Berroa Released, Amezaga Reassigned
The Dodgers released infielder Angel Berroa Monday morning. Manager Joe Torre said the club is satisfied that Chin-lung Hu can fill in for shortstop Rafael Furcal on an extended basis if needed and wanted to give Berroa a chance to hook on with another club before the season started.
Late Sunday the Dodgers also reassigned to Minor League camp non-roster outfielder Alfredo Amezaga, who was signed after he underwent microfracture knee surgery with the understanding that he wouldn’t be game-ready until mid-season. He’ll continue his rehab at Camelback Ranch-Glendale. – Ken Gurnick
