D-backs Vs. Padres: Justin Upton Sits, Willie Bloomquist Has Setback, Starting Lineups

The Arizona Diamondbacks open a three-game series with the San Diego Padres, but they will do so without Justin Upton. He is out of the lineup, being held out one more game with his hamstring injury. Upton said he feels good, but manager Kirk Gibson insisted that he take another day.

Infielder Willie Bloomquist was eligible to come off the disabled list, but Gibson said "he didn't feel that good when he played" last night. Bloomquist was placed on the disabled list with back issues. "It's not bad like it was," Gibson explained. "But yet it isn't stiff-free, so I'm not going to rush him back."

Since the team has two shortstops on the roster in John McDonald and Jake Elmore, they are not hurting in that sense.

Here are starting lineups for tonight:


  1. Chris Denorfia, RF
  2. Logan Forsythe, 2B
  3. Chase Headley, 3B
  4. Carlos Quentin, LF
  5. Yasmani Grandal, C
  6. Yonder Alonso, 1B
  7. Cameron Maybin, CF
  8. Everth Cabrera, SS
  9. Eric Stults, P


  1. Chris Young, CF
  2. Aaron Hill, 2B
  3. Jason Kubel, LF
  4. Paul Goldschmidt, 1B
  5. Miguel Montero, C
  6. Chris Johnson, 3B
  7. Gerardo Parra, RF
  8. Jake Elmore, SS
  9. Patrick Corbin, P
