Diamondbacks | Willie Bloomquist to start on DL

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Willie Bloomquist (oblique) will start the year on the disabled list with a Grade 2 right oblique strain. He's eligible to return April 11, but there will be no timetable on his recovery time.

Fantasy Tip: Didi Gregorius (elbow) is also injured and isn't ready to make the leap to the majors anyway. Cliff Pennington will be the starter to open the year. There are plenty of other attractive shortstop options than Pennington. He might be good for a few stolen bases, but his bat is nothing special at all.
