Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - The Arizona Diamondbacks placed infielder Cliff Pennington on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained ligament in his left thumb and recalled infielder Didi Gregorius from Triple-A Reno.

Gregorius was hitting .310 with 14 doubles, three home runs, 25 RBI, 42 runs scored and a .389 on-base percentage in 57 games with the Aces this season. He played 38 games at second base and 19 at shortstop.

The 24-year-old left-handed hitter appeared in two games with Arizona during the Opening Series in Sydney, Australia, before being optioned to Reno on March 29.

The Diamondbacks are in Denver for a three-game series against the Rockies.
