Top Nick Ahmed News

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Lands on IL

    Ahmed was placed on the injured list Monday for an undisclosed reason, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said Ahmed's "shoulder is feeling fine," despite recent news that it flared up in recent days, and stressed it's not the reason the shortstop landed on the IL. So, if it's not the shoulder, then it could be COVID-related. Geraldo Perdomo is expected to see the bulk of the playing time at short while Ahmed is sidelined.

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Still feeling shoulder discomfort

    Arizona manager Torey Lovullo cited Ahmed's "cranky" right shoulder for the decision to hold him out of Friday's starting lineup, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Ahmed was in Saturday's lineup, going 1-for-3 with an RBI, but it sounds like the shoulder is and will be an ongoing issue. "My shoulder doesn't feel perfect, but I'm going to try to keep playing through it as long as I can," Ahmed said. "That's kind of all I have to say." Ahmed, who missed the first two weeks of the regular season, returned with a bang, going 8-for-23 with three home runs over his first seven games played. Since then, he's gone 3-for-26 with eight strikeouts, looking much like the same hitter we saw 2021, when he finished with a .224/.280/.339 slash line.

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Fighting slump

    Ahmed went 1-for-2 with two walks, an RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-3 win over Miami.

    Ahmed returned to the lineup after a one-day breather and delivered one of three two-out RBIs during Arizona's four-run third inning. It was just his second hit over the last 24 at-bats. The shortstop was scalding when he first came off the injury list, notching three home runs and two doubles while hitting .348 over his first 23 at-bats, but he has gone the other way since.

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Average sinking

    Ahmed went 0-for-3 in Friday's 4-1 win over the Rockies.

    Ahmed initially tore it up after being activated off the injury list, going 8-for-23 (.348) with three home runs, but he's now hitless over 13 consecutive at-bats and hitting .235. He remains the team's primary shortstop, but there will be a rotation of sorts among four players in the infield. Josh Rojas and Geraldo Perdomo can play three positions, while Ahmed and second baseman Ketel Marte will get occasional days off to maintain health.

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Sits for day game

    Ahmed is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins, Jody Jackson of Bally Sports Arizona reports.

    The Diamondbacks and Marlins are wrapping up their series with a day game after a night game, so Ahmed will be extended a breather on getaway day. Geraldo Perdomo fills in at shortstop for Ahmed, who has followed up his five-hit, two-homer performance in St. Louis over the weekend by going 0-for-8 with four strikeouts in the first two games in Miami.

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Homers in back-to-back games

    Ahmed went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and three strikeouts in Sunday's 7-5 loss to the Cardinals.

    Ahmed has hit safely in five of seven games since returning from a shoulder injury. He's homered in three of the last four contests, though each one has been a solo shot. The shortstop has added four RBI, four runs scored and a pair of doubles in 23 plate appearances. Ahmed figures to see a majority of the playing time at shortstop, at least until Josh Rojas (oblique) returns.

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Pops first homer

    Ahmed went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Dodgers.

    Ahmed took Julio Urias yard in the fifth inning to record his first homer of the season. He was sidelined by a shoulder injury for the first two weeks of the campaign, and he's been in the lineup in four of six games since. Ahmed has been a light hitter throughout his career, though he does have two extra-base hits in only 12 plate appearances to begin his 2022 season.

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Takes seat Tuesday

    Ahmed is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

    He'll sit for the second time in five games since he returned from a season-opening stint on the injured list while recovering from a shoulder injury. Geraldo Perdomo will draw the start at shortstop Tuesday, but Ahmed should see the bulk of the playing time at the position once his injury is further in the rearview mirror.

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Back in lineup

    Ahmed started at shortstop and went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a double in Sunday's 6-2 loss to the Mets.

    As part of a plan to ease Ahmed back into the lineup after missing the start of the season with a shoulder injury, he returned to the lineup Sunday after a planned off-day Saturday. After going hitless in his debut Friday, the 32-year-old infielder collected his first hits of the season Sunday. It's unclear how long the Diamondbacks plan to ease the shortstop back into a more consistent presence in the lineup.

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Retreats to bench

    Ahmed will sit Saturday against the Mets.

    Ahmed returned from the injured list Friday and went hitless in his season debut. He won't be asked to start on back-to-back days right away, with Geraldo Perdomo starting at shortstop Saturday.

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Hitless in season debut

    Ahmed went 0-for-4 in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Mets.

    Ahmed's shoulder injury improved to the point where he was activated from the injured list Friday. He'll resume his role as the primary shortstop, although the plan is for him to be eased back into the lineup, Theo Mackie of the Arizona Republic reports. That means Ahmed won't be starting every day immediately. In corresponding decisions, the Diamondbacks sent Yonny Hernandez back to Triple-A Reno and kept prospect Geraldo Perdomo, who will share shortstop with Ahmed while also getting practice time at third base.

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Activated Friday

    Ahmed (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, and he's starting at shortstop and batting sixth versus the Mets.

    Ahmed was sidelined for the first two weeks of the season by shoulder inflammation, but he'll make his debut Friday against the Mets. The 32-year-old hit .221/.280/.339 with five home runs, 38 RBI, 46 runs and seven stolen bases in 129 contests during the 2021 campaign.

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Could return for homestand

    Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said Ahmed (shoulder) could return at some point during an upcoming homestand that begins Friday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Lovullo, who mentioned the possibility of a rehab assignment, did not indicate whether a potential return would be closer to the beginning or the end of the homestand. The Diamondbacks open a three-game set against the Mets on Friday, followed by another three-gamer beginning Monday against the Dodgers. Ahmed took six at-bats and played six innings defensively Monday during an exhibition game at the team's training facility at Salt River Fields. The manager also labeled the injured Jordan Luplow (oblique) as a potential returnee along with Ahmed.

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Takes at-bats in XST

    Ahmed (shoulder) took eight at-bats at Arizona's extended spring training complex Thursday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    This was Ahmed's first game action since being shut down late March with recurring shoulder issues. The shortstop was expected to play again Friday. Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo will push for a rehab assignment before having Ahmed rejoin the major-league club. Geraldo Perdomo (1-for-16, seven strikeouts) has been filling in at shortstop while Ahmed is on the mend.
