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.

The Arizona Diamondbacks are now trying to package SS Nick Ahmed, who they just acquired from the Atlanta Braves in a six-player deal involving OF Justin Upton, and a pitching prospect in order to acquire Detroit Tigers SP Rick Porcello, according to a National League official.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to a deal to acquire 3B Martin Prado, SP Randall Delgado, SS Nick Ahmed, 1B Brandon Drury and P Zeke Spruill for OF Justin Upton and 3B Chris D. Johnson.
Fantasy Tip: We loved Prado's fantasy forecast entering the season, and this move only elevates it. He has hit .319 in 47 career at-bats in Chase Field. He'll be a sneaky option at third base because he won't hit for a lot of power, but he could contend for the batting title. Chase Field's hitter-friendly confines, and the Arizona heat could help Prado hit 15 homers. Look for him in the early middle rounds of drafts.

The Atlanta Braves are likely to include SP Julio Teheran in any deal to acquire Arizona Diamondbacks OF Justin Upton. At least one other Atlanta pitching prospect, such as Ps Sean Gilmartin or Zeke Spruill, will need to be sent to Arizona, too. SS Nick Ahmed, could also interest the D-backs.
