Dodgers claim pitcher Daniel Porcino off waivers from Reds

Only two days after Ryan Dennick was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers, he was designated for assignment and removed from their 40-man roster.

Dennick was replaced on the 40-man roster by another waiver claim from the Cincinnati Reds, right-hander Daniel Corcino.

Corcino, 24, pitched in the major leagues for the first time last season, appearing in five games for the Reds. He was 0-2 with a 4.34 earned-run average in five games, including three starts.

He has pitched in 168 minor league games in his career, including 116 starts. He has a career record of 45-52 with a 4.13 earned-run average.

Corcino, who is from the Dominican Republic, is expected to be optioned to the minor leagues.
