LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers promoted shortstop Erisbel Arruebarrena from Triple-A Albuquerque and optioned infielder Carlos Triunfel on Tuesday.

Arruebarrena, 24, was batting .333 with three doubles, a home run and 11 RBIs in 26 games for the Isotopes. He also was suspended five games for his role in a major brawl between Albuquerque and the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Triple-A Reno team. Arruebarrena angered some Reno players with a slow-motion trip around the bases following a home run and got into it the next game with Reno’s catcher when his throw back to the pitcher got near Arruebarrena’s head.

Arruebarrena has gone 5-for-16 in two call-ups for the Dodgers this season. He was put on the 15-day disabled list July 5 with a strained hip flexor muscle.
