The Arizona Diamondbacks are open to trading SS Didi Gregorius. The team loves SS Chris Owings and would be open to starting the season with him at shortstop.

The St. Louis Cardinals haven't expressed much interest in Arizona Diamondbacks SS Didi Gregorius. The team has preferred an experienced shortstop.

Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers said he expects SS Didi Gregorius and SS Chris Owings to compete for the starting shortstop job during spring training.

The emergence of SS Chris Owings may cause problems for the Arizona Diamondbacks because SS prospect Didi Gregorius is at the position, and the team doesn't want to platoon if it can help it. "You'd like to see them get more at-bats, but if it becomes a platoon situation where one's facing lefties and one's facing righties, who's got the hot hand, you can probably make it work," general manager Kevin Towers said. "It's probably no different than what we've had to do with our outfielders, juggling them around a little bit."

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Didi Gregorius was not in the starting lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, Aug. 16. He was 8-for-47 (.170) in his previous 14 games.

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.

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Eric Chavez (oblique) left the team's game Thursday, May 30, after suffering a possible oblique injury.
Fantasy Tip: Oblique ailments typically require stints on the disabled list, especially for a player at the end of his career like Chavez. Martin Prado will likely move to third base again full time if that's the case, and Didi Gregorius would see more consistent playing time in the middle infield until Aaron Hill (hand) returns, which is still a ways off.

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill (hand) was told to leave his soft cast on for another week after he had some pain when he attempted to pick up a bat. He will visit with a doctor Sunday, May 12, and undergo a CT scan Monday, May 13.
Fantasy Tip: This is a minor setback for Hill, depending what the doctor and CT scan find this weekend. The team was hoping he could return late this month, but that may have to be pushed back to early June. The D-backs will continue to mix and match in the infield with Martin Prado, Cliff Pennington and Didi Gregorius in the meantime. When Hill returns, Gregorius could be sent back to the minors if the Snakes feel he needs more minor league seasoning.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have activated SS Didi Gregorius (concussion) from the seven-day disabled list. In a corresponding move, the team optioned OF Alfredo Marte to Triple-A Reno.
