Dodgers bring up Bobby Abreu

The Los Angeles Dodgers selected the contract of outfielder Bobby Abreu from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday.

The 38-year-old veteran was originally signed by the Dodgers on May 4 and batted .251 with eight doubles, two homers and 17 RBI in 70 games before being sent to the minors on Aug. 1.

Abreu began the season with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, but played just eight games with the club before being released.

Overall, Abreu is batting .246 with two homers and 22 RBI in 78 games in 2012.

Also on Sunday, the Dodgers recalled pitcher Chris Withrow from Double-A Chattanooga and placed him on the 60-day disabled list.
