Analysis: The injury, sustained in Tuesday night's game against the Los Angeles Angels, is another blow to Arizona, which figured to use Bloomquist considerably at shortstop and as a leadoff hitter after center fielder Adam Eaton went down with an arm injury that is to sideline him for six to eight weeks. Right fielder Cody Ross also is expected to start the season on the DL with a calf strain.
