Dodgers claim pitcher Corcino from Reds
LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Dodgers have claimed right-handed pitcher Daniel Corcino from Cincinnati and designated left-handed pitcher Ryan Dennick for assignment.
The moves were announced Friday.
Corcino was 45-52 with a 4.13 ERA in 168 career minor league games in the Reds' organization. He appeared in five major league games last season. He opened this season with Double-A Pensacola, tossing a scoreless inning of relief in his only outing.
The 24-year-old pitcher was signed by the Reds as a free agent in 2008 from the Dominican Republic.
Dennick was claimed by the Dodgers from the Reds on Wednesday. The 28-year-old pitcher has a 27-31 record with 18 saves and a 3.88 ERA in 210 career minor league games over seven seasons. He appeared in eight games for the big-league Reds last season.
The Dodgers also called up left-hander Adam Liberatore from Triple-A Oklahoma City. He will be making his first career appearance on an active major league roster at age 27. He was acquired from Tampa Bay along with Joel Peralta on Nov. 20.
