Diamondbacks Option Two Players

The Arizona Diamondbacks are sending down two players to make room for Caleb Smith and Corbin Carroll. 

The team has optioned outfielder Jordan Luplow to Triple-A Reno. 

Luplow has not hit for a strong average, as indicated by his .163/.261/.376 slash line, but has displayed some pop, hitting 11 home runs, 27 RBI and five stolen bases over 73 games this season. Luplow's departure makes room for the call-up of top prospect Corbin Carroll. 
Pitcher Tyler Holton has also been optioned to Triple-A Reno. 

The twenty-six-year-old rookie has posted a 3.00 ERA with six strikeouts over the first nine innings of his major league career this year.
