RENO - Reports out of Phoenix confirm that the Arizona Diamondbacks plan to call up Cody Ransom from Triple-A Reno.
Ransom, 35, has been on a tear in Reno, batting .330 this season. His 26 home runs and 89 RBI are also both franchise records. He's a versatile infielder, who can play second base, third base and shortstop.
He'll take the roster spot of Stephen Drew, who fractured his right ankle on Wednesday night. Drew is due to have surgery and will likely miss the remainder of the season.
