Diamondbacks | Ender Inciarte activated from DL

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 14:22:28 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Ender Inciarte (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, July 17, and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia (neck) was placed on the 15-day DL with a strained left neck in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Inciarte ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) was successful in the first half before getting injured, hitting .287 (72-for-251) with two home runs, 21 RBI and eight stolen bases. He typically hit near the top of the batting order, but he's not guaranteed an everyday outfield role in Arizona's crowded outfield picture. Nevertheless, he's a nice outfield depth piece to own in deep mixed formats.
