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.

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.
