The Arizona Diamondbacks placed SS Cliff Pennington (thumb) on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained ligament in his left thumb Tuesday, June 3, and recalled SS Didi Gregorius from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Gregorius will be middle infield depth behind Chris Owings and Aaron Hill in Arizona. He's only worth adding in very deep NL-only leagues for depth.

The biggest position player battle for the Arizona Diamondbacks this spring will be at shortstop, where SS Didi Gregorius, SS Chris Owings and SS Cliff Pennington are battling for playing time. General manager Kevin Towers believes the incumbent is the favorite heading into camp. "To me, the favorite has to be Didi," Towers said. "He was our shortstop last year. For a rookie, I thought he played very, very well. Great defender. He got off to a real hot start. The league probably caught up with him a little bit at the end. He probably got a little bit tired."

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Cliff Pennington and 3B Matt Davidson are expected to remain as bench players next season. The Snakes would like to re-sign 3B Eric Chavez and have SSs Didi Gregorius and Chris Owings battle for playing time at shortstop.

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Eric Chavez (oblique) will undergo an MRI exam after leaving the game early Thursday, May 30. The team may activate SS Willie Bloomquist (oblique) from the disabled list if Chavez has to land on the DL. Bloomquist has been rehabbing with Triple-A Reno.
Fantasy Tip: Bloomquist's return would create more excess in the middle infield with Cliff Pennington and Didi Gregorius. It's unclear how the Snakes would let playing time shake out in that scenario, and there's a possibility that they send Gregorius back to the minors. Gregorius and Pennington are deep mixed infield depth until that situation presents itself.

Updating a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Eric Chavez (oblique) left the game with a strained right oblique Thursday, May 30.
Fantasy Tip: This will likely put Chavez on the DL. Didi Gregorius will gain more value in deep mixed leagues since he should be playing every day now at either shortstop or second base. Cliff Pennington should be a lineup mainstay as a result, too, at least until Aaron Hill (hand) returns.
