Aces reliever Jimmie Sherfy is being called back to the desert.

The Aces all-time leader in saves (39) was called up to the Arizona Diamondbacks before tonight’s nationally televised game in Phoenix. Troy Scribner was optioned back to Reno.

Sherfy holds an impressive 2-0 record and spotless 0.00 ERA in 11 appearances with Arizona in 2017. He held opponents to a .166 batting average and 0.66 WHIP with nine strikeouts in 10.2 innings of work. In two postseason appearances. he gave up four runs on five hits.

Sherfy, 26, made his MLB debut on August 20, 2017, pitching one inning of relief against the Minnesota Twins. The flame-throwing righty recorded 20 saves with the Aces last season and was one shy from tying the most saves in the Pacific Coast League with 21.

With the D-Backs poised to recall Sherfy, Bradin Hagens notched his first save since 2010 in the Aces 2-1 victory Saturday night.

Troy Scribner made his first big league start this season for Arizona on Saturday. The right-hander tossed 3.2 innings, giving up two earned runs on four hits and six walks with four strikeouts and losing the decision. Scribner is 2-1 with a 5.68 ERA with the Aces this season.

With five pitchers on the Diamondbacks’ disabled list, look for Sherfy to make an immediate impact in the Arizona bullpen. The Diamondbacks will face-off against the Washington Nationals at 5:08 p.m on ESPN.
