With shortstop Nick Ahmed back from the injured list, the Diamondbacks will have fewer at-bats to go around on their infield, and for now it appears the player who will most feel the squeeze is infielder Josh Rojas. Rojas had appeared to win the lion’s share of at-bats at second base during a monster spring training, and he wound up playing nearly every day during the season’s first week due to Ahmed’s injury.
PHOENIX – Starting pitcher Luke Weaver flirted with a perfect game and gave the D-backs the team’s first series win of the year along with a much-needed quality start in a 7-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds at home on Sunday. The results are kind of agreeing with the way I felt,” Weaver said of his day. I guess ultimately it felt really good to be able to go out there and do that.
Condensed Game: Luke Weaver no-hit the Reds through 6 1/3 innings while David Peralta and Eduardo Escobar each homered in the D-backs' win
