The Phillies decided upon an interesting cast of September call-ups with 25-man rosters opening up Tuesday.

The three newcomers include a reliever with no big-league time, a Cuban defector who debuted in the majors this season for two clubs and a catcher who has a history with the club.

Right-handed reliever Colton Murray, a 13th round draft pick in 2011 who excelled this season in Double-A and Triple-A, is a big-leaguer for the first time and will suit up for the Phillies’ game against the Mets on Tuesday night at Citi Field.

Also on board are right-handed reliever Dalier Hinojosa, who pitched briefly in the majors this season for the Boston Red Sox and Phillies, and catcher Erik Kratz, who rejoined the organization as a minor leaguer this summer.

Murray, 25, earned a shot by going 6-1 with a 2.52 ERA in 21 Double-A games for the Reading Fightin Phils and 2-2 with a 2.79 ERA in 31 Triple-A games for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

Hinojosa, 29, is in his second season since defecting from Cuba, most of it coming in Triple-A. He’s pitched well in his big-league opportunities, working a combined 6 2/3 scoreless innings over four outings, one for Boston and three with the Phillies.

The Phillies acquired Hinojosa off waivers from Boston on July 15. He had a brief call-up for the Phils in August.

Kratz, 35, hit 230 with 18 homers and 52 RBIs in 120 games for the Phillies from 2011-13, 93 as a starter. He bounced around this season, going from Kansas City to Boston to Seattle before signing a minor-league deal with the Phils on July 17.

The Phillies freed up space on their 40-man roster for Murray and Kratz by transferring injured pitchers Chad Billingsley and Matt Harrison from the 15-day to 60-day disabled list.
