Nori Nakamura
The Dodgers designated Nori Nakamura to the minor leagues Sunday evening to make room on the 40-man roster for infielder Oscar Robles.

Nakamura, who signed a minor-league deal with the Dodgers in February, will be placed on waivers, giving all teams an opportunity to acquire him. “I felt like I’m not needed by the team,” Nakamura said.

The feeling’s likely mutual, Nori. Nakamura hit .128 with three RBIs and no homers in 17 games (although if you look at his splits he hit a nifty .300 in day games). He can now be safely dropped from your fantasy baseball roster.
