LOS ANGELES -- A pair of pitchers recently removed from the Dodgers' 40-man roster will still join major league camp at Camelback Ranch in 2016, with Brooks Brown and Lisalverto Bonilla receiving non-roster invitations to spring training.

Bonilla, who turns 26 in June, was signed to a minor league deal after getting non-tendered by the Dodgers on Dec. 2. He is recovering from Tommy John surgery he had in April. The Dodgers originally acquired Bonilla by claiming him off waivers from the Rangers on Oct. 21.

Brown was claimed off waivers by from the Rockies on Oct. 14. He then cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Dec. 4. Brown, who turns 31 in June, had a 4.91 ERA in 36 games in relief for Colorado in 2015, with 20 strikeouts and 16 walks in 33 innings.

These two pitchers join the known list of non-roster invitees, which includes pitcher Matt West, infielder Charlie Culberson and catchers Jack Murphy and Shawn Zarraga.

The Dodgers haven't yet finalized their reporting dates for 2016 spring training, but their first Cactus League contest is March 3 against the White Sox at Camelback Ranch.
