LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers today claimed infielder Carlos Triunfel on outright waivers from Seattle, added him to the 40-man roster and optioned him to Triple-A Albuquerque.
The 24-year-old Triunfel spent 2013 splitting time between the Mariners and Triple-A Tacoma in Seattle's organization. An athletic infielder with a strong arm, Triunfel has shown the versatility to play shortstop, second base and third base and has played all three positions in both the Majors and minors. In his seven minor league seasons, Triunfel has posted a .276 batting average.
The Dodgers now have 40 players on their 40-man roster.
