LOS ANGELES -- With third baseman Juan Uribe still on the disabled list and backup Justin Turner hobbled by a strained calf, the Dodgers on Saturday placed infielder Chone Figgins on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left quad muscle and recalled infielder Carlos Triunfel from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Figgins started at third base and played the entire game Friday night, but was injured running to first on an eighth-inning sacrifice bunt. 

"I felt it pop running to first, but it wasn't bad and I finished the game," said Figgins. "When I woke up today, I couldn't walk. I got in the pool and it got better as the day went on, and I can walk on it. Maybe it won't be too bad."

For Saturday night's game against Arizona, Miguel Rojas started at third base.

Figgins was batting .217 with a .373 on-base percentage in 38 games, having made the Dodgers as a non-roster player after missing the 2013 season.

Triunfel, claimed off waivers from Seattle in April, was hitting .212 at Albuquerque. He spent one day with the Dodgers in April (did not play) and had brief Major League callups with Seattle in 2012 and 2013.
