Braden Shipley will start Sunday's game against the Rockies.
• D-backs ace Zack Greinke's next step will be throwing a batting practice session. Greinke has been progressing slower this spring than other pitchers, but is said to be completely healthy.
"He's ready to do that," D-backs manager Torey Lovullo said. "We're not exactly certain when that will happen, but it'll happen in the next couple of days. We feel very comfortable saying that. Might have an update for you [Friday] on that. But he's right where he wants to be."
• Lovullo said he is not sure where third baseman Jake Lamb will bat in the order this season, but he did shed some light on what Lamb's spot would look like.
"Sandwiched between two righties in a run-producing spot," Lovullo said.
