Latest Update Carlos Triunfel cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque. Fri Sep, 05, 05:52 PM
Boasts a quick bat that can generate good power. Is a fairly good athlete who can play shortstop due to a strong arm. Also plays second and third base.
Flaws: : Lacks discipline at the dish, as he swings at too many bad pitches and doesn't draw enough walks. Needs to shore up his overall defense, as well.
Triunfel has bounced between Los Angeles and Albuquerque several times this year, but it appears as though his time is finished with the Dodgers. He has no fantasy value and is used primarily as a defensive replacement.Analyst: David Kerr
This is not a shock with all of the players the Dodgers just called up. Analyst:
The Dodgers called up Erisbel "The Frisbee" Arruebarrena to take Triunfel's spot on the active roster.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Triunfel was recalled due to Uribe's hamstring injury. Triunfel was with the Dodgers earlier this year, batting .143 with one home run over 15 at bats. There was hope that Alex Guerrero would be called up and the Dodgers would find a way to get his hot bat in the lineup, but that won't be the case at this point. Triunfel will likely be limited to pinch hit duties for the time being, so he isn't much of a fantasy consideration. But, Triunfel has upside and if he can find a way to earn playing time he could provide solid numbers. Analyst: Ben Diamond
