Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that Yankees and Rays are showing interest in Nick Ahmed.
The Padres have also previously shown interest in Ahmed. All three landing spots make sense, as the Yankees' (Didi Gregorius) and Rays' (Matt Duffy) starting shortstop will begin the season on the disabled list and the Padres have an open competition at the position. Ahmed is a career .221/.268/.329 hitter and had season-ending hip surgery last August, but he's a slick fielder and has looked healthy this spring. Mar 21 - 10:24 PM

According to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, the Diamondbacks are willing to listen to trade offers on shortstop Nick Ahmed.

The D'Backs are dealing with a very crowded middle infield situation, so dealing away Ahmed seems to make sense. He has proven his health this spring following hip surgery and is a very skilled defender both at shortstop and at second base.

Diamondbacks activated SS Nick Ahmed from the 60-day disabled list.

Nick Ahmed will undergo season-ending hip surgery next week.

His surgery will be performed by Dr. Marc Philippon in Vail, Colorado. The 26-year-old will close out his 2016 season with a .218 average over 284 at-bats. With Ahmed done for the year, shortstop duties will be split between Chris Owings and Jean Segura.

A second opinion on Nick Ahmed's injured right hip confirmed the initial diagnosis.

That initial diagnosis was a hip impingement. Ahmed traveled to New York on Tuesday for a visit with a specialist and is expected to receive a cortisone injection to help expedite the recovery process. He has been on the 15-day disabled list since July 23 and probably won't be ready until sometime in late August.

Nick Ahmed (hip) is scheduled to visit a specialist in New York early next week.

The hope is that he will have a rehab plan coming out of that exam. Ahmed was placed on the disabled list July 23 with a right hip impingement and currently has no timetable for activation. Chris Owings has been the primary fill-in at shortstop for Arizona.

Diamondbacks placed INF Nick Ahmed on the 15-day disabled list with a right hip impingement.

Ahmed may have been expendable anyways with Chris Owings returning from the disabled list. He was hitting just .218/.265/.299 with a 58/15 K/BB ratio in 284 at-bats with the Diamondbacks before suffering the hip injury.

Nick Ahmed went 3-for-4 with a triple, a double and two runs scored against the Marlins on Friday.

The triple, his first of the year, was misplayed by Marcell Ozuna in center and really should have been ruled a double and an error. Still, it was a nice night for the light-hitting shortstop. He entered the game at .207/.264/.299 on the season.

Nick Ahmed (head) is in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Pirates.

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said late Tuesday that Nick Ahmed seems fine.

Ahmed was grazed on the chin by an Arquimedes Caminero pitch on Tuesday night, an inning after Caminero struck Jean Segura on the side of the batting helmet. Segura is being treated for a concussion at a hospital in Pittsburgh, but Ahmed apparently escaped anything serious. He does have some minor cuts on his chin.
