Free agent outfielder/DH Bobby Abreu is drawing interest from some National League teams, Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports reports (Twitter links). The Angels released the left-handed hitter over the weekend, making him a free agent.
Abreu started the 2012 season slowly for the Angels, who didn't have room for him on a roster full of outfielders and DH options. However, the 38-year-old posted a .353 on-base percentage with 21 stolen bases and 78 walks last year. Abreu, a client of Peter E. Greenberg & Associates, is available for a pro-rated portion of the MLB minimum at this point. The Angels are responsible for the remainder of his $9MM salary. The Tigers aren't actively pursuing Abreu, Morosi writes.
