Dodgers claim Brown from Rockies, DFA Johnson

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers aren't letting the postseason disrupt their incessant roster manipulation, as they claimed right-handed pitcher Brooks Brown from the Rockies on Wednesday while designating for assignment reliever Jim Johnson.

Brown, 30, pitched in 36 games this year with a 4.91 ERA, but he was sidelined with right shoulder inflammation.
