Angels signed OF Trent Oeltjen to a minor league contract.

It's not clear whether he'll be given an invitation to spring training. Oeltjen, 29, batted .294/.356/.485 at Triple-A with the Dodgers this season but has done very little in his time in the majors. He's merely organizational depth.

Dodgers designated OF Trent Oeltjen for assignment.

The move was made in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Elian Herrera. Oeltjen is batting just .218/.283/.282 at Triple-A Albuquerque this season and should clear waivers and remain in the organization.

Dodgers optioned OF Trent Oeltjen to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Oeltjen batted .278 with a .318 on-base percentage this spring, but he's too far down the Dodgers' outfield depth chart. He will function as organizational depth.

Trent Oeltjen went 0-for-3 and struck out twice in the loss to the Astros on Friday.

The Dodgers probably won't give Oeltjen too long of a look if he doesn't start hitting soon. He's 2-for-11 with five strikeouts and two walks in his three starts. Maybe he'd be OK as a fourth or fifth outfielder, but there isn't a lot of upside here.

Dodgers purchased the contract of OF Trent Oeltjen from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Oeltjen, 28, has hit .339/.429/.583 with eight homers and 34 RBI in 56 games this season at the Triple-A level. The Dodgers will give him playing time in left field and hope that the momentum carries over.

Dodgers signed OF Trent Oeltjen to a minor league contract.

The Dodgers non-tendered Oeltjen last week but moved quickly to bring him back into the fold. The 27-year-old batted .347/.416/.563 with five home runs, 33 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 199 at-bats with Triple-A Albuquerque. He hit .217 with a .357 on-base percentage in 14 games for the Dodgers after a September call-up.

Dodgers non-tendered OF Trent Oeltjen.

Oeltjen is now a free agent and allowed to sign with any interested team. The 27-year-old batted .347/.416/.563 with five home runs, 33 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 199 at-bats with Triple-A Albuquerque. He should draw interest from teams seeking a quality fourth or fifth outfielder.

Dodgers purchased the contract of OF Trent Oeltjen from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Oeltjen, 27, signed with the Dodgers in July and batted .347/.416/.563 with five home runs, 33 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 199 at-bats with Triple-A Albuquerque. He'll be an extra outfielder down the stretch.

Dodgers signed OF Trent Oeltjen to a minor league contract.

Oeltjen exercised the out-clause in his minor league contract with the Brewers last week. He was hitting .301/.355/.496 with eight homers and 38 RBI with Triple-A Nashville. The 27-year-old outfielder was assigned to Triple-A Albuquerque and will likely function as organizational depth.

Trent Oeltjen left Friday's game against the Athletics after being plunked in the left wrist by Andrew Bailey.

The official diagnosis is a contusion of the left wrist. He'll likely be out of action for a few days. Oeltjen, 27, was signed to a minor league contract by the Brewers in December after hitting .243/.250/.457 with three home runs, four doubles and four RBI in 70 at-bats last season.

Fri, Dec 4, 2009 03:16:00 PM

Diamondbacks sent outfielder Trent Oeltjen outright to Triple-A Reno.

Arizona has cleared five 40-man roster spots in about 24 hours. Oeltjen showed surprising power in his first taste of the majors, but hit just .243/.250/.457 in 73 plate appearances overall and doesn't project as more than a fifth outfielder.
Thu, Nov 5, 2009 02:47:00 PM

Diamondbacks recalled outfielder Trent Oeltjen from Triple-A Reno.

Oeltjen, 26, hit .250/.257/.471 with four doubles, three home runs and four RBI in 68 at-bats with Arizona earlier this season. He'll be given random starts down the stretch as the D'Backs finish up a disappointing 2009 campaign and work toward righting the ship next year.
Tue, Sep 8, 2009 08:34:00 PM

Diamondbacks optioned outfielder Trent Oeltjen to Triple-A Reno.

The D'Backs have determined that Chris Young is once again worthy of a major league roster spot. Oeltjen, 26, hit .250/.257/.471 with four doubles, three home runs and four RBI in 68 at-bats with Arizona. He's likely to return when rosters expand on September 1.
