Found May 31, 2013 on FF Locker Room:
Willie Bloomquist, after missing all of the 2013 season so far, has been activated from the DL after making four rehab starts for Triple-A Reno. Bloomquist will be a utility man for the D-Backs. Last year, in 338 plate appearances, Bloomquist posted a .302/.325/.398 split with 23 RBI and 7 SB. That made out for his best season to date, but his .362 BABIP suggests this was a mirage. He holds little to no fantasy value even if he finds playing time every day. He has played in more than 100 games in a season just twice in a 10 year career so far.
