PHOENIX (AP) -The Arizona Diamondbacks recalled five players from the minors and also activated outfielder Carlos Quentin, who has been on the disabled list since Aug. 2 with a right hamstring injury.
Among the callups are pitchers Dana Eveland, Bill Murphy and Jailen Peguero along with utilityman Robbie Hammock and infielder Emilio Bonifacio.
Eveland was scheduled to start Saturday night's game here against Colorado, his first start for the Diamondbacks and his third appearance for Arizona this season.
He was 1-0 with a 1.95 ERA in nine games for Triple-A Tucson.
Murphy, a lefthander, was 3-3 with a 3.68 ERA in 54 games for Tucson this season, including nine starts.
He will be making his major-league debut along with Bonifacio, who appeared in 131 games for Double-A Mobile and hit .285 with two homers, 40 RBIs and a Southern League-best 41 stolen bases.
Hammock began the season with the Diamondbacks and hit .237 in 28 games. He had a .329 batting average with four homers in 66 games for Tucson.
Peguero had an 8.38 ERA in 11 games for Arizona this season before going 6-2 with a 1.89 ERA in 53 games for Tucson.
