Diamondbacks purchased the contract of OF/1B Danny Dorn from Triple-A Reno.

Dorn was off to a torrid start this season in the minor leagues, slashing .474/.500/.789 with two home runs and eight RBI in 10 games for Reno. But the 30-year-old probably won't get enough playing time in the crowded Arizona outfield to warrant fantasy attention.

Diamondbacks prospect Danny Dorn is off to a booming start for Triple-A Reno, leading all Pacific League hitters with a .474 average.

He's made sensational contact this year, striking out just three times in 38 at-bats. Dorn's next at-bat will be the 3,293rd of his minor league career. The 29-year-old is still searching for his first trip to the show, and it might come soon if he keeps this up.
