LOS ANGELES -- While originally asked to accept a Minor League assignment, reliever Lance Cormier said the Dodgers told him on Monday that he would be on the 25-man roster. "They called me this morning and told me that I had made the team," said Cormier. Saying "the ball is in their court" Sunday, Cormier beat out Scott Elbert for the final spot and will now join a bullpen of Jonathan Broxton, Hong-Chih Kuo, Matt Guerrier, Kenley Jansen, Blake Hawksworth and Mike MacDougal.
Cormier, who pitched last season for the Tampa Bay Rays, made 60 appearances with a 3.92 ERA. "I signed here to pitch in the Major Leagues," said Cormier on Sunday.
