Erisbel Arruebarrena, 5 for 16 with a walk at the plate and as smooth a fielder as you’ll see at shortstop, didn’t have a long stay on the Dodger active roster this time around.
Two days after his recall, Arruebarrena went on the disabled list with a right hip flexor strain, and the Dodgers brought back Carlos Triunfel to take his place.
Don Mattingly told reporters that the injury happened sometime during Arruebarrena’s first at-bat Friday.
Meanwhile, Carl Crawford went 1 for 2 in a four-inning appearance with Albuquerque last night.

Earl Robinson, who made his Major League debut with the Dodgers in their first year in Los Angeles, died at the age of 77, according to the Dodgers’ public relations department. Robinson, who went to Berkeley High School and then attended California, went 3 for 15 with a walk for the Dodgers, and later played three seasons for Baltimore.
