Rumor Mill : Dodgers Hot On Abreu

It might be an off day for the Dodgers ball-club, but the front office will be hard at work today.

Last Friday, the Anaheim Angels cut Bobby Abreu to make room for 20-year-old Mike Trout. Yesterday, Dodgers introduced the new ownership group and much more! Today, Ned Colletti has his first test with new ownership in trying to land Abreu:

#dodgers are in serious talks w/ abreu. not done deal, as details need to be worked out. sev other teams showing interest 2

You read here earlier this week about how the Dodgers should steer clear of Abreu. However, yesterday we learned that he would be available at a pro-rated portion of the MLB minimum and apparently willing to take a part-time role.

This changes things.

Abreu on the cheap would allow us to use him in the outfield, first base and as a pinch hitter. It would provide the Dodgers with greater depth in case of injury or future trade, as well as a pinch hitter who had 21 stolen bases last year. Clearly a good thing for the Dodgers.

The question is: Will another team offer him a better role? I have a feeling we’ll know today.
