Dodgers select contract of Daniel Corcino

The Los Angeles Dodgers today selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Daniel Corcino from Triple-A Oklahoma City (#56).
 
Corcino, 27, who will appear on a Major League roster for the first time since 2014, appeared in a combined 14 games (six starts) with Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City going 3-1 with one save and has posted a 2.22 ERA (11 ER/44.2 IP). He has also struck out a combined 43 batters against 16 walks, while limiting the opposition to a .190 average. Corcino has spent the majority of the season with the OKC Dodgers, going 2-0 with a 1.95 ERA (8 ER/37.0 IP) and has held batters to a .182 average, while striking out 34 against 15 walks in 10 games (six starts). The right-hander was a non-roster invitee with the Dodgers during this past Spring Training and appeared in six Cactus League games, posting a 1.35 ERA (1 ER/6.2 IP) and struck out five against two walks.
 
Corcino, who is in his 11th professional season and his fourth year in the Dodger organization (2015-18), has appeared in five career big league games (three starts) all in 2014 with the Cincinnati Reds, going 0-2 with a 4.34 ERA (9 ER/18.2 IP) and limited hitters to a .188 average. The Dominican Republic native has appeared in 238 career minor league games (126 starts), going 51-55 with eight saves and has posted a 4.03 ERA, while holding the opposition to a .239 average with the Reds (2008-15), Dodgers (2015-18) and Cubs (2017) organizations.
 
To create room on the active roster the Dodgers optioned ambidextrous pitcher Pat Venditte to Triple-A Oklahoma City and to create room on the 40-man roster, the club transferred right-handed pitcher Dennis Santana to the 60-day disabled list with a right rotator cuff strain (retroactive to June 5).
 
Venditte, 32, who was recalled prior to last night's contest, appeared in the game against the Braves allowing one run on three hits over 0.2 innings of relief. Over five appearances with the Dodgers this season, the switch-pitcher has allowed four runs over 4.1 innings (8.31 ERA) and has struck out four against one walk.
 
Santana, 22, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list prior to yesterday's games, made his Major League debut on June 1 against the Rockies, where he recorded his first win, allowing five runs on six hits and striking out four batters over 3.2 innings.
