|Diamondbacks going with platoon at third base for now |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(11:55 am ET) Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers has announced that the deal that shipped Martin Prado to the Yankees has Jordan Pacheco and Cliff Pennington set to platoon at third base.
Pacheco will handle the duties until Pennington returns from a thumb injury. He owns a .259/.312/.376 stat line and has yet to go deep this season.

|Cliff Pennington has successful thumb surgery |

(6/4/14) Diamondbacks shortstop Cliff Pennington underwent successful surgery to repair a torn ligament in his thumb, the team announced.

|Cliff Pennington will require surgery on thumb |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/3/14) Diamondbacks infielder Cliff Pennington will require surgery to repair ligament damage in his left thumb, the Arizona Republic reports Tuesday.
Manager Kirk Gibson said Pennington will miss up to two months as a result of the procedure, though it is not yet clear when he will go under the knife. Pennington was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday.
|Diamondbacks place Cliff Pennington on DL |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(6/3/14) The Diamondbacks put shortstop Cliff Pennington on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained ligament in his left thumb. He's hitting .243 with no homers and six RBI in 74 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.
