The Arizona Diamondbacks shuffled their roster a bit Tuesday, transferring center fielder A.J. Pollock from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list and calling up pitcher Kyle Drabek from Triple-A Reno.

The team also optioned pitcher Silvino Bracho to Reno.

Pollock, 28, suffered a fractured right elbow in Friday’s exhibition game against the Kansas City Royals. He is slated to undergo surgery Tuesday, and will be out an indefinite period of time. An All-Star for the first time in 2015, Pollock hit .315 with 20 home runs and 76 RBI while stealing 39 bases in 157 games played.

The 28-year-old Drabek appeared in four games for the D-backs during spring training, posting a 1.29 ERA in seven innings of work. He spent most of the 2015 season with Triple-A Charlotte, going 7-11 with a 3.47 ERA in 24 starts. He appeared in three games for the Chicago White Sox, allowing three earned runs in five innings.

Bracho, 23, allowed one run on two hits in 1.1 innings during Monday night’s 10-5 loss to the Colorado Rockies.
