SAN DIEGO -- The Dodgers continued their hoarding of middle infielders Wednesday by claiming Carlos Triunfel on outright waivers from Seattle, adding him to the 40-man roster before optioning him to Triple-A Albuquerque.

The 24-year-old Triunfel split 2013 between the Mariners and Triple-A Tacoma. In his seven Minor League seasons, Triunfel has a .276 batting average. He was designated for assignment by the Mariners.

At shortstop, the Dodgers have starter Hanley Ramirez, who they have said they want to re-sign; top prospect Corey Seager; a pair of Cubans in Alex Guerrero (being moved to second base) and Erisbel Arruebarrena; and now Triunfel.
