Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said 3B Eric Chavez (oblique) is a few weeks away from returning to active duty.

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Eric Chavez (oblique) had an MRI reveal a minor tear in his oblique, and he'll be out at least three weeks.
Fri, 31 May 2013 08:12:58 -0700
Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Eric Chavez (oblique) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 31, and INF Willie Bloomquist (oblique) from the DL.

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Eric Chavez (oblique) will undergo an MRI exam after leaving the game early Thursday, May 30. The team may activate SS Willie Bloomquist (oblique) from the disabled list if Chavez has to land on the DL. Bloomquist has been rehabbing with Triple-A Reno.
Fantasy Tip: Bloomquist's return would create more excess in the middle infield with Cliff Pennington and Didi Gregorius. It's unclear how the Snakes would let playing time shake out in that scenario, and there's a possibility that they send Gregorius back to the minors. Gregorius and Pennington are deep mixed infield depth until that situation presents itself.

Updating a previous report, Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Eric Chavez (oblique) left the game with a strained right oblique Thursday, May 30.
Fantasy Tip: This will likely put Chavez on the DL. Didi Gregorius will gain more value in deep mixed leagues since he should be playing every day now at either shortstop or second base. Cliff Pennington should be a lineup mainstay as a result, too, at least until Aaron Hill (hand) returns.

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Eric Chavez (oblique) left the team's game Thursday, May 30, after suffering a possible oblique injury.
Fantasy Tip: Oblique ailments typically require stints on the disabled list, especially for a player at the end of his career like Chavez. Martin Prado will likely move to third base again full time if that's the case, and Didi Gregorius would see more consistent playing time in the middle infield until Aaron Hill (hand) returns, which is still a ways off.

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.
