Latest Update Dodgers designated INF Carlos Triunfel for assignment. Mon Sep, 01, 06:48 PM
Boasts a quick bat that can generate good power. Is a fairly good athlete who can play shortstop due to a strong arm.
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 defense.
This is not a shock with all of the players the Dodgers just called up. Analyst: Mike Mohr
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
With Justin Turner returning to his utility role, Triunfel will head back to Triple-A. He's likely to return at some point, but for now, he is best served with regular playing time in the minor leagues.Analyst: Howard Bender
