Dodgers DFA Maza, Sign Pablo Ozuna

I simply do not understand the Dodgers' front office; they've designated Luis Maza for assignment and signed Pablo Ozuna, previously released by the White Sox.
Ozuna, 34 next month, was hitting .281 in 34 games with the White Sox, his fourth organization. He has played all positions in the infield and outfield, but mostly third base, with his outfield play primarily in left field. He'll need to focus on second base to spell Jeff Kent in the late innings, which has been Maza's primary role recently.

Ozuna said all the right things about playing anywhere asked, in keeping with his reputation for being one of the most popular players in the White Sox clubhouse. The Dodgers will pay the pro-rated minimum salary, with the White Sox picking up the remainder of his $1.05 million salary this year and the $200,000 buyout of his salary next year.

I guess this represents an incremental upgrade, but I have to wonder whether he'll just end up starting at third instead of giving Andy LaRoche an adequate chance and benching and/or optioning Blake DeWitt back to the minors.
