Two players up, two players out/down. That's what roster moves do.

So there's a lot going on here. As expected, Zack Greinke has been recalled from the DL, and will start tonight against the Mets. He went on the DL July 3rd with an oblique injury. We'll see how Zack handles the rest of the season, as some hope going forward would be nice, especially with the money the Diamondbacks had to Pony up to get him.

Welington Castillo has been placed on the Paternity Leave list and in his stead, Oscar Hernandez will make his 2016 debut. You may recall Hernandez being a Rule-5 pick from the Rays last year, and was able to stay on the 25-man roster all season with the, uh, help of some injuries and other things. He has spent 2015 in Visalia and Mobile, putting up decent numbers in Visalia, but has struggled with a .196/.235/.433 slash line in Double-A.

To make room for Greinke, as reported earlier, Evan Marshall has been sent to Reno.
