Without Pennington, infielder Chris Owings is the only player on the Diamondbacks’ bench with shortstop experience behind starter Nick Ahmed. Manager Chip Hale said Owings could get a start at short next week to give Ahmed a day off. Minniti said second baseman Aaron Hill could be used at short in an emergency.

Romak is most comfortable at third, but could also play first, second and the outfield. He played in 15 games for the Dodgers in 2014 and had 23 plate appearances. Hale said he could provide a jolt off the bench.


“He can hit it hard,” Hale said. “He’s a professional hitter. He’s a gritty guy. He’s what we’re looking for: He’s a winner.”

Romak was en route to Phoenix prior to Saturday’s matchup with the Cincinnati Reds
