Andrew Chafin is not a top pitcher in the Diamondbacks' farm system, but the 24-year-old lefty pitcher could make his way to Arizona soon. With all the injuries to the pitching staff, Chafin may be the logical decision to get a chance at this point in the season.

Jake Lamb is a Top 10 prospect in the Arizona system, but may not make his arrival until next year. Lamb is hitting .310/.386/.552 with 95 hits this season for Double-A Mobile. If Martin Prado is dealt this month, Lamb is next in line for a shot.

Jake Barrett is a top reliever in the Diamondbacks' system. Barrett has posted a 2.73 ERA in 32 minor league appearances this season. He could definitely help out a depleted bullpen as the season goes on.

The time for Archie Bradley to make the Diamondbacks is nearing. Bronson Arroyo will need Tommy John surgery like four other pitchers on Arizona. Bradley is the organization's top prospect and has a 3.95 ERA in just nine minor league starts. A few more starts from Bradley and he'll be in the rotation soon.

Chris Owings has played in 72 games this season for the Diamondbacks. His shoulder injury is not going to result in a return to the minors this year. He is Arizona's best bet for the future along with Bradley. He should be back by August.
