Bobby Abreu Designated for Assignment By LA Dodgers

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers designated two-time All-Star outfielder Bobby Abreu for assignment on Wednesday. Newly-acquired outfielder Shane Victorino will take Abreu’s spot on the 25-man roster.

“Bobby came at a time when we had some guys hurt and did a good job for us,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “He’s another guy in the clubhouse who’s been good, who’s been good with young players.”

L.A. signed Abreu as a free agent on May 4 after he was cut loose by the Los Angeles Angels. In 70 games with the Dodgers, the 38-year-old batted .251 with two homers and 17 RBIs.
