Dodgers place Erisbel Arruebarrena on 15-day DL with right hip flexor strain, recall Carlos Triunfel

DENVER -- The Dodgers on Sunday placed shortstop Erisbel Arruebarrena on the 15-day disabled list with a right hip flexor strain, and recalled infielder Carlos Triunfel from Triple-A Albuquerque before their series finale against the Rockies at Coors Field.

Arruebarrena last played during Friday's game, in which he played the final five innings at shortstop and went 1-for-3 at the plate after Hanley Ramirez was hit by a pitch on his left hand during the fifth inning.

Arruebarrena was recalled from Albuquerque before Thursday's game and filled in for Ramirez on defense to close out each of the first two games of the series. Ramirez on Saturday played all nine innings at shortstop for the first time in 13 games, since June 22.

On the season, Arruebarrena is 5-for-16 with a double and a walk in his two major league stints, hitting .313/.353/.375. He hit .208/.252/.302 in 25 games with Double-A Chattanooga, and .357/.410/.457 in 20 games with Triple-A Albuquerque.

Triunfel played in two games with the Isotopes after getting optioned on Thursday, but was pulled after three innings on Saturday. He is 2-for-13 with a home run in 10 games with the Dodgers this season, hitting .154/.154/.385. He has played nine games at shortstop, including four starts.

Miguel Rojas starts at shortstop on Sunday for the Dodgers, with Hanley Ramirez getting a day off.

Rockies roster move

Colorado also made a roster move before the game. Nick Masset, who faced the first four of seven straight Dodgers batters to reach base in a five-run seventh inning rally on Saturday, was placed on the 15-day disabled list. The Rockies recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs Brooks Brown, a 29-year-old reliever who in his first appearance will make his major league debut. Brown was 1-0 with a 4.35 ERA in 31 games in Triple-A, with 35 strikeouts and 16 walks in 39⅓ innings.
