Peraza exits after aggravating hamstring

Torreyes replaces infielder in Major League debut

PHOENIX -- The injuries keep coming for the Dodgers, as second baseman Jose Peraza was removed from Sunday's 4-3 win over the D-backs after aggravating a previous hamstring injury.

Peraza, who missed three games with a tight hamstring last week, was removed in the bottom of the fifth inning and replaced by Ronald Torreyes, making his Major League debut after being called up from Triple-A before the game.

Torreyes doubled in his first Major League at-bat and played flawless defense.

Peraza stressed the leg trying to beat out a bunt in the third inning. He was starting against left-hander Patrick Corbin in place of Chase Utley, who has filled in while Howie Kendrick and Enrique Hernandez have been on the disabled list with strained hamstrings.

Other Dodgers ailing are Jimmy Rollins (index finger), Alex Guerrero (calf), Carl Crawford (hamstring), Yasmani Grandal (shoulder) and Yasiel Puig (hamstring).
