Justin Orenduff DFA’d, Manny added to roster

Orenduff didn’t pitch well at Vegas last year, going 3-7 with a 6.55 ERA in 21 starts and 10 relief appearances. He made one Cactus League appearance this spring, facing six batters, recording two outs, walking two and giving up two doubles on Feb. 27 against Seattle. He has a good chance of clearing waivers and remaining in the organization.

    Former first round supplemental pick (made possible with the Dodgers lost Paul Quantrill to FA), just probably won’t ever work out.

    Marcel can rest easily now…

    Earlier Tony wrote, “…if [Torre] would ever consider settling the issue of Manny batting third of fourth by going the Tony La Russa route and batting his pitcher eighth. Joe didn’t totally dismiss it, saying it might be an option on days when Juan Pierre plays because then you could bat Pierre ninth and thus have three table setters batting immediately ahead of Manny in the three hole.”

    A lineup with pitcher, JP, and Manny all it will only happen on a Matt Kemp day off. I hope there aren’t many of those.

    Thanks, Bruin. I genuinely couldn’t wait until finding out this news…
