  • Nick Ahmed Returns To Lineup Monday

    Arizona Diamondbacks shortstop Nick Ahmed (forearm) is back in the Cactus League lineup on Monday against the Kansas City Royals, starting at shortstop and batting sixth in the lineup. This will be Ahmed's spring debut after he missed some time in camp with right forearm inflammation. The 32-year-old veteran was limited to just 17 games in 2022, mostly due to a shoulder injury that eventually required season-ending surgery. Ahmed is expected to battle with Geraldo Perdomo for the starting job at the 6 in spring training. If Ahmed wins the job, he'll only be relevant in NL-only leagues, as he's not much to look at offensively. In his nine big-league seasons (all with Arizona), he has a .236/.290/.382 slash line with a .672 OPS, 68 home runs, 305 RBI and 36 stolen bases in 816 games played.

  • Nick Ahmed Out Five Days With Forearm Injury

    Arizona Diamondbacks shortstop Nick Ahmed (forearm) will be out for at least the next five days with tightness/inflammation in his left forearm. There's no reason to believe he'll miss an extended period of time, but he was given a cortisone injection to reduce the inflammation. Ahmed has missed time each of the last three years since he jammed his right shoulder diving for a ball in 2020. He played in only 17 games in 2022 before having surgery on his shoulder. Geraldo Perdomo saw most of the starts at the 6 in Ahmed's absence last year, and the two are expected to battle for playing time this spring. Arizona also has Diego Castillo and Blaze Alexander that can play the position if Ahmed misses significant time again in 2023.
