Player Notes
Nick Ahmed went 2-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

Advice: Ahmed also drove in a run with a sixth-inning single. The stolen base was Ahmed's third of the spring, and he's now scored nine runs in Cactus League action. With Chris Owings sidelined early, Ahmed had plenty of time to make a good impression and he has done just that. The shortstop is hitting .319 and has moved into position to be the team's Opening Day starter with just a few games left in spring.

MLB.com's Steve Gilbert writes that "it certainly seems" Nick Ahmed could be the Diamondbacks' starter at shortstop.

Advice: MLB Network's Peter Gammons reported earlier Monday that manager Chip Hale "has made it clear" Ahmed would start at short. Hale denied that anything has been decided but also didn't shoot down the possibility. "To name him the starter is hard to do, because we still have camp left," Hale said. "I'm not ready to do that. He's been very impressive. [Gammons] was assuming because of the way we were glowing about [Ahmed]." General manager Dave Stewart also said Monday that Chris Owings is "going to be a starter" if he's healthy. It's been presumed that his position would be shortstop, but it's possible he could play second base and Aaron Hill could move to third, bumping Yasmany Tomas to the outfield (or the minors). Ahmed's apparent rise could be bad news for Jake Lamb's chances at capturing the third base job.
