LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers on Sunday recalled infielder Ronald Torreyes from Triple-A Oklahoma Citybefore their series finale against the Diamondbacks at Chase Field in Phoenix. The active roster now has 35 players, including 17 pitchers.

It's a full-circle roster day, as Torreyes was acquired from the Blue Jays for cash considerations on June 12, and the Dodgers designated infielder Darwin Barney for assignment to make room. Earlier Sunday, the Dodgers traded Barney to Toronto for a player to be named later or cash.

Torreyes will wear No. 59 with the Dodgers.

Most of Torreyes' time with the Dodgers was in Double-A Tulsa, though he mixed in 13 games with Triple-A Oklahoma City in August and September then continued with OKC in the PCL playoffs. Between Double-A and Triple-A in the Dodgers system, Torreyes hit .295/.347/.406 with 15 doubles, three triples and four home runs in 75 games.

Torreyes, who turned 23 on Sept. 2, between his time in the Blue Jays and Dodgers systems this year played 59 games at shortstop, 41 games at second base and eight games at third.

If he gets into a game, Torreyes will be the 55th player to play at least one game for the Dodgers this season, extending the franchise record. The old record was 53, set in 1944 and 1998.
