SAN DIEGO (AP) -Arizona's top prospect, outfielder Justin Upton, got his first big league callup Thursday after the first-place Diamondbacks put Carlos Quentin on the disabled list with a strained hamstring.
Upton, the No. 1 pick overall in the June 2005 draft, was promoted from Double-A Mobile. He arrived at Petco Park in time for Arizona's series finale against the San Diego Padres, but he wasn't in the starting lineup.
Upton's brother, B.J., was drafted by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays with the second overall pick in the 2002 draft, making them the only brother combination to be selected as the No. 1 and No. 2 choices in different drafts.
Upton was batting .310 with Mobile, fifth in the Southern League, with 13 homers, 53 RBIs and 10 stolen bases.
Quentin tweaked a hamstring while running out a two-out double in Arizona's 9-5 win over San Diego on Wednesday night.
