Cliff Pennington 2B/SS ARI 11 Days

Pennington went 3-for-4 with four runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's thrashing of the Rockies.

Slotted second in Saturday's lineup, Pennington benefited from big days by No. 3 and 4 hitters David Peralta and Mark Trumbo, who combined for five hits and nine RBI. Given Didi Gregorius' meager numbers at shortstop this season as well as the Diamondbacks' current vacancy at third base, Pennington could find his way into regular playing time down the stretch.

Pennington went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in the Diamondbacks' 4-3 loss to the Royals on Wednesday.

Pennington (hand) was activated from the DL on Wednesday and played for the first time since June. He was batting .243 before the injury, so the 2-for-5 performance is promising off the DL. He'll likely fight with Jordan Pacheco and Andy Marte at third base for the time being.

Pennington will start at third base and bat second in his return to the lineup Wednesday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Pennington has made just two starts at third base since 2008, but he'll step in at the hot corner Wednesday and it seems he may push Jordan Pacheco and Andy Marte for playing time at the position. Although he batted just .243/.325/.324 in 33 games before suffering a broken hand in June, he can hit from both sides of the plate and is a fairly good defender.
