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