The Arizona Diamondbacks continued shuffling their bullpen Wednesday night, optioning right-handed reliever Dominic Leone back to Triple-A Reno.

Leone had pitched only hours before, throwing a scoreless eighth inning in Arizona’s 11-4 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals at Chase Field.  The 24-year-old also pitched Tuesday night, allowing three runs on four hits in 1.2 innings of relief in an 8-2 loss.

At Reno this season, Leone has pitched in six games, and has posted a 3.86 ERA in seven innings.

In a corresponding move, the D-backs recalled pitcher Jake Barrett from Triple-A. The 24-year-old has appeared in six games this season for Arizona, posting a 3.86 ERA in seven innings of work.
