It isn’t really like this, but you might imagine the Dodger front office setting up a game of musical chairs where, instead of taking a chair away each time a player sits down, they simply keep the chairs where they are, remove the excess player and replace him with another — each one in theory slightly more valuable than the last.

The latest exchange happened today with the Dodgers designating for assignment pitcher Ryan Dennick, whom they claimed only 48 hours ago, to make room on the 40-man roster for another erstwhile member of the Reds organization, Daniel Corcino.

Corcino, 24, had a 4.13 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 113 strikeouts against 209 baserunners in 143 2/3 innings for the Double-A Pensacola Blue Wahoos in 2014. That included 74 walks and 16 batters hit by pitches. Corcino also had a 4.34 ERA in 18 2/3 innings for the Reds in his first big-league action late in the season, striking out 15, walking 10 and pitch-hitting one.

Dennick joins a recent group of temporary Dodgers named Ryan who never played for the organization that also includes Ryan Jackson, Ryan Webb and Ryan Lavarnaway.

    Wahoo, good answer to another trivia quest. Who appeared on the roster, but never received a number

    I understand they’re thinking of calling Adam Liberatore back up.
