Diamondbacks | Martin Prado expected to play 2B

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.
