|Cliff Pennington takes paternity leave |
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(9/9/13) Diamondbacks shortstop Cliff Pennington will go on paternity leave for the next three games, the Arizona Republic reports. Pennington is expected to return to the club for Friday's game against Colorado.
|Diamondbacks have plethora of shortstop options |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(9/1/13) The return of Willie Bloomquist after missing nearly two months with a broken bone in his hand has created a logjam at shortstop for Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson. Bloomquist's return means Gibson has a three-man rotation at shortstop, which also includes Didi Gregorius and Cliff Pennington.
"I’ll rotate the guys somewhat," Gibson said, per The Arizona Republic. "We didn’t score any runs (Friday) night, and I think Willie is probably the best shortstop we have, the most offensive. He puts the bat on the ball and allows us to do stuff."
The situation could even become more crowded if the Diamondbacks choose to bring up prospect Chris Owings, who was named MVP of the Pacific Coast League (Triple-A).
"He’s earned it, and he’s got a pretty good future ahead of him," Gibson said of Owings. "He’s going to fit in there somewhere, sometime, some way, somehow."

|Cliff Pennington still not ready to return |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/9/13) Diamondbacks shortstop Cliff Pennington was held out of Friday's lineup against the Mets as he continues to be bothered by a foot injury.
Pennington was hit in the foot by a pitch Saturday and has not played since. He is hitting .239/.302/.305 with one home run and 17 RBI in 226 at-bats.
|The Diamondbacks acquired Cliff Pennington in October 2012 as part of a three-team trade involving the A's -- Pennington's former employer -- and the Marlins. Pennington opened the 2013 season as Arizona's starting shortstop, but he was quickly supplanted by prospect Didi Gregorius and by May he settled into a role as a utility middle infielder. Pennington, who averaged 143 appearances from 2010-12, appeared in 96 games last season, batting .242 with one home run, 13 doubles and 18 RBI. Pennington will have dual-eligibility (2B, SS) entering 2014, but that won't help his Fantasy value much. He's nothing more than a reserve option in the deepest of NL-only Fantasy leagues.
