The Dodgers signed free-agent infielder Aaron Miles to a minor-league contract. A team spokesperson said the 35-year-old infielder is currently in Arizona awaiting his assignment.
Miles played 136 games for the Dodgers last season, mostly at second and third base, batting .275 with three home runs and 45 RBIs. He has hit .281 over a nine-year career with five different teams.
The Dodgers signed Adam Kennedy and Jerry Hairston Jr. to fill their backup infield spots rather than re-sign Miles, who hasn’t had a contract since last season.
Also Friday, the Dodgers requested release waivers on right-handed reliever Mike MacDougal, who was designated for assignment May 3. MacDougal can become a free agent Sunday.
