Dodgers ink five to Minor League contracts
LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers have signed five players to Minor League contracts with invitations to Major League Spring Training.

Those who agreed to terms were right-handed pitchers Gregory Infante, Hector Correa, Kelvin De La Cruz, Juan Abreu and catcher Wilkin Castillo.

Infante, 25, pitched in five Major League games for the White Sox in 2010 and was 4-1 with a 3.55 ERA this year at Triple-A Charlotte.

The injury-prone Correa, 24, was a fourth-round pick of the Marlins in 2006 and went 1-3 with a 7.50 ERA for the Giants' Class A San Jose affiliate.

De La Cruz, 24, went 5-8 with a 4.92 ERA at Double-A Erie this year with the Tigers.

Abreu, 27, is in his 11th professional season and made seven Major League appearances with Houston in 2011. He was 2-3 with a 6.80 ERA, splitting time between Triple-A Oklahoma City and Las Vegas after he was claimed off waivers from Houston by Toronto.

Castillo, a 28-year-old switch-hitter, played the 2012 season for Colorado's Triple-A team at Colorado Springs and hit .253 in 74 games. He appeared briefly in the Major Leagues in 2008 and '09 for the Reds.
