Dodgers Outright Alfredo Silverio to Triple-A

The Dodgers have outrighted outfielder Alfredo Silverio to Triple-A Albuquerque, reports Ken Gurnick of MLB.com. The Dodgers now have four openings on their 40-man roster.

Silverio, considered one of the organization's better outfield prospects a year ago, was seriously injured during a car accident in his native Dominican Republic on January 23. Silverio missed the entire 2012 season because of the injuries he sustained in the crash including a severe concussion and damage to his throwing elbow, which required Tommy John surgery in May.

The 24-year-old was coming off a breakthrough season in 2011 when he hit .306/.340/.542 with 16 homers and 90 runs scored for Double-A Chattanooga.
