Diamondbacks | Eric Chavez leaves game

Thu, 30 May 2013 11:16:19 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Eric Chavez (oblique) left the team's game Thursday, May 30, after suffering a possible oblique injury.

Fantasy Tip: Oblique ailments typically require stints on the disabled list, especially for a player at the end of his career like Chavez. Martin Prado will likely move to third base again full time if that's the case, and Didi Gregorius would see more consistent playing time in the middle infield until Aaron Hill (hand) returns, which is still a ways off.

Diamondbacks | Aaron Hill keeping cast on

Fri, 10 May 2013 10:04:47 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill (hand) was told to leave his soft cast on for another week after he had some pain when he attempted to pick up a bat. He will visit with a doctor Sunday, May 12, and undergo a CT scan Monday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: This is a minor setback for Hill, depending what the doctor and CT scan find this weekend. The team was hoping he could return late this month, but that may have to be pushed back to early June. The D-backs will continue to mix and match in the infield with Martin Prado, Cliff Pennington and Didi Gregorius in the meantime. When Hill returns, Gregorius could be sent back to the minors if the Snakes feel he needs more minor league seasoning.

Diamondbacks | Didi Gregorius may not play every day

Wed, 17 Apr 2013 11:30:31 -0700

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.

Diamondbacks | Martin Prado expected to play 2B

Tue, 16 Apr 2013 12:47:14 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Martin Prado is expected to move to second base in the absence of 2B Aaron Hill, who is expected to miss a month with a broken hand. 3B Eric Chavez will take over at third base. SS Didi Gregorius, who was recalled Tuesday, April 16, is likely to start at shortstop Thursday, April 18.

Fantasy Tip: Chavez gains value with more PT and can be useful as a corner infield piece in deep mixed leagues. It's unclear exactly how much Gregorius will play with Cliff Pennington also on roster, but Arizona probably wouldn't have brought the youngster up just to ride the pine. Gregorius should be owned in NL leagues, but his stay may not be long, depending on how far along Willie Bloomquist (intercostal) is in his recovery.
