SS - ARI
The Arizona Diamondbacks have activated shortstop Nick Ahmed from the 10-day injured list.
Ahmed spent the minimum amount of time on the injured list before being activated. Geraldo Perdomo was optioned down to the Diamondbacks alternate site in the process.
Nick Ahmed was placed on the 10-day IL due to right knee inflammation, according to the Diamondbacks.
Ahmed struggled with knee soreness late in spring training, and the DBacks finally made the decision to put him on the 10-day IL, retroactive to March 31st. The DBacks recalled Geraldo Perdomo from the alternate training site, so it's clear Arizona wants to see what their 3rd ranked prospect can do while Ahmed is out. If Ahmed is back soon his job should still be there waiting for him, but Perdomo could force the DBacks to make a difficult decision at SS if he breaks out in Ahmed's absence.
Nick Ahmed has been battling some knee discomfort for about a week.
Ahmed has been fairly steady at shortstop for the past couple years. His numbers won’t blow you away but he is a solid player. If he’s able to play on Opening Day he’s projected to bat 9th.
Nick Ahmed went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to Houston.
Ahmed has been largely disappointing offensively this season, posting a .265 batting average with five homers and 25 RBI. Ahmed is definitely a defense-first shortstop, and hasn't harbored much fantasy attention, for good reason.
Nick Ahmed went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.
Ahmed took Scott Alexander deep in the ninth inning to spark an attempted comeback. Ahmed is slashing .242/.299/.387 with four homers, 19 RBI, 17 runs scored, and two steals through 36 games.
