LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers signed utility man Max Muncy to a minor league contract on Thursday, and he was added to the Triple-A Oklahoma City roster on Friday.

Muncy, 26, played 96 games for the A’s in 2015-16 combined, hitting .195/.290/.321 with 10 doubles, five home runs, and 29 walks in 245 plate appearances. He was drafted by Oakland in the fifth round in 2012 out of Baylor.

He was a non-roster invitee with the A’s in Arizona, but was released at the end of spring training.

Muncy bats left and throws right, and in the majors has played all over, with 23 games at first base, 21 games at second base, 17 games at third base, 17 games in right field, and four games in left field.

He hit .251/.360/.408 in 64 games with Triple-A Nashville in 2016.

In addition, one day after reliever Madison Younginer made a spot start, a pair of right-handers joined Oklahoma City’s bullpen. Adam Bray was promoted from Class-A Rancho Cucamonga, and Parker Curry was added from Class-A Great Lakes.

Oklahoma City placed catcher Brant Whiting on the seven-day DL, and placed Fabio Castillo on the temporary inactive list.

To replace Bray, Rancho Cucamonga added right-hander Carlos Felix from extended spring training. Great Lakes replaced Curry by adding pitcher Miguel Urena from extended spring training.
