PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks have reinstated catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia from the 15-day disabled list and optioned right-hander Dominic Leone to Double-A Mobile.
The 30-year-old Saltalamacchia had been on the DL since before the All-Star break with a strained neck. He appeared in 20 games, hitting .213 with a homer and four RBIs after signing with Arizona as a free agent on May 7.
Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said the team will carry three catchers with the return of Saltalamacchia, along with Oscar Hernandez and Welington Castillo.
The 23-year-old Leone went 0-1 with a 14.73 ERA in three relief appearances with Arizona.
