Zack Godley will have a chance to redeem himself and earn back his spot in the Arizona Diamondbacks’ starting rotation.

D-backs manager Torey Lovullo announced following Saturday’s game against Atlanta that Godley would start Sunday’s series finale between the two teams.

“Zack will go ahead and be our starter tomorrow,” Lovullo said. “I’m kind of excited for him. I know it’s something that he’s been working hard to get to.”

Godley was moved to the D-backs bullpen on April 30 following a rough start to the season in which he had a 7.58 ERA in six starts.

Since his move to the bullpen, Godley has appeared in just two games.

He gave up four hits and three runs on Monday against Tampa Bay, then earned a save against the Rays on Wednesday by tossing a scoreless inning.

Taylor Clarke started Tuesday in Godley’s spot in the rotation and allowed two runs in six innings.

The D-backs and Braves close out their four-game series on Sunday at 1:10 p.m.
