Tony Gwynn Jr., who was designated for assignment by the Los Angeles Dodgers earlier this week, has accepted his assignment to Triple-A, reports Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times:

Gwynn was designated for assignment to make room on the Dodgers’ roster for outfielder/first baseman Jerry Sands. Sands, himself, was optioned back to Triple-A last night as the corresponding move to infielder Adam Kennedy’s activation from the disabled list.

Over 259 at-bats with the Dodgers this season, Gwynn has hit .232/.276/.293 with eight doubles, four triples and thirteen stolen bases in nineteen attempts. He owns a career line at the major league level of .244/.312/.318 over seven seasons.

This will mark Gwynn’s first stint in the minors since the 2009 season, when he appeared in thirty-eight games with the Milwaukee Brewers’ Triple-A affiliate. Over Gwynn’s 1100 at-bats at the Triple-A level, he’s hit .291/.351/.369.
