Dodgers outright Alfredo Silverio to Triple-A

Christian Petersen

Silverio spent the 2012 season recovering from injuries sustained in a serious car accident.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have outrighted former top outfield prospect Alfredo Silverio off of their 40-man roster, reports Ken Gurnick of MLB.com:

The Dodgers outrighted outfielder Alfredo Silverio to Triple-A Albuquerque in a procedural move to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.

Silverio, considered one of the organization's better outfield prospects a year ago, was seriously injured in a January auto accident in his native Dominican Republic and missed the entire 2012 season.

The 24-year-old Silverio suffered a major concussion in the accident along with several other injuries, eventually undergoing Tommy John surgery in May to repair damage to his right elbow.

After five seasons working his way through the low minors, Silverio had a breakout season in 2011 at the Dodgers’ Double-A affiliate in Chattanooga, hitting .306/.340/.542 with sixteen home runs in one hundred thirty games. Silverio was ranked the No. 4 prospect in the Dodgers organization by Baseball America before suffering his serious injuries in the January car crash.
