In addition to the names mentioned earlier on Friday, the Dodgers have also invited two more players to spring training on a minor league contract, both of whom were in the organization in 2012. Outfielder Alfredo Silverio and infielder Ozzie Martinez have been signed to minor league deals and will open spring training at Camelback Ranch in big league camp.

Silverio missed all of 2012 after suffering multiple injuries in a car accident in the Dominican Republic on Jan. 23. Silvero, who turns 26 in May, underwent Tommy John surgery on May 9, and was designated for assignment on Nov. 1. He hit .306/.340/.542 with 76 extra-base hits in 132 games for Double-A Chattanooga in 2011.

Martinez was acquired from the White Sox for cash on July 10 and hit .255/.296/.275 in 39 games with Triple-A Albuqueruque while playing mostly shortstop. Martinez, who turns 25 in May, played in 34 major league games with the Marlins in 2010 and 2011, and hit .258/.300/.348.
