The Arizona Diamondbacks announced that outfielder David Peralta will be taking another trip to the 10-day injured list Saturday.

In a corresponding move, the team has also recalled Tim Locastro from triple-a Reno.

Peralta’s latest IL stint is due to right AC joint inflammation, an injury that he has been dealing with for much of the season. This will be Peralta’s third trip to the IL.

As of Friday, Peralta was batting .275 with 12 home runs and 57 RBI.

Locastro will likely be Peralta’s replacement in the outfield. This season, he’s played 68 games for the D-backs, hitting .252 with one home run, 15 RBIs and 16 hit by pitches.

The D-backs will be playing in their second of a three-game, Saturday in Milwaukee.
