PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have released right-handed reliever Aaron Heilman to make room on the roster for Tuesday night's starter Barry Enright.

Heilman was 4-1 with a 6.88 ERA in 32 games with Arizona. The right-handed Enright was recalled from Triple-A Reno to make the start against Milwaukee after struggling left-hander Zach Duke was demoted to the bullpen.

The 25-year-old Enright opened the season in the Arizona rotation but was sent down after going 1-3 with a 6.49 ERA in six starts. At Reno, Enright was 8-2 with a 4.29 ERA in 12 appearances. Enright is 7-10 with a 4.58 ERA in parts of two seasons with the Diamondbacks.
