Dodgers Sign Juan Castro

The Dodgers signed infielder Juan Castro to a minor league deal, tweets Ed Price of AOL FanHouse.  Castro was released by the Phillies on July 17th.

Castro, 38, came up through the Dodgers' system and also spent the '09 season with the club.  He tallied a .198/.237/.238 big league line before the Phillies released him this year.

More like depth charge—-can’t run,hit or field :)

Who opened the jar of trollbait? Depth at AAA, and yes, believe it or not the guy *CAN* field. Get over it.

blargh… too old to be a reliable fielder. certainly not a “slick” glove. Lets hope Raffy stays healthy.

This just means Jamey Carroll is on the trading block so we need a defensive backup for DeWitt and Furkey

That just means Jamey carroll is on the trading block so we gonna pick up a back up.

Jamey Carroll better not be on the trading block. That would be ridiculous. Hopefully just a depth move. I can see Belliard on the trading block though. But lets be realistic the Dodgers need a REAL Bat…one that hits (Werth, Hart) someone like that. Get rid of Manny he has’nt done anything since leaving the juice.

Dodgers need to get rid of Blake Dewitt & Russell “Douple Play” Martin.
