Arizona Diamondbacks INF Eric Hinske has been suspended for five games for leaving the dugout and his aggressive actions during the incidents in his team's game on Tuesday, June 11, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Manager Kirk Gibson has been suspended for one game for the intentional actions of SP Ian Kennedy in that contest after a warning had been issued. Gibson is scheduled to serve his suspension on Friday, June 14.
Also, C Miguel Montero and OF Gerardo Parra were fined undisclosed amounts. All player discipline is subject to appeal.
The Diamondbacks will not be allowed to have players who are on the DL to sit in their dugout for their games throughout this coming weekend. Those players may return to their benches on Monday, June 17.
Fantasy Tip: Phew. Thankfully, for fantasy owners, Montero and Parra escaped without suspensions. The rest of this is inconsequential for fantasy purposes, essentially. The Dodgers had players who are on the DL leave the dugout, not the Snakes, but so be it.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Gerardo Parra (calf) was expected to return to the lineup Wednesday, May 29, against the Texas Rangers before that game was rained out. He left the game Monday, May 27, due to a left calf cramp, but is feeling much better. "He'll be ready to go tomorrow," manager Kirk Gibson said.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Gerardo Parra (calf) has a left calf cramp.
Fantasy Tip: He's probably day-to-day and in his absence would open up time for A.J. Pollock.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Adam Eaton (elbow) has no structural damage in his elbow, based on MRI results, the team announced. He'll strengthen around the area for two to three weeks and then begin a throwing program.
Fantasy Tip: The Snakes have apparently given no additional details about a timetable following the outfielder's recent setback, but it sounds like Eaton is unlikely to return before mid- to late June. They'll probably proceed a little more cautiously this time. A.J. Pollock's seemingly dwindling value just received a slight jolt, although he's still contending with Jason Kubel, Gerardo Parra and Cody Ross.

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Gerardo Parra had three more hits and finished a double shy of the cycle in an extra-innings affair Wednesday, April 3. He is 8-for-16 with five extra-base hits in the first three games.

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson left OF Gerardo Parra in the leadoff role for a second straight night Tuesday, April 2, against the St. Louis Cardinals. He went 1-for-4 with a strikeout after tying a career-high with four hits in the opener Monday, April 1. "It'll be hard to take him out of there if he keeps playing that way," Gibson said. "He's worked hard and here he is today. He had a great game for us (Monday)." OF A.J. Pollock is another option at the top of the lineup.

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Friday, Feb. 15, that OF Gerardo Parra has a chance to earn his way into the Opening day lineup based on his performance this spring. Parra mainly played center field in winter ball and he plans on playing for Venezuela in the upcoming World Baseball Classic.
Fantasy Tip: Gibson said he would like to give OFs Adam Eaton, Jason Kubel, Cody Ross and Parra each around 400-500 at-bats. Parra can be a useful NL-only fantasy option, and a decent addition in deeper mixed formats if he is able to force his way into the lineup. Monitor his performance, and that of the others, during the spring.
