SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Arizona Diamondbacks utility player Willie Bloomquist will start the season on the disabled list.

The team says an MRI on Wednesday showed a grade 2 right oblique strain. There is no timetable for his return.

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 centre 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.

Bloomquist was on the disabled list from Aug. 11-31 last season with a lower back strain. His only appearance after Aug. 9 was a pinch-hit single on Sept. 3.
