When Miguel Sano was hitting just .159 and slugging .381 in April, no one in the Twins organization was overly concerned. They knew the rust from having missed the 2014 season because of Tommy John surgery would be considerable, and fully expected him to return to the power-hitting corner infielder he was before the injury.

With Saturday night's 7-2 loss to the Padres at Petco Park, the D-backs fell to 1-4 on the trip, which began in Denver and concludes on Sunday afternoon.

Andrew Chafin becomes Dennis the Menace in bullpen

Through the first four innings of Thursday's D-backs-Rockies game, there wasn't a whole lot for Arizona's bullpen to do, aside from watching the compelling De La Rosa vs. De La Rosa matchup unfurling before them.
