Ahmed (hand) had three pins placed in his hand Wednesday, and will miss 6-to-8 weeks.
This moved Ahmed's expected return date into mid-August after the infielder suffered a small fracture in his right hand during Tuesday's game. Ahmed was struck by a pitch and he will have an extended absence away from the field while he recovers. The team called up shortstop Ketel Marte from Triple-A Reno to provide infield depth for the time being. There will likely be a clear timetable for his return by the end of the All-Star break.
Ahmed (hand) was officially put on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday.
Ahmed suffered a small fracture in his right hand when he was hit by a pitch during Tuesday's contest. It is unclear how much time the infielder will miss, but it's likely that he won't be ready to come back until after the All-Star break. In his place, the Diamondbacks called up Ketel Marte from Triple-A Reno.
Manager Torey Lovullo said Ahmed has a small fracture in his right hand but will undergo further tests.
Ahmed left Tuesday's game after he was hit by a pitch, and subsequent evaluations confirmed the difficult scenario. A trip to the disabled list appears to be on the horizon for the backup shortstop, meaning Daniel Descalso will assume that duty behind regular starter Chris Owings. Expect Ahmed to return sometime after the All-Star break, depending on what trainers deem to be the best course of recovery.
Ahmed exited Tuesday's game against the Cardinals early after being hit by a pitch in the wrist/forearm area, Jack Magruder of FanRagSports.com reports.
Ahmed was 0-for-3 at the plate before being removed from the game in the bottom of the eighth inning after being pelted by a 99 MPH fastball from Trevor Rosenthal. Ahmed will likely undergo testing Wednesday, at which point we'll receive word on the severity of his injury.
Ahmed went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer, a walk and two runs against the Rockies on Wednesday.
He got his piece of Arizona's 16-run Coors Field explosion by hitting his first homer since May 31. This was only Ahmed's ninth start among the team's 17 games in June, and he'd been awfully quiet over the prior eight. Most of his numbers are sitting at personal bests right now, but that doesn't mean they do much for fantasy owners except in deep formats.
