Diamondbacks | Wil Nieves having career year

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 16:41:16 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Wil Nieves has stepped up while regular C Miguel Montero (back) is on the disabled list. He's batted .348 with a home run in 135 at-bats this season, although his BABIP is .411. Nieves, 35, credits acceptance in the last couple of years of his role as a backup as well as an improved routine, focused on mechanics rather than hitting for distance, in batting practice as prime reasons for his career year at the dish.

Fantasy Tip: Nieves has hit well this month as a regular, too, so there may be something to his improvements as a hitter. He could be of use as a second catcher in deep leagues, even mixed ones, while Montero is out. But fantasy owners shouldn't go heavily in pursuit of him.

Diamondbacks | Miguel Montero to DL

Thu, 01 Aug 2013 14:00:19 -0700

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.
