Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Makes spring debut
Ahmed went 1-for-3 in Monday's spring game against the Royals.
Ahmed made his Cactus League debut after missing a week due to forearm tightness. He struck out in his first two plate appearances before singling his third time through. His return to game action kicks off shortstop watch in camp. Ahmed, who turns 33 next week, and the 23-year-old Geraldo Perdomo will share the position, though it's unclear how the playing time will be divided.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Ready to go Monday
Ahmed (forearm) is starting at shortstop and batting sixth Monday versus the Royals.
Ahmed will make his spring training debut Monday after experiencing some inflammation in his right forearm, forcing him to miss the first week-and-a-half of action. The 32-year-old only played in 17 games last season while dealing with injury, producing a .231 average with three homers, seven RBI and seven runs scored over 52 at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Could start Monday
Ahmed (forearm) will most likely start at shortstop Monday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Monday would be Ahmed's debut after he missed the first week-and-a-half of Cactus League action with a forearm/wrist injury. He entered camp coming off shoulder surgery, but that was not considered a major issue prior to the latest injury.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Experiencing forearm tightness
Ahmed (shoulder) will miss the next five days with inflammation in his left forearm, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
The Diamondbacks planned to delay Ahmed's game participation this spring in deference to the shoulder surgery he underwent last year, but it looks like a new condition has cropped up. The shortstop is now experiencing inflammation in his forearm, for which he received a cortisone shot. There's no reason to believe Ahmed will miss extended time, but the new injury gives manager Torey Lovullo an opportunity to evaluate depth at the position, including Geraldo Perdomo, who was expected to battle Ahmed for the starting job this spring....

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Won't play in spring opener
Ahmed (shoulder) will not play in the Diamondbacks' Cactus League opener Saturday, Theo Mackie of the Arizona Republic reports.
It's merely a precautionary measure as Ahmed completes his recovery from the shoulder surgery he underwent last June. He has been throwing without issue so far in camp, but the Diamondbacks want him to build up a bit more power and endurance before exposing his surgically repaired right arm to live competition. There's no current worry about his readiness for the start of the 2023 regular season.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: OK for spring training
Ahmed (shoulder) is expected to be ready for the start of spring training, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Ahmed told Piecoro he's been swinging "full go" for about a month, and that he's making progress in his throwing program. The shortstop missed the second half of the 2022 season after undergoing season-ending surgery in June to fix a labrum tear and two bone spurs in his right shoulder. Assuming good health, he'll likely open the 2023 season as the Diamondbacks' starting shortstop, but his lack of offensive upside severely limits his potential fantasy output.... See More ...

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Done for the year
Ahmed underwent shoulder surgery June 15 and will miss the remainder of the season, Nick Piecoro of Arizona Republic reports.
Ahmed has been dealing with shoulder issues since late in the 2021 season but put off surgery as long as possible. Non-invasive treatments provided ephemeral relief, so the shortstop eventually agreed to undergo surgery. Geraldo Perdomo will hold down shortstop for the rest of the season.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Requires surgery
Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Monday that Ahmed will undergo surgery on his right shoulder, Theo Mackie of the Arizona Republic reports.
Ahmed missed the start of the season with a shoulder issue and was only able to return for 17 games before heading back to the injured list. His issue evidently won't go away without surgery, and the Diamondbacks are merely hopeful that he'll be able to return this season. Expect Geraldo Perdomo to handle shortstop for most of the rest of the year and potentially the entire campaign.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Shifts to 60-day IL
The Diamondbacks transferred Ahmed to the 60-day injured list Wednesday while he contends with right shoulder inflammation.
Ahmed was initially deactivated May 17 without the Diamondbacks applying an injury designation, an indication that he was out for COVID-19-related protocols. He resumed baseball activities just over a week later, but he was recently shut down after experiencing renewed discomfort in his shoulder. Ahmed opened the season on the IL on account of a shoulder problem and dealt with the issue late in 2021, so the Diamondbacks may have decided a prolonged shutdown was the best option to allow the inflammation to subside. Geraldo Perdomo now appears poised to serve as Arizona's everyday shortstop through the All-Star break while Ahmed is on the shelf.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Facing shutdown
Manager Torey Lovullo said Friday that Ahmed will be shut down after dealing with some right shoulder soreness during his rehab, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports.
Ahmed has been on the COVID-19 injured list since May 17, but he was cleared to play in extended spring training games this week. However, he's apparently dealing with a shoulder issue and will meet with Dr. Neal ElAttrache to determine the next steps in his rehab process. It's not yet clear when the 32-year-old will be able to rejoin the Diamondbacks, but Geraldo Perdomo should continue to serve as the team's primary shortstop in Ahmed's absence.... See More ...

Ahmed (undisclosed) is expected to play in two games at extended spring training this week, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Executes light activity
Ahmed (undisclosed) resumed light baseball activity May 27, Jack Sommers of MLB.com reports.
Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Ahmed is still dealing with fatigue, while the shortstop said he's "responded OK from" taking batting practice, fielding light groundballs and playing catch. "It hit me quick and hard," Ahmed said of the virus. "I've been trying to recover since. I'm still not back to normal yet, unfortunately." Geraldo Perdomo is the primary starter at shortstop while Ahmed works his way back.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Lands on IL
Ahmed was placed on the injured list Monday for an undisclosed reason, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said Ahmed's "shoulder is feeling fine," despite recent news that it flared up in recent days, and stressed it's not the reason the shortstop landed on the IL. So, if it's not the shoulder, then it could be COVID-related. Geraldo Perdomo is expected to see the bulk of the playing time at short while Ahmed is sidelined.... See More ... See Less

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Still feeling shoulder discomfort
Arizona manager Torey Lovullo cited Ahmed's "cranky" right shoulder for the decision to hold him out of Friday's starting lineup, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Ahmed was in Saturday's lineup, going 1-for-3 with an RBI, but it sounds like the shoulder is and will be an ongoing issue. "My shoulder doesn't feel perfect, but I'm going to try to keep playing through it as long as I can," Ahmed said. "That's kind of all I have to say." Ahmed, who missed the first two weeks of the regular season, returned with a bang, going 8-for-23 with three home runs over his first seven games played. Since then, he's gone 3-for-26 with eight strikeouts, looking much like the same hitter we saw 2021, when he finished with a .224/.280/.339 slash line.... See More ... See Less

Ahmed isn't starting Friday against the Cubs.
Ahmed has hit just .091 with three runs, two RBI, two walks and six strikeouts over his last seven games, and he'll take a seat for the third time in the last four matchups. Geraldo Perdomo will start at shortstop and bat ninth.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Fighting slump
Ahmed went 1-for-2 with two walks, an RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-3 win over Miami.
Ahmed returned to the lineup after a one-day breather and delivered one of three two-out RBIs during Arizona's four-run third inning. It was just his second hit over the last 24 at-bats. The shortstop was scalding when he first came off the injury list, notching three home runs and two doubles while hitting .348 over his first 23 at-bats, but he has gone the other way since....

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Not starting Wednesday

Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Average sinking
Ahmed went 0-for-3 in Friday's 4-1 win over the Rockies.
Ahmed initially tore it up after being activated off the injury list, going 8-for-23 (.348) with three home runs, but he's now hitless over 13 consecutive at-bats and hitting .235. He remains the team's primary shortstop, but there will be a rotation of sorts among four players in the infield. Josh Rojas and Geraldo Perdomo can play three positions, while Ahmed and second baseman Ketel Marte will get occasional days off to maintain health.... See More ... See Less
