Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - The Arizona Diamondbacks placed center fielder A.J. Pollock on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a fractured right hand.

Pollock sustained the injury in the eighth inning of Saturday's game against the Cincinnati Reds when he was hit in the hand by a pitch from Johnny Cueto.

"I don't know the exact location but it's broke," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said after Saturday's game. "Now it's just a matter of whether he needs surgery or not."

Pollock was batting .316 with six homers and 15 RBI through 52 games this season.

Arizona selected the contract of outfielder David Peralta from Double-A Mobile to fill the vacated roster spot. Peralta was hitting .297 with six homers and 46 RBI over 53 games with the BayBears this season.

The Diamondbacks also transferred pitcher Matt Reynolds from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day DL on Sunday.
