Report: Yankees eyeing Arizona shortstop Nick Ahmed

In the wake of Didi Gregorius‘ shoulder injury, shortstop Nick Ahmed of the Arizona Diamondbacks is generating interest from the New York Yankees.

According to AZCentral’s Nick Piecoro, the Yankees are “believed to have varying degrees of interest” in Ahmed.

Arizona has depth at the shortstop position, with Chris Owings, Ketel Marte and rising prospect Ildemaro Vargas. Owings is hitting .395 this spring with two homers, allowing the Diamondbacks to dangle other shortstops in potential trades. Ironically, Arizona is the team the Yankees acquired Gregorius from before the 2015 season.

However, GM Brian Cashman said the solution to shortstop is likely already on the Yankees’ roster. Tyler Wade, Ronald Torreyes, Ruben Tejada and maybe even Starlin Castro are all possible replacements

The 27-year-old Ahmed batted .218 with Arizona last year in 284 at-bats with four home runs and 20 RBI over 90 games.

Gregorius is expected to miss extended time in April, and could return in May.
