Dodgers invite Lance Cormier to camp

The Dodgers signed Lance Cormier to a minor-league deal with an invite to big-league camp, reports Tony Jackson of ESPNLosAngeles.com, who has details.

Interestingly, Cormier is two years younger than Matt Guerrier, who signed a big three-year deal with the Dodgers in the offseason,

Cormier, 30, has been effective at times over the past three years pitching for the Orioles and Rays, with a 3.71 ERA, though he has still allowed 316 baserunners in 211 innings with only 112 strikeouts. As a righty, he has long odds for making the Opening Day roster but could be in the midseason mix if he stays in the minors.
