The Los Angeles Dodgers signed three players to minor league deals today, agreeing to terms with outfielder Trayvon Robinson, pitcher Mark Pope and second baseman Ryan Adams, according to Matt Eddy of Baseball America.

Followers of the team may be familiar with Robinson, who was once part of the Dodgers farm system until he was included in a three-team deal that sent him to the Seattle Mariners. Robinson was held in high regard by many followers of the Dodgers, but the trade ultimately yielded Stephen Fife and Tim Federowicz, each of whom were relatively productive for the Dodgers at the big league level.  

Some other notes relating to the club:

  • Yenier Bello, a Cuban catcher, can now sign with a Major League team following clearance from the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control. Bello, 28, has been linked to the Dodgers by Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com.
  • Rusney Castillo, an outfielder also from Cuba, may also be of interest to the Dodgers. Ben Badler of Baseball America reported that General Manager Ned Colletti, along with other Dodgers scouts, attended a private workout with the outfielder, though the 26-year-old also has experience playing both second and third base. He has not yet been cleared to sign.
