Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Martin Prado is expected to play mostly second base with 2B Aaron Hill (hand) out, but SS Cliff Pennington is also an option at second base, and manager Kirk Gibson said he won't play 3B Eric Chavez at third base more than two days in a row. SS Didi Gregorius will be used primarily at shortstop for the time being. However, general manager Kevin Towers said the team will be conservative with Gregorius' playing time, suggesting he won't play every day.
Fantasy Tip: The D-backs' infield alignment, minus first base, will be very fluid for the next few weeks with Hill on the disabled list. The only one that will be playing consistently is Prado. Temper your expectations for Gregorius, especially since it sounds like he won't be playing every day. He's strictly NL-only material for now.

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Martin Prado is expected to move to second base in the absence of 2B Aaron Hill, who is expected to miss a month with a broken hand. 3B Eric Chavez will take over at third base. SS Didi Gregorius, who was recalled Tuesday, April 16, is likely to start at shortstop Thursday, April 18.
Fantasy Tip: Chavez gains value with more PT and can be useful as a corner infield piece in deep mixed leagues. It's unclear exactly how much Gregorius will play with Cliff Pennington also on roster, but Arizona probably wouldn't have brought the youngster up just to ride the pine. Gregorius should be owned in NL leagues, but his stay may not be long, depending on how far along Willie Bloomquist (intercostal) is in his recovery.
