Mitch Jones clears waivers, Dodgers sign more draftees, more

Few notes to pass along before Hiroki Kuroda and Oliver Perez — making his first start since May 2 — face off in New York.

31-year-old outfielder Mitch Jones, who spent 16 days with the big club and was designated for assignment last Thursday, cleared waivers and has been sent down to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Two more picks from the June draft have signed with the Dodgers in the last week: lanky high-school righthander Brandon Martinez and Oklahoma catcher Jeremy Wise. The Dodgers took Wise in the fifth round at 157th overall; Martinez — who’s yet to turn 18 — was a seventh-round selection.

Lastly, our Clay Fowler has a nice feature on Matt “The Bison” Kemp, who’s currently in fourth place out of five candidates in the MLB Final Vote campaign. Find out how to vote here.

4:10 p.m. PST first pitch tonight.
