The Arizona Diamondbacks moved third baseman Eric Chavez from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list Sunday to free up room on the 40-man roster for shortstop Nick Ahmed, who was called up from Triple-A Reno.

Chavez has been hampered by a left knee injury all season and was placed on the DL back on June 8. The 17-year veteran was hitting .246 (17-for-69) with three home runs and eight RBI. The six-time Gold Glove winner had started 10 games at third base.

According to's Steve Gilbert, Chavez has thought about retirement.

"It's a possibility," he said. "I'm never going to say never. For some reason I have this personal rule that when guys retire you've got to be away from the game for two years before you officially say you retired. Because there's too many that come back."

Ahmed made his Major League debut Sunday in a 2-1 loss to the San Diego Padres, going 1-for-3.
