The Arizona Diamondbacks announced on Monday they will have reliever Matt Andriese start on Tuesday against the Chicago Cubs.

Tuesday would have been right-hander Clay Buchholz’s turn in the rotation, but Buchholz was ruled out the rest of the year due to a flexor strain in his right arm.

Buchholz was a late scratch on Thursday in Colorado, leading to Matt Koch replacing him. In Buchholz’s place, Koch allowed four earned runs in 3.0 innings.

The 29-year-old Andriese was previously a starter in 2016 and 2017 for the Tampa Bay Rays. He started a career-high 19 games in 2016, throwing 127.2 innings and posting a 4.37 ERA.

While Andriese had made four starts for the Rays prior to being traded this season, those came in Tamps Bay’s system of starting relievers and Andriese never threw at least four innings in those outings.

Acquired in late July, Andriese has struggled mightily as a D-back. In 12 appearances over 16.0 innings, he has given up 13 earned runs for a 7.31 ERA.
