The Los Angeles Dodgers announced on Monday night that Russ Mitchell, the longtime minor leaguer who was designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Todd Coffey last week, was added to major league camp in spring training at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona as a non-roster invitee.
