Perdomo was recalled by the Diamondbacks on Sunday and will head straight into the starting lineup, batting eighth and playing shortstop against the Dodgers.

Perdomo made his big-league debut in early April but was sent down after appearing in just four games, going 1-for-10 at the plate. He's spent the bulk of the season with Double-A Amarillo, where he's hit an unremarkable .231/.351/.357 with six homers and eight steals in 82 games, though that performance begins to look much better once his age (21) is factored in. He'll get the chance to make a brief audition in the final week of the season, as Nick Ahmed (shoulder) hit the injured list in a corresponding move.
