PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks expanded their roster Tuesday, recalling six players, including three pitchers.

Right-handers Billy Buckner and Leo Rosales joined left-hander Doug Slaten as roster additions. All three spent time with the Diamondbacks earlier this season.

Arizona also added infielders Jamie D'Antona and Josh Whitesell and outfielder Alex Romero.

D'Antona and Romero were with the Diamondbacks earlier, but Whitesell is in the majors for the first time. He batted .328 for Tucson with 86 runs scored, 36 doubles and 26 home runs. He was second in the Pacific Coast League with 110 RBIs.

The six were called up following the completion of the Tucson season on Monday.

Arizona recalled utility man Robby Hammock from Tucson on Sunday.
