NBC SportsRyne Nelson will start Friday's second-half opener against the Cubs.

Nelson will take the ball at Wrigley Field to be followed by Zac Gallen and Brandon Pfaadt for the rest of the weekend road series. It'll be interesting to see whether Arizona sticks with rookie Yilber Diaz for the remainder of the second half, especially with Jordan Montgomery (knee) due back at some point in the near future.

NBC SportsZac Gallen was absolutely clobbered in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon, giving up seven runs (six earned) on nine hits in just 3 2/3 innings of work.

The right-hander walked one and struck out just one batter in the ballgame. The Blue Jays had scratched out just an unearned run against him through the first three frames, but the wheels fell off for Gallen in the fourth inning. There, the Jays' scored on run-scoring singles by Daulton Varsho and Ernie Clement before they opened it up with a grand slam off the bat of Kevin Kiermaier. Gallen got just four swings and misses on 70 pitches in the game, registering a CSW of 26 percent. He finishes his first half with a 6-5 record, 3.87 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and a 76/21 K/BB ratio over 76 2/3 innings in his 15 starts.

NBC SportsKevin Kiermaier capped off a seven-run uprising in the fourth inning on Sunday with a grand slam as the Blue Jays eked out a one-run victory over the Diamondbacks.

Kiermaier, who was passed through waivers unclaimed earlier in the week, capped off a seven-run rally against Zac Gallen with a 395-foot (97.4 mph EV) grand slam on a first-pitch cutter. That would be his only hit in four at-bats on the day, but it played a critical role in the Jays' victory. On the season, the defensive specialist is slashing .189/.234/.306 with four homers and 18 RBI.

NBC SportsBo Bichette (calf) was held out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup for Sunday's first half finale against the Diamondbacks.

While the 26-year-old shortstop showed improvement over the weekend, the Jays' thought it made more sense to keep him out of action and give him the extended rest with the All-Star break coming up. Once again, Leo Jimenez will start in his place at shortstop and he'll bat seventh against Zac Gallen and the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

NBC SportsBrandon Pfaadt allowed just three hits over six innings in the Diamondbacks' 1-0 win over the Braves on Thursday.

Pfaadt got his win of the month tonight, as he improved to 4-6 while the Diamondbacks moved to 10-9 in his starts. He's given the team 10 quality starts while pitching at least six innings on 14 occasions. With Merrill Kelly and Zac Gallen having missed so much time, it's scary to think just how much the Diamondbacks would have needed to ask from their pen if Pfaadt hadn't been so solid to date.
