PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed infielder Chris Owings on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder strain and selected the contract of infielder Nick Ahmed from Triple-A Reno.

Arizona also transferred third baseman Eric Chavez to the 60-day disabled list with a sprained left knee.

Owings is batting .277 with six homers and 21 RBIs in 72 games, including 61 at shortstop.

Ahmed will be making his first appearance in the majors after hitting .324 with two homers and 36 RBIs in 79 games with Reno. He was acquired with infielder Martin Prado in a 2013 trade that sent outfielder Justin Upton to Atlanta.

Chavez has been on disabled list since June 9.

Arizona made the moves before Sunday's game at San Diego.
