Happy New Year, everyone. I’m back from vacation, so I’ll try to update this blog fairly often beginning today. The Dodgeres have signed lefty Matt Riley, righty Alfredo Simon and outfielder George Lombard to minor-league contracts and invited them to major-league spring training. Riley was with the organization last year at Triple-A Las Vegas. Simon spent the season with Texas’ Triple-A Oklahoma City affiliate, Lombard with Washington’s Triple-A Columbus affiliate.
