BOBBY ABREU RUMORS & GOSSIP

Bobby Abreu proving everyone wrong so far

Just two months ago I sat in the living room of an off-campus house I rented with a few of my friends watching the Mets lose (well maybe not, but probably).  My friend Mark turned to me and said, “You know who the Mets should sign? Bobby Abreu.” “They actually did a few days ago,” I replied, then we both burst into laughter, me more out of pity, and him out of astonishment...

Bobby Abreu Has An April 30 Opt Out Clause

April 12 Mike Puma of the NY Post has learned that Bobby Abreu has an April 30 opt out clause on the deal he signed with the Mets. “Don’t be surprised if he’s with the Mets by end of month,” Puma says. April 11 When the Mets signed Bobby Abreu on March 31, I have to admit, I really didn’t understand that move, especially when the Mets have a crop of younger ball players...

Bobby Abreu deal official, Dodgers option Sellers

The Dodgers officially signed Bobby Abreu to a 1-year contract on Friday. He'll play the role of left-handed bat off the bench and part-time starter in left field (as he's done so in his first couple games). He came up in two key situations yesterday. Once he struck out and the other time, in the top of the ninth inning, he hit a ball right on the nose, but the Cubs...

Report: Angels trying to trade Abreu to Indians

The Los Angeles Angels are trying to put together a trade that would send outfielder Bobby Abreu to the Cleveland Indians, CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman reported Thursday. Abreu's playing time probably would be limited with the Angels because of the many outfielders and designated hitters on the roster.

Bobby Abreu should have a busy spring

Tempe, Ariz. It might be unrealistic for the Angels to get Bobby Abreu the playing time he desires this season, but the veteran outfielder should get more than his fill of plate appearances this spring.
