ST. LOUIS -- The Dodgers claimed outfielder Mike Baxter from the Mets on Thursday and designated outfielder Alex Castellanos for assignment.

Baxter, 28, is a left-handed hitter who played in 74 games with the Mets this year, hitting .189. Like Castellanos, he is a corner outfielder. He was a fourth-round Draft pick of the Padres in 2005 and was claimed off waivers by the Mets in 2011.
