Dodgers NRI Signings

The Dodgers have signed four non-roster players with invitations to Major League Spring Training, and are close to adding a fifth. The four signed are: Jose Ascanio, a right-handed relief pitcher; Jeff Baisley, a corner infielder; Wil Ledezma, a left-handed reliever; and Shane Lindsay, a right-handed reliever.

A tentative agreement has been reached with left-handed reliever Alberto Castillo, a 35-year-old from Cuba who had a 2.31 ERA in 17 games in 2011 for the Diamondbacks, his eighth organization. He missed the month of August with shoulder tendinitis. Ledezma and Castillo could compete to replace Hong-Chih Kuo as a lefty in the bullpen to go with Scott Elbert.
