Bobby Abreu Crosses Town And Signs With Dodgers

CHICAGO (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers have signed Bobby Abreu one week after the Angels cut the slumping outfielder.

Abreu hit .208 in 24 at-bats before the last-place Angels let him go last Friday. He didn’t have to go very far to find another job, opting for a reserve role with the NL West-leading Dodgers.

The 38-year-old Abreu is in the last season of a $27 million, three-year contract and is due $9 million this year. He is a career .293 hitter with 284 homers, 1,330 RBIs and 393 stolen bases. He previously played for Houston, Philadelphia and the New York Yankees.

Infielder Justin Sellers was optioned to the Triple-A Albuquerque to make room on the roster.
