EXTRA BASES: Manager Don Mattingly said he spoke to Brandon League, who was designated for assignment Thursday. "He seemed to be in pretty good spirits," Mattingly said. League, 2-3 with a 2.57 earned-run average in 2014, had spent the entire season on the disabled list with shoulder problems. He pitched in 10 minor league games as part of a rehabilitation assignment and gave up only one earned run, but Mattingly said the Dodgers didn't consider him to be one of their seven best relievers. "We have some young guys throwing the ball well out of the bullpen for us," Mattingly said. The Dodgers remain obligated to pay League what remains of his $7.5-million salary. … Veteran pitcher Trevor Cahill was signed to a minor league contract and is building up his arm strength at the team's spring-training facility in Arizona. Cahill was released last month by the Atlanta Braves after posting a 7.52 ERA in 15 games, including three starts.
