Dodgers lose Onelki Garcia to White Sox

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers lost left-handed pitcher Onelki Garcia through a waiver claim by the Chicago White Sox on Thursday.

Garcia, 25, was one of the Dodgers' top pitching prospects entering last season, but he didn't pitch at the major-league level as he recovered from elbow and knee surgeries the previous winter. The Cuban exile pitched one rocky minor-league rehab game for Class A Rancho Cucamonga in August and didn't pitch again the rest of the season.

Thursday is the deadline to set 40-man rosters to protect players from the Dec. 11 Rule 5 draft. The Dodgers put pitchers Zach Lee and Chris Reed, and outfielder Scott Schebler on the 40-man roster.
