Dodgers Sign Trent Oeltjen, Release Timo Perez

The Dodgers signed one former big league outfielder and released another. John Traub, the GM of the Dodgers' Triple A affiliate, confirmed to MLBTR via e-mail that the Albuquerque Isotopes added Trent Oeltjen and cut Timo Perez

The Brewers signed Oeltjen over the winter after he posted a .707 OPS in 73 plate appearances for the D'Backs last year. The Brewers stashed the 27-year-old Australian at Triple A, where he posted a strong .301/.355/.498 line in nearly 300 trips to the plate. Oeltjen opted out of his Brewers deal last week, since the team had yet to call him to the majors.

Longtime baseball fans will remember Perez for his breakout 2000 season on the NL Champion Mets. Now 35, Perez hasn't appeared in the majors since 2007. He had a respectable .296/.336/.426 line in 123 Triple A plate appearances.
