Dodgers signed RHP Juan Abreu to a minor league contract.

Abreu has posted gaudy strikeout totals in the minors, including last year while at Triple-A with the Blue Jays, but he also had a 6.80 ERA with Toronto. He'll provide minor league depth.

Astros optioned RHP Juan Abreu to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

This one comes as a minor surprise, as Abreu looked like he had a legitimate chance at a bullpen spot after posting a 2.70 ERA and 12/3 K/BB ratio over 6 2/3 innings down the stretch last season. His control is an issue, but he should be in the Astros' bullpen at some point in 2012.

Astros acquired RHP Juan Abreu, RHP Paul Clemens, LHP Brett Oberholtzer and OF Jordan Schafer from the Braves for OF Michael Bourn and cash.

Abreu, 26, turned in a 2.25 ERA and 68/27 K/BB ratio in 48 innings of relief this season at Triple-A Gwinnett. He's far from a top prospect, but the right-hander could rise quickly to Houston and may eventually become a quality big league setup man.

Braves purchased the contract of RHP Juan Abreu from Triple-A Gwinnett.

The 24-year-old Abreu posted a 3.67 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 16 saves in 36 relief appearances between Class A Wilmington and Double-A Northwest Arkansas in 2009 with the Royals organization. His impressive heater should lead to an eventual big league career. Parr has had good peripherals at every level and is worth keeping an eye on in dynasty formats.
