The Arizona Diamondbacks placed C Miguel Montero (back) on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain Thursday, Aug. 1, and optioned RP Chaz Roe to Triple-A Reno. Montero's DL placement is retroactive to July 29. Also, SP Zeke Spruill and C Tuffy Gosewisch were recalled from Triple-A Reno.
Fantasy Tip: Montero's disappointing season continues. We wouldn't blame you for dropping him in shallow leagues in search of a better backstop. Perhaps Jason Castro? Wil Nieves runs into the main catching duties, and he'll be backed up by Gosewisch.

The Arizona Diamondbacks recalled SP Zeke Spruill from Triple-A Reno Thursday, Aug. 1.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zeke Spruill will make the start against the Texas Rangers Thursday, Aug. 1.
Fantasy Tip: Spruill's start tomorrow is probably of the spot-start variety. With Ian Kennedy being shipped out, the Snakes will need another starter, though, and Tyler Skaggs is perhaps the best option at the moment. Trevor Cahill (hip) is nearing the end of his rehab assignment, too, and will re-enter the rotation, so Spruill and Skaggs are probably short-term options.

Arizona Diamondbacks P Zeke Spruill has been compared to free-agent SP Derek Lowe (Indians), possessing a sinking fastball, curve and improving changeup. He spent a full season with Double-A Mississippi with the Atlanta Braves in 2012.

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.
