rotation even after Taijuan Walker (finger) returns from the disabled list. This likely means that Zach Godley will get booted from the rotation once Walker returns, although more information should come forth once Walker gets closer to rejoining the rotation. Delgado is currently lined up to make his next start Friday against Zach Davies and the Brewers.

Delgado (1-1) allowed just a single run on six hits and a walk while striking out four batters over 5.1 innings during Saturday's loss to Miami.

EDGE Analysis

It was a solid outing from Delgado, but unfortunately, Edinson Volquez spun a no-hitter for the Marlins. Delgado has now allowed just two runs over 11 innings through his past two starts, and he could be pushing for a permanent turn in the rotation. However, it's probably wise to wait for an announcement on that front before counting on Delgado. After all, the 27-year-old righty hasn't been a regular starter since the 2013 campaign.

Delgado has been named the starter for Saturday's game against the Marlins, ArizonaSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Delgado's transition from long relief to a starting role in place of Taijuan Walker (finger) has gone swimmingly through two turns in the rotation, as the right-hander has turned in a 1.86 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 11:1 K:BB across 9.1 innings. Now that's he's build up his arm over the first two starts, Delgado shouldn't face any pitch-count restrictions in Saturday's outing, but it's expected that he'll head back to the bullpen beginning next week. Walker threw a successful three-inning simulated game Tuesday and is on track to take back his rotation spot Sunday in the series finale.

Delgado allowed one run on five hits while walking none and striking out eight over 5.2 innings for a no-decision in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The eight strikeouts were a season high for Delgado in his second start filling in for Taijuan Walker (hand). Aside from a couple rough outings in April in relief, Delgado has held his own for Arizona, but his fantasy value is fleeting with Walker expected to return to the rotation in short order.

Delgado will make another start Monday against the Pirates, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Delgado finished just four innings in his spot start Wednesday against the White Sox, but he was sharp until he ran up against his pitch count. He allowed just one earned run on three hits and a walk, a good enough performance to earn himself another start. Still, Delgado will likely be sent back to the bullpen once Taijuan Walker is ready to return, and Walker is currently expected to be ready for the next turn through the rotation.

Delgado allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk while striking out three over four innings in Wednesday's 8-6 win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

He threw 61 pitches (36 strikes) in his first start since 2015, but Delgado didn't last long enough to get credit for a win despite the impressive offensive support he received. If the D-backs keep him in the rotation for another turn, the 27-year-old righty would make his next start Monday on the road against the Pirates.

Manager Torey Lovullo confirmed Delgado will start Wednesday's game against the White Sox, Jack Magruder of FanRagSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Delgado will draw the spot start for Wednesday's series finale in place of the injured Taijuan Walker (hand). While the 27-year-old began his career as a starter, he transitioned to the bullpen a few years ago and hasn't started a big-league game since 2015. Delgado owns a 4.05 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 24:5 K:BB through 26.2 innings of relief (15 appearances) this season. It's unclear if Delgado will make more than one start, though that will likely be determined by his performance Wednesday.
