The Dodgers increased the number of players on their active roster to 35 on Sunday, as they promoted infielder Ronald Torreyes from triple-A Oklahoma City.

Torreyes, 23, has never previously played in the major leagues.

The Dodgers purchased Torreyes from the Toronto Blue Jays on June 12.

In 110 minor league games at double A and triple A, Torreyes batted .261 with 18 doubles, four home runs and 36 runs batted in.

In other news:

-- The Dodgers traded minor league infielder Darwin Barney to the Blue Jays in exchange for a player to be named later or cash. Barney was removed from the Dodgers’ 40-man roster when the team acquired Torreyes.

-- Yasiel Puig, who is rehabilitating a strained hamstring at the Dodgers’ nearby spring-training complex, showed up at Chase Field. Puig is supposed to return to Los Angeles next week.

-- Corey Seager will start his sixth consecutive game at shortstop Sunday as veteran Jimmy Rollins remained sidelined with a jammed knuckle on his right hand. Rollins also won’t start Monday, as he is expected to test his hand throwing and hitting.

-- Manager Don Mattingly was optimistic Carl Crawford’s hamstring problem was minor, as Crawford reported feeling considerably better than he did the previous night. Crawford was removed from the game Saturday night because of tightness in his hamstring.
