Jonathan Sanchez (1-6, 7.76 ERA), who was recently acquired from the Kansas City Royals, will be making his Rockies debut. Sanchez's brief stay in the American League was a disaster, and he'll be looking to reclaim some of the success he had in his six seasons with the San Francisco Giants.

The Diamondbacks will send Ian Kennedy (7-8, 4.33) to the mound.

Game Date & Time: Monday, July 23, 7:40 p.m. MT
