With Ender Inciarte going on the 15-day disabled list, the Arizona Diamondbacks needed to fill a roster spot. According to Zach Buchanan at azcentral.com, that player is Danny Dorn who saw time in 12 games earlier this season for the D’backs.
As Chip Hale said yesterday, he doesn’t think that Inciarte should be out for very long. This was more of a precautionary move in that the team just wants to rest him and get him back at 100% instead of starting and stopping him. It seems as though once June 30th rolls around, Inciarte will be activated and a corresponding move will have to be made.
We are not sure how much playing time Dorn is going to get in what in all likelihood will be a brief stay with the D’backs. Here are three things about him that should get fans excited to see him get some at-bats.
