Dodgers designate Mitchell for assignment
LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers on Monday designated for assignment infielder Russell Mitchell to make room on the 40-man roster for reliever Todd Coffey, who signed Friday as a free agent.

Mitchell, who turns 27 next week, had brief Major League callups the past two seasons, hitting .151 with four homers in 101 at-bats. He was originally drafted by the Dodgers in 2003.

He underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist for torn cartilage last September.
