In keeping with their seemingly never ending roster churning, the Los Angeles Dodgers traded infielder Darwin Barney to the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday, and called up Ronald Torreyes from Triple-A Oklahoma City ahead of their series finale against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Coincidentally, the Dodgers acquired Torreyes from the Blue Jays back in June for cash considerations. He was optioned to Double-A Tulsa, where he appeared in 62 games. Torreyes also played in 13 games with the OKC Dodgers.

During his time with the Drillers, Torreyes hit .293/.348/.410 with four home runs, 13 doubles and 19 RBIs. He hit .306/.340/.388 over two stints with the OKC Dodgers, where he finished the 2015 season, last appearing in a game Sept. 6.

Although the versatile 23-year-old has experience as an outfielder, he only played second base, shortstop and third base after joining the Dodgers organization.

Torreyes signed with the Cincinnati Reds in 2010, at the time just 17 years old. He spent two seasons in the club’s farm system before moving on to spend time in the Minors with the Chicago Cubs, Houston Astros and Blue Jays.

With the addition of Torreyes, the Dodgers active roster now sits at 35. Torreyes, who will wear No. 59, has yet to make his Major League debut.
