Dodgers add Pedro Baez, Yimi Garcia and Jarret Martin to 40-man roster


LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers today selected the contracts of right-handed pitchers Pedro Baez and Yimi Garcia and left-handed pitcher Jarret Martin, adding the three pitchers to the club's 40-man roster. The team also announced the signings of catcher J.C. Boscan, infielders Brendan Harris and Clint Robinson, and left-handed pitcher Daniel Moskos to minor league contracts with an invitation to Major League Spring Training.

Baez, 25, just completed his first season as a pitcher after spending the first six seasons of his career as an infielder and went a combined 3-3 with a 3.88 ERA in 48 games with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga and Double-A Chattanooga. Baez, who was originally signed as a non-drafted free agent on Jan. 22, 2007 out of the Dominican Republic, also pitched for the Glendale Desert Dogs of the Arizona Fall League following the season.

Garcia, 23, was a Double-A Southern League All-Star in 2013, going 4-6 with 19 saves and a 2.54 ERA in 49 games with Chattanooga. The Moca, Dominican Republic native, who also played for the Desert Dogs in the Arizona Fall League following the season, limited opponents to a .164 batting average this year, while striking out 85 and walking only 14 in 60.1 innings.

Martin, 24, combined to go 6-7 with two saves and a 4.30 ERA in 40 games (14 starts) with Rancho Cucamonga and Chattanooga during the regular season before a stint in the Arizona Fall League. Martin, who was acquired in a trade with Baltimore in December 2011, posted a 2.77 combined ERA (8 ER/26.0 IP) in his 26 relief appearances this season, including a 1.69 mark (2 ER/10.2 IP) in 11 games during a late-season promotion to Chattanooga.

The Dodgers now have 34 players on their 40-man roster.
