Dodgers Designate Trent Oeltjen For Assignment

The Dodgers have designated outfielder Trent Oeltjen for assignment, according to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times (via Twitter).  The club also promoted utility man Elian Herrera from Triple-A and placed Juan Uribe on the disabled list.

Oeltjen, 29, appeared in 61 games for the Dodgers in 2011.  The Australian owns a slash line of .301/.360/.473 across parts of six Triple-A seasons with the Twins, D'Backs, Brewers, and Dodgers.

Elian Herrera… That controversial kid from Cuba?

Oeltjen seems like he’s been up & down with the Dodgers since the seventies… yet he’s only 29.  For a cheaply compensated guy they called up semi-regularly, he’s had some decent games, I think he almost hit for the cycle last year.  Hopefully he can find a spot where he can some MLB at bats although without looking it up I hear he hasn’t been so great this year at ALB.

 Yeah he’s an interesting player.  Not a ton of power but he’s been a pretty good hitter for AVG in the minors.  Hasn’t been having the best year so far, though.
