The Arizona Diamondbacks may retain the services of SS Cliff Pennington for one more season. Pennington is arbitration-eligible for one more year. "Veteran leadership, he can play multiple positions," general manager Kevin Towers said of Pennington. "Having him kind of there with those two guys [Chris Owings and Didi Gregorius] is good."

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings (shoulder) has been diagnosed with a bruised shoulder and should return in a couple weeks.
Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Owings owners. It also limits Didi Gregorius' already minimal value.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed SS Chris Owings (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left shoulder. In a corresponding move, the contract of SS Nick Ahmed has been purchased from Triple-A Reno. Owings' DL stint is retroactive to Thursday, June 26.
Fantasy Tip: Expect SS Didi Gregorius to receive regular playing time in Owings' absence. He's more of a defensive-minded player than Owings but could warrant consideration for NL-only fantasy leagues.

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Didi Gregorius has taken some balls in center field and could be an option to play the position eventually, according to manager Kirk Gibson.
Fantasy Tip: Gregorius is playing third base today for the first time in his professional career. It looks like the D-Backs are trying to find other avenues of playing time for him with Chris Owings entrenched at short. Gregorius is a defense-first player and won't offer much offensively for fantasy players.

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Didi Gregorius made his first career start at second base Saturday, June 7, against the Atlanta Braves. He had made 104 career starts at shortstop.

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.
