Ahmed went 4-for-5 with a double and a triple in a 10-3 win over Washington on Saturday. Ahmed tripled in the second inning and doubled in the third inning to key rallies for Arizona. The 29-year-old continues to hit well and has 27 extra-base hits this year, leading to a .277/.329/.434 slash line in 249 at-bats.
Ahmed went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Nationals. Ahmed took Max Scherzer deep to lead off the fifth inning for his fifth home run in 2019. It snapped a 14-game drought without a homer for the shortstop, who hit 16 long balls last season.
Ahmed went 1-for-3 with a run scored in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Phillies. Ahmed returned to action after missing one game due to a foot injury, one the Diamondbacks had implied wasn't a serious setback. The shortstop is hitting a career-high .269 while also generating a career-best .326 on-base percentage. The tradeoff for better hitting has been a drop in home runs -- he's hit four homers in 66 games after knocking 16 in 2018.
Ahmed (foot) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Phillies. The Diamondbacks are viewing Ahmed as day-to-day for the time being after he sustained a bone contusion in his left foot during Sunday's win over the Blue Jays. If Ahmed's foot fails to show much improvement after a day or two of rest, a stint on the 10-day injured list would become more realistic. Ketel Marte will spell Ahmed at shortstop in the first game of Arizona's East Coast road swing.
Ahmed is believed to have a bone contusion in his left foot, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. Ahmed sustained the injury during the third inning Sunday and was removed from the Diamondbacks' win over the Blue Jays. The injury is not considered serious, and there are no plans for Ahmed to undergo tests.
