SAN FRANCISCO -- In the name of depth, the Dodgers signed free-agent infielder Ian Stewart to a Minor League contract.
Stewart was released by the Cubs last week after complaining about management via Twitter because he had not been called up from Triple-A. He will be assigned to Triple-A Albuquerque.
Stewart provides depth at third base, where the Dodgers became a little thinner this week when Luis Cruz left to join the Yankees.
