NICK AHMED RUMORS & GOSSIP

When played right, D-backs have fun on defense

PHOENIX -- Pitching is sporadic and even the best hitters run into slumps or a dominant opposing hurler. But the Diamondbacks expect to play solid, above-average defense on a consistent basis. That is part of what was so frustrating about the weekend sweep at the hands of the Giants. The D-backs committed a pair of errors in the series and just weren't as crisp as they would have...

Questionable judgement call costs the Pirates

The Pittsburgh Pirates lost a game in extra innings yesterday when a double play was broken up when Nick Ahmed threw up his arm and deflected a throw that might have been an inning ending double play. In the judgement of the umpires, the runner did not intentionally interfere with the play. I find that ruling a bit spurious.Here is the play:Your browser does not support iframes...

Show of hand: All but Pirates like Ahmed's slide

PHOENIX -- Nick Ahmed had two responsibilities on the final play Sunday -- stay at first base long enough not to get picked off and get to second quickly enough to disrupt a potential double play. He was 2-for-2. Ahmed helped the D-backs to the weirdest walk-off in franchise history when he was struck on the left forearm with a throw to break up a double play as Tuffy Gosewisch scored...

Fortunately there is one position where the Diamondbacks have a surplus of trade assets. They have three young shortstops that scouts have been drooling over. Two of them, Didi Gregorious and Chris Owings, have a major league resume...

D-backs future is here in Ahmed and others

SAN DIEGO -- The Diamondbacks are learning more about their future every day, probably the best way to play it since the present has not been much fun. The latest injection of young talent came Sunday, when shortstop Nick Ahmed was summoned from the minor leagues as a likely short-term replacement for Chris Owings, who became the 12th D-back to hit the disabled list this season. ...
