Bobby Abreu has accepted his minor league assignment and has been outrighted to Triple-A by the Los Angeles Dodgers, reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com:

Abreu was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on August 1 to make room on the club’s roster for outfielder Shane Victorino, who was acquired from the Philadelphia Phillies.

Abreu was released by the Los Angeles Angels in late April, but reached an agreement with the Dodgers soon after. The 38-year-old appeared in only eight games with the Angels this season, collecting five hits over twenty-four at-bats. He hit .251/.359/.341 with eight doubles and two home runs over 179 at-bats with the Dodgers.

This will mark the veteran’s first trip to the minors since 1997, when he played fifty games between the Houston Astros’ Double- and Triple-A affiliates.
