Diamondbacks' Drew Ellis: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Thursday.

Ellis has done very little with his 83 major-league plate appearances this season, hitting .130/.277/.203. He'll head to the minors as the Diamondbacks clear a spot for Seth Beer.

Diamondbacks' Drew Ellis: Working in short-side platoon role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers.

After starting at third base three times in a four-game stretch last week, Ellis will be on the bench for the third straight contest Wednesday. It's worth noting that each of the righty-hitting Ellis' previous three starts came versus left-handed pitchers, so he looks like he'll fill the short side of a platoon at the hot corner with the lefty-hitting Josh VanMeter now that Asdrubal Cabrera is no longer on the roster.

Diamondbacks' Drew Ellis: Playing regularly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis started at second base and went 1-for-2 with a run scored in Friday's 9-4 loss to Colorado. He was also hit by a pitch.

Ellis started for the seventh time over the last nine games, showing up at second and third base, despite not doing very much at the plate. The 25-year-old infielder is 4-for-22 (.182) during that stretch and batting .136 with a .460 OPS overall. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo will give at-bats to young players like Ellis, who has not been as productive as Josh Rojas, Josh VanMeter or Pavin Smith.

Diamondbacks' Drew Ellis: Blasts first career home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 7-0 win over the Padres.

Ellis slammed his first MLB long ball off Joe Musgrove in the first inning to give the Diamondbacks a five-run lead. The rookie recently got called up July 30 to replace Eduardo Escobar. He is slashing .129/.250/.226 with one home run, four RBI and four runs scored in 36 plate appearances. He has yet to record multiple hits in a game.

Diamondbacks' Drew Ellis: Gets chance at third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis started at third base Wednesday and went 0-for-4 in a 7-1 loss to the Giants.

The Eduardo Escobar trade created an opportunity for Ellis, who has started three of the last four games at the hot corner. The 25-year-old had a hit in his first major league at-bat -- a pinch-hit single -- but he's gone hitless over the next 13 plate appearances.

Diamondbacks' Drew Ellis: Starts at third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis started at third base and went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Saturday's 8-3 loss to the Dodgers.

This was Ellis' first start in the majors and second appearance after his contract was selected by Arizona on Friday. The Diamondbacks may trot out a variety of names -- some familiar, some less so -- at multiple positions over the final months of the season. After Eduardo Escobar was traded to Milwaukee, opportunities at third base are available. Since the trade, Asdrubal Cabrera and now Ellis have manned the hot corner.

Diamondbacks' Drew Ellis: Called up by Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis' contract was selected by the Diamondbacks on Friday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

The 25-year-old doesn't have any noteworthy tool beyond his plus raw power, but he's performed well at the Triple-A level this season, hitting .286/.396/.554 with 13 homers in 65 games for Reno. He's primarily played third base, with the occasional start at first and second.

Diamondbacks' Drew Ellis: Trims strikeout rate at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis is slashing .210/.290/.452 with three home runs and 11 RBI across 69 plate appearances with High-A Visalia this season.

The batting average and on-base percentage aren't anything special for Ellis, but the third baseman's power has always been his main allure as a dynasty prospect. With nine extra-base hits already on his ledger, Ellis isn't disappointing on that front, and he's also displayed some early growth in terms of his plate approach. Ellis' strikeout rate sits at a manageable 13 percent, down more than eight points from the mark he posted at short-season Hillsboro in 2017.
