Sturtze designated for assignment

Tanyon Sturtze’s one-day reprieve turned into exactly that. He was DFA’d today to make room for Cory Wade to come off the DL. What the Dodgers have done in DFA’ing Pablo Ozuna and Sturtze the past two days is clear two 40-man spots, which are expected to be filled in the next few days by reliever Scott Proctor when he is activated from the 60-day DL and catcher A.J. Ellis when his contract is purchased from Triple-A Las Vegas for the September roster expansion. They’ll still need to clear 40-man spots for Rafael Furcal and Jason Schmidt if they come back anytime this season. Players on the 15-day DL count against the 40-man roster, while players on the 60-day do not.
