Diamondbacks struggling to fill in void at third base
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale knew his team wasn't going to go the entire season without an injury. But the skipper was hoping to avoid the issue he currently has at third base, according to AZCentral.com.
With Jake Lamb on the disabled list with a foot injury, Aaron Hill and Yasmany Tomas have struggled to put it together, combining for a .559 OPS in the last five games.
"Yeah, that's huge," Hale said. "You're going to have injuries all year. There's going to be a multitude of them for every team. If you can't make the adjustment — if guys can't come in and fill the void — then you're going to be in trouble as a club."
Tomas is hitting .286 in 14 at-bats this season while Hill is scuffling along at .156 in 45 at-bats.
Diamondbacks move Mark Trumbo to the bench Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/15) Diamondbacks right fielder Mark Trumbo is on the bench for Saturday's game against the Pirates, with Ender Inciarte moving to right field and David Peralta taking over in left, the team announced.
Trumbo had started four consecutive games for Arizona and will get the day off. Also out of the lineup Saturday is Yasmany Tomas, moving Aaron Hill back to third base. Tomas has started two games at third since being called up and is hitting .400 in 10 at-bats. Cliff Pennington also replaces Nick Ahmed at shortstop, who started the last nine games in a row.
The Diamondbacks are currently the underdogs (+120) against Pittsburgh.
Aaron Hill returns to 3B, Ender Inciarte moved to LF for D-Backs
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) The Diamondbacks inserted Aaron Hill back at third base for Wednesday's contest against the Rangers. Hill will bat in the No. 5 hole, while Ender Inciarte will play in left field and bat in the leadoff spot. Yasmany Tomas received the night off.
Arizona is favored (-113) at home against Texas.
Foot injury lands Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb on 15-day DL
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday due to a left foot stress reaction, the team announced.
Lamb has started a team-high eight games at third base. Aaron Hill and Yasmany Tomas could see time at third base in Lamb's absence. Hill has started five times at third base and Tomas drew his first start at the hot corner Tuesday.
Lamb heads to the disabled list with a .414 average, one triple, one home run, three doubles and nine RBI in 10 games.
Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb, Tuffy Gosewisch out of lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb and catcher Tuffy Gosewisch are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Lamb batted second Saturday for the first time this season but is out of the lineup Sunday for just the second time in his last eight games. Gosewisch started eight of the last nine games behind the plate. With both players on the bench, the Diamondbacks will bat third baseman Aaron Hill fifth and catcher Jordan Pacheco sixth.
The Diamondbacks are underdogs (+125) in San Francisco Sunday.
|2014 summary: Aaron Hill's career has been marked by inconsistency, and after two seasons with good production, the 10-year veteran took another nosedive in 2014. Part of Hill's problems stemmed from a career-high strikeout rate (18.4 percent of at-bats), and he lacked power when he did make contact, hitting just 10 home runs and 26 doubles. Hill's lackluster performance earned him a 20th-place finish among second basemen in Fantasy points.|
Playing time status: Hill was left out of the Diamondbacks starting lineup for 18 of his final 42 games before having his season ended in late September with a dislocated pinkie. He should see regular playing time at either second or third base, but he may not be a lock to start 150 games.
2015 outlook: If Hill bounces back from a tough year, he would certainly be worth starting in standard mixed leagues because 20-homer hitters aren't easy to find at second base. However, Hill's floor is as considerable as his ceiling, and there is too much risk involved in reaching for him in the middle rounds. If you wait on drafting a second baseman, taking a late-round flier on Hill is a great move.
