Dodgers Add To 40-Man Roster
Added were right-handed pitchers Jesus Castillo and Travis Schlichting, left-handed pitchers Victor Garate and Brent Leach and outfielder Jamie Hoffman. The moves protect the players from being selected by another club in the Rule 5 Draft, to be held at the Winter Meetings on Dec. 11.
In a procedural move, the club also reinstated from the 60-day disabled list infielder Tony Abreu, outfielder Andruw Jones and right-handed pitchers Mario Alvarez, Yhency Brazoban and Jason Schmidt.
The Dodgers' Major League roster is at 38. Because of free agency, the Dodgers have only five infielders on their roster.
