Diamondbacks’ Jorge Barrosa and Luis Frias end up on the injured list

Injuries continue to pile up in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization after Triple-A Reno placed outfield prospect Jorge Barrosa on the seven-day injured list Thursday with a right hamstring strain, a D-backs spokesman said.

In addition, the Diamondbacks placed right-handed reliever Luis Frias on the 15-day injured list due to right shoulder inflammation, rescinding his option on Wednesday.

The D-backs placed right-handed starter Ryne Nelson on the 15-day IL Friday (right elbow contusion) after taking a comebacker on Thursday.

Barrosa has not played for the Aces since Sunday and left the club with an injury. He hit a hot bat early this season in Triple-A with a .900 OPS, a home run and two steals in 39 at-bats.

The D-backs gave him a look at the big leagues after Alek Thomas ended up on the IL (hamstring) and before Randal Grichuk made his debut (ankle). Barrosa went 2-for-10, doubled in his first at-bat and delivered an RBI single in extra innings against the New York Yankees at Chase Field.

Although Barrosa was not part of the big league team, he does not represent the depth for the time being. He is the only minor league outfielder on Arizona’s 40-man roster.

Frias going to the IL saves his last option.

The D-backs had sent him down after a rough start in the Majors in 2024 (seven earned runs in 6.1 innings), highlighted by Tuesday’s outing in which all three batters he faced reached base. Frias finished well last year with an ERA of 1.98 in 13.2 innings in September.

Manager Torey Lovullo expressed his optimism about Frias’ future.

β€œHe’s determined to get out there, get after it and find his way back here,” Lovullo said Wednesday. β€œI still believe he will be a very good reliever at this level.”
