The Arizona Diamondbacks shuffled their roster Monday morning, prior to the finale of a four-game series in Philadelphia against the Phillies.

Right-handed pitcher Shelby Miller was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list and will start Monday against the Phillies. Miller landed on the DL on May 27 with a right index finger sprain. He pitched in two games at High-A Visalia on a rehab assignment, posting a 2-0 record with a 0.75 ERA.

At the big-league level this season, Miller hasn’t fared as well. He’s 1-6 with a 7.09 ERA in 10 starts. Arizona made room for Miller by optioning infielder/outfielder Brandon Drury to Reno Sunday afternoon.

The club made a couple other moves Monday, recalling outfielder Socrates Brito from Triple-A Reno and placing outfielder David Peralta on the 15-day disabled list.

Brito made the D-backs roster out of spring training but struggled, hitting just .226 (7-for-31) before being optioned to the Aces. In Reno, he batted .289 (62-for-218) with 19 extra-base hits and 30 RBI.

Peralta, who has been bothered by a lower back strain, is on the disabled list for the second time this season. He was on the shelf from May 15 to June 6 with inflammation in his right wrist. In 41 games this season, Peralta is batting .259 (38-for-147) with four home runs and 15 RBI.

His disabled list assignment is retroactive to June 15.
