PHOENIX -- Jamey Wright was officially added to the 40-man roster on Tuesday, clearing the way for him to make the Dodgers' opening-day roster as a reliever. The Dodgers cleared a place for him on the 40-man roster by moving Blake Hawksworth to the 60-day disabled list. Wright, who came into camp on a minor-league contract, said the previous day that General Manager Ned Colletti told him he would make the opening-day roster. He will draw a base salary of $900,000. Wright can earn an additional $500,000 in incentives: $62,500 for 40 games pitched, $62,500 for 45 games pitched, $75,000 for 50 games pitched, $100,000 for 55 games pitched, $100,000 for 60 games pitched and $100,000 for 65 games pitched.

Prince Fielder was traded to the Texas Rangers in a blockbuster deal Wednesday night that sent second baseman Ian Kinsler to the Detroit Tigers. Detroit gave the Rangers $30 million as part of the trade, according to a person with knowledge of the deal. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the amount of money exchanged was not revealed when the teams announced the move. Fielder had to consent to the trade before it could be completed. The big first baseman signed a $214-million, nine-year contract with the Tigers before the 2012 season that includes a limited no-trade provision.

Right-handed pitchers Steven Ames and Matt Magill were promoted to the Dodgers' 40-man roster, making them ineligible to be selected by other teams in the Rule 5 draft next month. The Dodgers now have 38 players on their 40-man roster. Ames, a 24-year-old reliever, saved 18 games and posted a 1.54 earned-run average for double-A Chattanooga this year. He struck out 72 batters in 63 1/3 innings. Magill, 23, was 11-8 with a 3.75 ERA in 26 starts for Chattanooga. He struck out 168 batters in 146 1/3 innings.

Rudy Seanez will begin spring training on the Dodgers' 40-man roster, unlike a year ago, when he went to camp with a minor league contract. But the 39-year old right-hander will again have to earn his spot on the team. Seanez re-signed with the Dodgers on Monday, agreeing to a non-guaranteed major league contract with a base salary of $550,000. Incentives could push the value of the contract up to $1.3 million. "It's nothing new to me," Seanez said. "I'm used to it.

Craig Clayton was reading the small print in the sports section last weekend when he spotted an interesting item: The Seattle Mariners had added him to their 40-man, big-league roster. Sometimes a guy is the last to know about his own promotion. And even before the Thanksgiving weekend, Clayton said, he still "hadn't heard" from the Mariners. He celebrated anyway. "If it's in the newspaper, I figure it has to be official," said Clayton, a former All-American at Cal State Northridge.

DETROIT - The Angels on Tuesday acquired outfielder Collin Cowgill from the New York Mets for minor league outfielder Kyle Johnson. Cowgill, who was designated for assignment by the Mets on June 18, was added to the 40-man roster and optioned to triple-A Salt Lake. Cowgill, 27, has played 97 big-league games with Arizona (2011), Oakland (2012) and New York (2013), batting .237 with four home runs and 26 runs batted in, and he was the opening-day center fielder for the Mets this season, becoming the second player in franchise history to hit a grand slam on opening day.

Scott Van Slyke will get another chance to show he can play in the major leagues. Van Slyke, the Dodgers' minor league player of the year in 2011, was promoted from triple-A Albuquerque on Friday to provide outfield depth. Utilityman Elian Herrera was sent back to Albuquerque, three days after he was called up. When Van Slyke was in the major leagues for the first time last season, he looked overmatched, batting .167 in 54 at-bats. The Dodgers removed him from their 40-man roster over the winter.

A kid steps up, goes down and is replaced by an even less experienced kid. Welcome to the new world of the Los Angeles Dodgers, who announced Monday that Javy Guerra was going on the 15-day disabled list with a sore right knee and would be replaced by Shawn Tolleson, who will be making his major-league debut. There had been no indication that Guerra, who was called up last year and surpassed all expectations, was injured. He did, however, struggle in his last outing Saturday against the Rockies, giving up two hits and a walk in one-third of an inning.

We were gathered around Don Mattingly after the Dodgers' victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday, when a radio reporter put a microphone in front of the manager's face and commented on how James Loney had been hitting better of late and wondered whether the first baseman had changed anything. The room broke out in laughter, or maybe it was just me. “I hope not,” Mattingly said. Loney is the king of tinker, which has been an ongoing problem during his six-year career.
