Here are the day’s minor moves:
- The Dodgers have selected the contract of infielder Charlie Culberson, per a club announcement and as J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group first reported on Twitter. Veteran righty Brandon McCarthy was placed on the 60-day DL to create roster space, though he’s still progressing through a rehab assignment and could also rejoin the active roster later this month. Culberson, 28, hasn’t seen the majors yet this year but has appeared in 182 total MLB games over parts of four seasons, including a brief stint with the Dodgers last year. (Indeed, Culberson made the roster for the NLDS.) At Triple-A, he carries a .250/.299/.336 slash over 414 plate appearances. Los Angeles is in need of some shortstop depth while the team lets Corey Seager rest his balky elbow.
