Dodgers Sign Eugenio Velez

The Dodgers signed Eugenio Velez, the team announced today.  They also confirmed minor league signings of Juan Castro and J.D. Closser.

Velez, 28, was non-tendered by the Giants earlier this month even though he wasn't arbitration eligible yet.  He owns a .256/.300/.388 line in 678 career plate appearances.  He's logged time at all three outfield positions as well as second base.  This year the speedy utility man hit .302/.353/.439 at Triple-A.  Velez comes much cheaper than the other infielder the Dodgers signed away from the rival Giants, Juan Uribe.
