Diamondbacks | No Chris Owings Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:25:47 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20. SS Nick Ahmed is starting at the 6 and hitting eighth in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP David Phelps.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting only .181 (17-for-94) with no home runs and five RBI this year. He's facing a pitcher that has been very strong this year, too, especially against righty sticks. Avoid Ahmed everywhere.

Diamondbacks | Aaron Hill receives a start

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 16:08:34 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill is starting at second base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick Tuesday, April 28. SS Nick Ahmed is not playing.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is batting only .156 (7-for-45) with no homers and two RBI on the season. He's a low-end second base option, but he has a good matchup against Kendrick at Chase Field.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed will start at short

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 15:06:31 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed will start at shortstop to begin the season, according to manager Chip Hale.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmed ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should only be owned in deep leagues and NL-only formats, at this point. He slashed .328/.350/.431 this spring but doesn't tip the scales significantly in any particular fantasy category. His contest-minimum salary is intriguing for FantasyScore contests, though, and presents excellent profit potential in favorable matchups.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed to serve as starter?

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 18:57:36 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale indicated Monday, March 23, that SS Nick Ahmed hasn't been named as the starting shortstop. "To name him the starter is hard to do, because we still have camp left," Hale said. "I'm not ready to do that. He's been very impressive."

Fantasy Tip: A report from columnist Peter Gammons indicated Hale made it clear Ahmed would start, but the skipper indicated differently. Still, Ahmed has been impressive during camp and has emerged as a must-have in NL-only play and deeper mixed formats. He also might be a good value in FantasyScore early on if he does indeed seize the starting gig.

Diamondbacks | Nick Ahmed using whole field

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 20:00:18 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed had a pair of hits, including a double and RBI, in the Cactus League spring game Sunday, March 8. He was able to use the whole field, something the team was pleased to see. "He's tough-minded and he's always been a winner, and those guys seem to be able to adapt. He has to prove to us that he's a Major League-ready hitter. He's a Major League shortstop right now. Defensively, he's tremendous," manager Chip Hale said Tuesday, March 10.

Fantasy Tip: Ahmedís defensive ability could land him a role on the bench to start the season. He is worth a flier in the late rounds in NL-only formats, and he could be a steal if his offense catches up to his defense sooner rather than later.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings placed on disabled list

Sun, 29 Jun 2014 10:10:55 -0700

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.
