Dodgers Designate Russ Mitchell For Assignment

The Dodgers designated infielder Russ Mitchell for assignment, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweets. The Dodgers confirmed the move, which will presumably clear 40-man roster space for right-handed reliever Todd Coffey.

Mitchell appeared in 25 games for the 2011 Dodgers, playing first base, third base and right field. He has struggled through his first 101 MLB plate appearances, but he posted a .283/.372/.503 line in 392 Triple-A plate appearances last year and has a .784 OPS in nine minor league seasons.
