Arizona traded John McDonald because of a middle infield logjam, but now the Diamondbacks will be without Willie Bloomquist after placing him on the disabled list with an oblique injury.

Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports that Bloomquist has a Grade 2 strain and there’s no timetable for his return. Based on backdating the DL stint the earliest he could come back is April 11.

Even without the injury he’d have had a very hard time repeating last year’s production, but Bloomquist was actually pretty valuable for the Diamondbacks while hitting .302 with a .724 OPS in 80 games. It was the first season of his 11-year career with an OPS above .700.

For all of their hard-nosed grit the Diamondbacks sure have a lot of injuries already.

    …and this guy has a -6 G.A.R. Not very gritty Mr. Bloomquist. Not. At. All.

    If you ever played All-Star Baseball 2000 on the N64, and started a franchise with a fantasy draft…..you always ended up with Willie Bloomquist.

    And Brian Schneider at Catcher.

    And Endy Chavez.

      Goddammit….

      Now I may actually have to go play All Star Baseball.

      Willie Bloomquist deserves a 30 HR season!

      But one thing is for damn sure….when Pudge Rodriguez comes up, you bean that asshole.

      No matter where you pitch him, he’s hitting a homerun.

      I think his mom was one of the programmers or something.

        His character had the same code that Edgar Martinez had in “Tony LaRussa Baseball”. Impossible to pitch to.

        Hang on….I gotta pitch to Jon Nunnally, Left Fielder for the San Fransisco Giants….

        Dude can RAKE for a lanky white guy….
