The Dodgers’ latest roster move is to add righty Sergio Santos to the bullpen, while sending Mike Bolsinger back to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

A veteran of 180 Major League games as a reliever, Santos began the 2015 season in Triple-A with eight strikeouts against eight baserunners in 4 2/3 innings.

To make room on the 40-man roster for Santos, the Dodgers designated newly acquired Xavier Cedeno for assignment. Santos is the fifth player to fill the 40th spot on the 40-man roster since David Huff came up to start April 14 against Seattle. One of those players, Daniel Corcino, was outrighted to Double-A Tulsa.

Meanwhile, the Dodgers’ starting pitcher for Sunday’s series finale against the Padres is still officially listed as “TBD.”


Howie Kendrick is the man


In case you missed it: Andre Ethier keeps on truckin’


  1. I love the black and white photo of Don, Andrew and Farhan. Is that Farhan’s office? I wonder if anyone bugs him about having a picture of (what looks to be) the Golden Gate Bridge – a San Fran landmark to be sure – hanging on the wall? I imagine I would if I was there.

    • Hmm – now that I look again at the picture I don’t know whose office it is because I don’t know that it is even Farhan in the picture.
      Ah well, my point remains the same even if the names are changed.

        The picture is of Friedman, Mattingly and Wallach and was taken Thursday — in San Francisco.

        • Thanks Jon for the correction. I must admit, I never imagined road teams having office space – never mind comfy and stylish office space in the away facilities. I don’t know why this would be a surprise, but now I know.

  2. “…Santos began the 2015 season in Triple-A with eight strikeouts against eight baserunners in 4 2/3 innings.”

    How does one get a strikeout against a baserunner?

    • Jon Weisman

      It means “as opposed to allowing” or “in contrast to allowing” — it’s not literally against the baserunner.
