The Dodgers have claimed a pitcher off waivers from the Reds, but are sitting their star outfielder for the third straight game.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have claimed 24-year-old pitcher Daniel Corcino off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds. In order to make room on the roster for Corcino, Los Angeles designated for assignment pitcher Ryan Dennickwhom they had claimed off waivers from the Reds Wednesday.

Corcino did see time in the majors with the Reds last season, posting a 4.34 ERA in 18 2/3 innings over five appearances, three of which were starts. A big plus for Corcino to the Dodgers is the fact that he has made 116 starts and 52 relief appearances in his minor league career, so he can provide depth for both LA's starting rotation and bullpen depending on need.
