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.”

Faster than Murphy Brown with her secretaries (if you’re under 30, ask your parents), the Dodgers have rotated the final spot on their 40-man roster yet again.

Designated for assignment is Daniel Corcino (who replaced Ryan Dennick, who replaced David Huff), and arriving from the Washington Nationals in exchange for cash considerations is left-handed reliever Xavier Cedeno.

The 28-year-old Cedeno has a lifetime 4.30 FIP with 54 strikeouts against 93 baserunners in 55 Major League innings. In Triple-A last season, Cedeno had a 0.864 WHIP and 13.0 K/9.

Cedeno struck out Adrian Gonzalez with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 10th inning of the Dodgers’ marathon 8-5 loss September 3 to the Nationals.

Note: The Dodgers have also released pitcher Freddy Garcia from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
