Dodgers Promote Bobby Abreu From Triple A

The Los Angeles Dodgers recalled outfielder Bobby Abreu from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday, according to an official press release from the team.

"The Los Angeles Dodgers today selected the contract of outfielder Bobby Abreu from Triple-A Albuquerque and recalled right-handed pitcher Chris Withrow from Double-A Chattanooga before placing him on the 60-day disabled list."

Abreu, 38, hit .353 in five games with Albuquerque. The Dodgers originally signed him on May 4.

"I'm glad he's here," manager Don Mattingly said. "It gives us another guy off the bench that has been around and will be comfortable up there. He knows what he is doing."

Abreu joins a crowded outfield featuring Shane Victorino, Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier.
