D-backs call up Spruill for extra arm in 'pen following 14-inning game

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks placed infielder/catcher Jordan Pacheco on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis and recalled right-handed pitcher Zeke Spruill from Triple-A Reno prior to Wednesday's game with Cleveland.
Spruill, 24, begins his second stint with the D-backs this season after being recalled on May 25 as Arizonaâs 26th man. In his only appearance this season, he started the second game of a doubleheader against the Mets and took the loss, after allowing 3 earned runs over 5 1/3 innings.
In 17 games (10 starts) with Reno this year, Spruill is 3-4 with one save and a 6.75 ERA. He provides an extra arm for a pitching staff that was taxed by Tuesday night's 14-inning game.
Pacheco has three hits in eight at-bats for the Diamondbacks since being claimed off waivers from Colorado.
