Diamondbacks confirm Slade Cecconi as Sunday afternoon starter

The Arizona Diamondbacks will start Slade Cecconi on the mound in Sunday's game against the San Francisco Giants.

What It Means:

Cecconi was called up earlier in the day before the team announced initial starter Merrill Kelly (undisclosed) as a scratch. He has now been named the team's starter for Sunday's game against the Giants with Kelly sidelined.

Cecconi is projected for 22.3 FanDuel points against the Giants today, with 4.5 K and 2.1 ER over 4.3 innings. He struck out just 18% of the batters he faced as a rookie, but also illustrated plus control while walking just 4 batters over 27 innings.
