PHOENIX -- D-backs third baseman Eric Chavez was scratched from Tuesday's starting lineup with stiffness in his right hip.

Chavez had been slated to play third base and hit fourth, but the club made the move after batting practice.

Martin Prado moved from left field to third base and Jason Kubel was inserted into the lineup in left field.

Chavez was on the disabled list from May 31 until June 28 with an oblique strain.
