From Dylan Hernandez at the LA Times:
Infielder Tony Abreu is expected to be called up today from triple-A Albuquerque and right-hander Ronald Belisario threw a scoreless inning for Class-A Inland Empire in what Manager Joe Torre said would probably be the last game of his minor league rehabilitation assignment.
Eric Stults was pulled from his start in Albuquerque on Thursday night after only three innings, a sign that he could be promoted to replace Jason Schmidt as the Dodgers' starter in San Francisco on Monday. Stults, who was in the rotation until a sprained thumb landed him on the disabled list on May 31, bumped fists with teammates and waved at Albuquerque Manager Tim Wallach as he exited the game.
And a look at what other teams are doing, from my one-stop shop for transaction fodder, MLB Trade Rumors:
- Yanks Acquire Chad Gaudin
- Twins Acquire Carl Pavano
- A's Release Jason Giambi
- A's Sign Brett Tomko
- Red Sox Sign Paul Byrd
- Yankees Sign Russ Ortiz
What do you think? Will the Dodgers be working the waiver wire, or will they go with internal options?
