Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Diamondbacks | Aaron Hill to DL

The Arizona Diamondbacks placed 2B Aaron Hill (hand) on the 15-day disabled list with a broken left hand Tuesday, April 16, and recalled SS Didi Gregorius from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if the D-backs will move Martin Prado over to second base if they feel Eric Chavez can handle third base. If not, Joshua Wilson can fill in at the keystone. Gregorius will likely provide middle infield depth; he's only played five games at second in the minors. Cliff Pennington could also be moved to second if Arizona wants to give Gregorius PT at shortstop. This situation is fluid. Willie Bloomquist (intercostal) is working his way back from injury, too, so he might be in this mix soon.

Gregorius is worth adding in NL-only leagues because of his upside. Keep in mind, however, that his glove is much more advanced at this point in his career than his bat.
