Bobby Abreu linked with shock MLB return

Published Add your comment

The Cleveland Indians, not content with recruiting one veteran outfielder in Jeff Francoeur, are “very interested” in signing two-time All-Star Bobby Abreu, according to Indians reporter Tony Lastoria.

The 39-year-old Venezuelan outfielder turned out for the Astros, Phillies, Yankees, Angels and Dodgers in an illustrious career spanning sixteen years but has not played in the MLB since October 2, 2012.

Having sat out the entire 2013 season Abreu is rumored to be keen on a return.

Abreu has been keeping his eye in in his native Venezuela, performing well in the winter league for Caracas, batting .322 with a .416 on-base percentage and .461 slugging percentage.

As with Jeff Francoeur, any deal for Abreu would surely be on a minor league contract with the Indians already boasting a deep roster of outfielders.

But as a former winner of the National League’s Gold Glove and Silver Slugger Awards the veteran has the potential to defy doubters should he return.
