PHOENIX -- In a shuffle of middle relievers, the Arizona Diamondbacks optioned right-hander Jailen Peguero to Triple-A Tucson and recalled lefty Randy Choate on Tuesday.

Peguero was 0-0 with a 7.04 ERA in nine relief appearances.

Choate has a career record of 5-7 with a 4.64 ERA. This is the fourth straight season he has made the Diamondbacks' roster.

Choate made his debut with the New York Yankees in 2000 and made two appearances in the 2001 World Series against Arizona.
