Corcino signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers on Wednesday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Corcino made four appearances last season across Double-A Tulsa and Double-A Pensacola, conceding six earned runs in 6.2 innings with 11 strikeouts and eight walks. While his high strikeout total bodes well for his future, eight walks in 6.2 innings will be a big problem if he is to advance through the Dodgers' system.
After designating him for assignment on Wednesday, pitcher Daniel Corcino cleared waivers on Friday and was sent outright to the Dodgers' Double-A team in Tulsa, per TrueBlueLA.com.Corcino was selected off waivers by Dodgers from the Reds on April 17. Corcino appeared in five games for the Reds, starting three, in 2014, where he went 0-2 with a 4.34 ERA.

Cedeno appeared in five games for Washington, posting a 6.00 ERA with four strikeouts in three innings of work. He'll join the team's 25-man roster and will likely be available starting Friday, MLB.com reports. "He spins the ball real well and he's got a good feel for pitching," president of baseball operationas Andrew Friedman said. "We feel like there's potentially some tweaks here or there that could potentially untap more. But he's got the necessary ingredients to potentially be good. So we'll see what we have with him after our guys get a chance to work with him." The Dodgers cleared a roster spot for Cedeno Wednesday when they designated pitcher Daniel Corcino for assignment. Corcino appeared in just one game four Double-A Tulsa, last 2/3 of an inning with one strikeout and three walks.
