Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Digging out of early hole
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed went 1-for-3 in Friday's 3-0 loss to San Diego.

Ahmed is slowly digging himself out of a slow start. He's hit safely in four straight contests after starting the season 2-for-31 (.065).

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Two-run blast in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 14-7 win over the Astros.

Ahmed went deep in the fifth inning off Astros reliever Nivaldo Rodriguez. It's the first homer of the year for Ahmed, who is hitting just .105 with two RBI and two runs scored through 12 contests. He regularly bats ninth in the lineup and hasn't done enough to warrant fantasy attention in 2020.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Reaches base twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed went 1-for-3 with a walk in Tuesday's loss against the Astros.

Ahmed is having a disappointing season, as he has recorded just three hits -- all singles -- in his first 34 at-bats, good for a paltry .088 average. He shouldn't be targeted in any formats until he finds a way to turn things around.

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

Ahmed returned to the lineup Saturday and went 0-for-3 in an 11-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Ahmed was given a night off to reboot Friday after going 2-for-24 over the first seven games. He's had an impact bat as a shortstop the last two seasons, but that bat's been nowhere to be found amid the team's early offensive slump. Ahmed is slashing .071/.161/.071 with one run and zero RBI.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Sits for first time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed is out of the lineup Friday against the Dodgers.

Ahmed started each of Arizona's first seven games at shortstop but struggled significantly at the plate, grabbing just two hits. Ketel Marte slides to shortstop in his absence, with Ildemaro Vargas starting at second base.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Hitless through three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed went 0-for-3 with a walk in Sunday's 4-3 win over San Diego.

Ahmed's ninth-inning walk was the first time he reached base safely this season. Arizona's nine-hole hitter is 0-for-9 through the first three games, a slow start for the shortstop who belted 35 home runs and drove in 152 runs over the last two seasons.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Launches first spring homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's spring game against the Rockies.

Ahmed, who hit a career-high 19 home runs in 2019, cranked out his first spring home run. The Diamondbacks made the soon-to-be 30-year-old shortstop a wealthier man during the offseason, inking Ahmed to a four-year extension. It's a payday earned by his improvements at the plate. All the advanced metrics (wRC+, contact rates, plate discipline, hard-hit percentage, barrels, etc.) indicate the improved bat is for real.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Signs four-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed agreed to a four-year extension with Arizona on Monday.

Ahmed will make at least $32.5 million over the course of the deal, with the potential for more in incentives, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports. The shortstop had been scheduled to reach free agency after the 2020 season, so the deal buys out three extra years and keeps him under club control through his age-33 season. He's never had an above-average batting line, but his .254/.316/.437 line last season was good for a 92 wRC+, an acceptable figure for a player with a strong defensive reputation at shortstop.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Positioning for payday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed will enter the offseason with a particular focus on being more consistent at the plate, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Ahmed was already an elite defender upon entering MLB, and his bat is catching up. He's set career bests (entering Sunday) in most major hitting categories, including average (.255), OBP (.318), slugging (.440), home runs (19), triples (6) and RBI (82). The Massachusetts native plans to focus on the areas of better pitch recognition, making more hard contact, and chasing fewer pitches outside the zone. The 29-year-old is entering the final year of arbitration and will become a free agent in 2021. His combination of elite defense and emerging bat should set himself up for a nice payday.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 9-7 loss to the Cardinals.

Ahmed led off the ninth inning with his 19th homer, trying to ignite a rally to stave off elimination from postseason contention. Alas, the Diamondbacks could not complete the comeback, and their postseason hopes were dashed. Since his return from a finger injury four games ago, Ahmed is 5-for-15 with three extra-base hits.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed (finger) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres.

Ahmed missed the last couple games after his fingernail was damaged while fielding a groundball in Monday's game, but he is ready to return to action on the heels of a team off day. Ahmed will start at shortstop and hit seventh Friday night.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Remains out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed (finger) remains on the bench Wednesday against the Marlins.

Ahmed was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with a finger issue and will wind up missing at least one more start. Domingo Leyba gets the start at shortstop.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Late scratch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Marlins due to a finger injury, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

Ahmed was slated to start at shortstop Tuesday, but Arizona has determined that he's unable to go after suffering a finger injury during Monday night's contest. Ildemaro Vargas will replace Ahmed at shortstop.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Starting at shortstop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed (finger) is starting at shortstop and batting seventh Tuesday against Miami.

Ahmed had to leave Monday evening's contest after injuring a finger on his throwing hand, but he's been cleared to return to action Tuesday. He went 0-for-3 at the dish in the series opener prior to exiting.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Expects to play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed (finger) was confident following Monday's game that he will be available to play Tuesday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Ahmed was removed from Monday's game when a hard-hit groundball took a bad hop and split the nail on his right middle finger. "If it stopped bleeding, I would have stayed in the game and been fine," said Ahmed. "It was bleeding all over my pants. It would have been bleeding on the ball if it was hit to me. Unfortunately, I had to come out right there." Ahmed, who mentioned at least three times to reporters that he would be fine, has played in 34 consecutive games.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Exits with finger injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed left Monday's game against the Marlins with a finger injury, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

Ahmed suffered the injury while trying to field a grounder with his bare hand, and after being examined by the team trainer, he was forced to depart. He'll be considered day-to-day until another update is released.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Scores lone run in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed went 1-for-3 with a triple and the lone run in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Reds.

Ahmed's third-inning triple, his fifth of the year, was the only hit the Diamondbacks could muster against Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani and two relievers. Ahmed ultimately scored the only run for either team on a Jarrod Dyson sacrifice fly. The shortstop is hitting .260/.322/.443 with 18 homers, 80 RBI and 74 runs scored this season, all career highs for the 29-year-old.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Warms up again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed went 1-for-3 with a walk and solo home run in Friday's 7-5 win over the Reds.

Ahmed snapped a 13-game drought without a homer in the third inning when he went yard to put Arizona on the board. He was one of the hottest hitters on the planet at the beginning of August and is once against heating up. He's gone 10-for-29 with four doubles, one homer and seven RBI over the last eight games.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Four-game double streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk Sunday in the Diamondbacks' 4-3 loss to the Dodgers.

Though Ahmed hasn't homered since Aug. 20, he's still been hitting the ball with authority lately, notching a double in each of his past four starts. The shortstop will carry a career-best .777 OPS into Monday's series opener versus the Padres.

August 21, 2019 05:04 AM
Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Hot August continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ahmed went 1-for-2 with a walk, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 8-7 win over Colorado.

Ahmed's perfectly mediocre season has exploded this month. He's slashing .351/.415/.807 with seven homers, 18 RBI and 14 runs scored over 17 games in August. Tuesday's round-tripper was his 17th of the season and established a new benchmark for the shortstop.
