Dodgers Release Angel Berroa

The Dodgers have released infielder Angel Berroa, reports's Ken Gurnick. The club is confident they have a long-term fill-in for Rafael Furcal in-house if needed, and they wanted to give Berroa enough time to catch on with another team before the season starts.

Berroa, 30, hasn't been a productive big leaguer since his Rookie of the Year campaign in 2003. He's a .249/.291/.353 hitter in over 2,000 plate appearances since then, though his numbers at Triple-A during the last three years are promising. At the very least, he can play all over the infield.

More likely Chin-Lung Hu unless Torre elects to carry 12 pitchers and Garrett Anderson as a fifth OF/1B/PH.

I think Anderson makes the club and Dougie gets the shaft.

Is 30 his actual age or is it based upon the age that he claimed he was before he signed his big contract with KC? Maybe it just seems like he should be older than that after his painful years in KC and expensive time in Omaha.
