More than a year after sustaining serious injuries in an off-season car accident, former top outfield prospect Alfredo Silverio will be back in spring training with the Dodgers.
Silverio, who was sidelined for all of 2012, was re-signed to a minor league contract that includes an invitation to major league camp.
The Dodgers have signed six other players to similar contracts: catcher Wilkin Castillo, infielders Ozzie Martinez and Nick Evans, right-handers Juan Abreu and Gregory Infante, and left-hander Kelvin De La Cruz.
Silverio, 25, played in the Futures Games in 2011, when he had a breakout season with double-A Chattanooga. That year, he batted .306 with 16 home runs and 85 runs batted in in the Southern League.
