The Los Angeles Dodger designated veteran outfielder Bobby Abreu for assignment last Wednesday.

He was active for last Wed. night’s game as he was appealing the suspension. He is predicted to get a hearing in 2 weeks.

“I was frustrated,” Mesoraco asserted. “I let my feelings out. But at the day’s end, I was doing it for my team.”

–The Cubs recalled right-handed pitchers Alberto Cabrera and Chris Volstad from Triple-A Iowa and optioned right-handed pitcher Casey Coleman.

Cabrera has never appeared in the big leagues. He’s got a mixed 4-1 with 5 saves and a 3.11 ERA in 36 appearances between Double-A Tennessee and Iowa this season.
