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

Ahmed had his season come to an end in September when he was hit by a pitch and fractured his right wrist. He's arbitration-eligible this winter.

Nick Ahmed will undergo surgery to repair a fractured right wrist.

The initial thought was that Ahmed would not need surgery and could potentially return for the postseason, but his year is officially over now. He'll be arbitration-eligible this winter.

X-rays have revealed that Nick Ahmed suffered a fractured right wrist when he was hit by a pitch during a rehab game with Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

It's the same hand that he broke back in late June, which sent him to the disabled list in the first place. Ahmed had been expected to be activated later this week, but now he's done for the regular season. It's possible he'll heal in time to make it back for the postseason if the Diamondbacks make it.

Nick Ahmed was pulled from a rehab game Sunday at Triple-A Reno after getting hit on the hand in his third plate appearance.

He homered in his second plate appearance. That was supposed to be the final rehab game for Ahmed, but his return to the Diamondbacks' active roster might now be delayed. The 27-year-old infielder has been on the shelf since late June.

Nick Ahmed (hand) went 0-for-2 with a walk in his first rehab game with the Diamondbacks' Arizona League affiliate on Saturday.

Ahmed is working his way back from a fractured right hand, which he suffered back in late June. Ketel Marte has played well at shortstop with both Ahmed and Chris Owings (finger) out, but he could slide over to second base when Ahmed returns.

Diamondbacks transferred SS Nick Ahmed from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The D'Backs needed to clear a 40-man roster spot after a couple trades. Ahmed will be eligible to return from a fractured hand in late August.

Diamondbacks placed SS Nick Ahmed on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured right hand.

Ahmed sustained a small fracture in his right hand after being hit by a pitch in Tuesday's game against the Cardinals. Ketel Marte has been called up and should see the bulk of work at shortstop moving forward, with Chris Owings likely to take on more work in the outfield. Ahmed is expected to miss about two months of action.

Nick Ahmed was diagnosed with a small fracture in his right hand after being hit by a pitch Tuesday.

With a DL stint on the way for Ahmed, it looks like Ketel Marte will get a shot in Arizona, which will probably lead to more outfield time for Chris Owings.

Nick Ahmed was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Cardinals after being hit on the right hand by a pitch.

Ahmed was plunked by a Trevor Rosenthal fastball, which isn't ideal. He left the game pretty quickly and went straight to the clubhouse, where he's surely going to undergo X-rays.

Nick Ahmed went 3-for-4 with a triple and two RBI in a win over the Marlins on Thursday.

Not only did he account for three of the game's 11 hits combined, but he came through with the biggest hit of the evening when he slapped a Brad Ziegler pitch to right field for a two-run single in the eighth. In his last six games, Ahmed has four multi-hit games with six RBI and four runs scored. In what's shaping up to be his best offensive season yet, the 27-year-old is hitting .283/.317/.475 overall.

Nick Ahmed belted two solo home runs in four at-bats in Saturday's loss against the Pirates.

Ahmed isn't known for his power, but he is slashing a very respectable .268/.316/.479. He is known for his defense more than his bat, and as long as Chris Owings and Brandon Drury continue to stay healthy Ahmed will be a reserve. As such, his fantasy appeal is rather minimal despite an uptick in his power numbers lately.

Nick Ahmed went 2-for-3 with a homer and an intentional walk Wednesday against the Tigers.

Ahmed has a rather respectable .258/.310/.394 line at the moment, and the Diamondbacks are a significantly better defensive team when they have him at shortstop, instead of Chris Owings. Still, there's certainly no sending Owings to the bench at some point, and Brandon Drury is hitting pretty well, too. Until something changes, Ahmed probably won't be in the lineup versus righties with any regularity.

Nick Ahmed went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

Ahmed's RBI single in the eighth inning finally put the Diamondbacks on the board. They trailed 5-1 after that hit, with Ahmed later scoring on a double play to cut that lead to 5-2 (a score which would stand as the final). The 27-year-old shortstop has just three extra-base hits in 63 at-bats and holds no true fantasy value.

Nick Ahmed went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and a steal in Thursday's loss to the Padres.

Ahmed notched his seventh RBI of the young season courtesy of a second-inning RBI single against Clayton Richard. The 27-year-old shortstop is working to a .269/.296/.423 triple-slash over his first 26 at-bats of the campaign.
