Diamondbacks | Didi Gregorius may not play every day

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Martin Prado is expected to play mostly second base with 2B Aaron Hill (hand) out, but SS Cliff Pennington is also an option at second base, and manager Kirk Gibson said he won't play 3B Eric Chavez at third base more than two days in a row. SS Didi Gregorius will be used primarily at shortstop for the time being. However, general manager Kevin Towers said the team will be conservative with Gregorius' playing time, suggesting he won't play every day.

Fantasy Tip: The D-backs' infield alignment, minus first base, will be very fluid for the next few weeks with Hill on the disabled list. The only one that will be playing consistently is Prado. Temper your expectations for Gregorius, especially since it sounds like he won't be playing every day. He's strictly NL-only material for now.
