Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed is out of the lineup Sunday versus Colorado.

Ahmed started the the past seven games and will take a seat Sunday after going 7-for-25 with three doubles, two RBI and four runs during that stretch. Josh Rojas will start at shortstop and bat sixth in the series finale for Arizona.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Runs hit streak to four
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Wednesday's 12-3 loss to San Diego.

Ahmed has hit in four straight games after getting a two-day break last weekend. The shortstop opened the season in a miserable 3-for-41 slump but has turned things around during this hitting streak, going 6-for-13 with three doubles.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Hits in both ends of doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed started both games of Sunday's doubleheader sweep over Atlanta and hit safely in each. The shortstop went 2-for-3 with a double in the opener, then 1-for-3 with a double and two runs scored in the nightcap.

Ahmed was given a day off Friday and got a second day when Saturday's game was postponed, giving him time to work on his mechanics. The break appeared to work for this one day, as he stroked four hard-hit balls on the day. Ahmed's Statcast profile suggests his early season slump is well deserved, but a .162 BABIP supports the notion that he's been unlucky.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Works on swing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed used Friday's day off from the starting lineup to work on his swing mechanics, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Ahmed focused on his lower half, which he believes led to a chain reaction of issues throughout the rest of the swing. He also acknowledged the knee injury that dogged him throughout spring training and landed him on the injured list to start the season played more of a role than he was willing to admit. "I've developed compensations," he said, "that I couldn't necessarily feel and have to go about undoing those compensations now and get back to being the type of hitter I know I can be." The shortstop entered Friday's game as a pinch hitter for his replacement, Josh Rojas, and grounded out. That dropped Ahmed's average to .073.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed will sit Friday against Atlanta.

Ahmed sits for just the second time since returning from a knee injury April 10. He's struggled significantly at the plate, hitting .075/.119/.075, though a .100 BABIP likely accounts for some of his problems. Josh Rojas will take over at shortstop in his absence.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Won't lose starts amid slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed went 0-for-4 in Thursday's 14-11 win over the Reds.

Ahmed, who was pulled for a pinch hitter for the second straight game, saw his batting average drop to .075 (3-for-40), but manager Torey Lovullo plans to stick with him as a starter, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. "The swing is a little disconnected," Lovullo said. "It's not synced up. I just think it has more to do with direction. He sees the ball. He's confident. I just feel like mechanically there is a little flaw in there that is preventing him from squaring the baseball up on a consistent basis." With Josh Rojas' batting heating up over the last four contests (4-for-10, three walks, one HR), there's a chance Lovullo gives Ahmed a one-day break at some point. The manager added that he does not believe the knee that forced Ahmed to miss the first two weeks of the season is an issue.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Day off Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed will hit the bench Friday against the Nationals.

Ahmed started five straight games after returning from a knee injury Saturday. He went hitless in four of them and owns a .295 OPS through his first 21 plate appearances of the year, so it's no surprise to see him get a bit of a break. Josh Rojas will start at shortstop in his absence.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Sluggish start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed went 0-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base, an RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's 11-6 win over the Nationals.

Ahmed knocked in a run on a fielder's choice, his second RBI of the season, and scored his first runs of the season. The stolen base was his first, but speed has not been a big element to his game. His eight thefts over 158 games in 2019 stand as his career benchmark. After starting the year on the injured list due to a knee injury, the shortstop hasn't done much since rejoining the Diamondbacks. Ahmed is 2-for-19 out of the gate.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Hitless in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed went 0-for-3 in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Reds.

Ahmed was activated off the injured list and made his season debut Saturday. He had been dealing with knee discomfort for much of spring training.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Making season debut Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed is starting Saturday's game against the Reds.

Ahmed was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, and he'll bat seventh during his season debut Saturday. The 31-year-old slashed .266/.327/.402 with five home runs, 29 RBI and four stolen bases in 57 games during the 2020 campaign and should serve as the everyday shortstop for Arizona going forward.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed (knee) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.

Ahmed dealt with right knee inflammation late in spring training that forced him to miss the start of the regular season, but he'll be eligible to make his season debut early as Saturday. Ahmed should take over as the Diamondbacks' everyday shortstop once again now that he's healthy.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Expected back this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed (knee) is expected to be activated off the injured list this weekend, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

The Diamondbacks welcomed back Kole Calhoun on Friday and could get another regular back if Ahmed is deemed ready. Josh Rojas has been filling in at shortstop, but after an 0-for-4 on Friday, he's batting just .074.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: To hit in cage soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed (knee) will hit in the cage soon, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

Ahmed is dealing with knee inflammation and already received a platelet-rich plasma injection during spring training, so it sounds like a pain-management issue. Prior to landing on the injured list, he said he hoped the injury would not linger all season, but that seems like a possibility. In the meantime, top prospect Geraldo Perdomo is handling the work at shortstop.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Hits injured list as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed landed on the 10-day injured list with right knee inflammation Saturday.

Ahmed broke camp on the big-league roster despite battling a sore knee for most of March. He failed to appear in either of the team's first two games, however, and he'll now be out for at least another week. It's not clear when exactly he's expected to return. Geraldo Perdomo was recalled in a corresponding move, though it will be Josh Rojas who starts at shortstop for the third straight game Saturday against the Padres.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Likely headed to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed (knee) is likely headed to the injured list, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Arizona is promoting its shortstop of the future, Geraldo Perdomo, from the minors in what is expected to be a short-term stay while Ahmed gets right physically. On Friday, Ahmed said he hoped his knee soreness wouldn't linger all season, which was an ominous quote. He has already had a platelet-rich plasma injection, so it sounds like Arizona is trying everything it can to help Ahmed get right.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Hopes knee injury won't linger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed, who is out of Friday's lineup against the Padres, said he hopes his knee issue won't linger all season, Jody Jackson of FOX Sports Arizona reports.

He is not yet ready to make his season debut, as it sounds like Ahmed is hoping to get as healthy as possible before taking the field in an effort to get over the knee soreness that bothered him all spring. Ahmed received a platelet-rich plasma injection in late March, which is always an ominous sign. It seems likely that he will get into a game fairly soon, but it also seems possible that this knee issue could affect his performance this season.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed (knee) will remain on the bench Friday against the Padres.

Ahmed battled knee soreness throughout March but made the Opening Day roster, suggesting his season debut should be coming soon. Previous reports indicated that debut could come Friday, but if it does, it won't be happening at the start of the game. Josh Rojas remains the starter at shortstop in his absence.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Could play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed (knee) could make his season debut Friday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Ahmed, who was hobbled by knee soreness for much of March, was unavailable for Opening Day in San Diego, but manager Torey Lovullo left open the possibility that he could play Friday. "We'll keep pushing it back 24 hours and keep having the same conversation," Lovullo said. Josh Rojas filled in at shortstop Thursday.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Not starting Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed (knee) isn't starting Thursday's game against the Padres.

The 31-year-old dealt with a right knee injury late in camp, but manager Torey Lovullo thought that there was a strong possibility that Ahmed could play Opening Day. However, Josh Rojas will fill in at shortstop Thursday while Asdrubal Cabrera enters the lineup at the hot corner, batting fifth.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Takes grounders, BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed (knee) fielded groundballs and took regular batting practice Tuesday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Ahmed hasn't played in a game since March 24 and had just 21 spring at-bats, but Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo believes there's a strong possibility the shortstop plays Opening Day. If he's unavailable, Josh Rojas is the most likely fill-in.
