Green accepts assignment to Albuquerque

LOS ANGELES -- Utility infielder Nick Green, designated for assignment by the Dodgers on May 28, cleared waivers and accepted an assignment to Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday.

Green spent 24 days with the Dodgers after being called up on May 4 after shortstop Rafael Furcal went on the disabled list.

Green joins Chin-lung Hu and Ivan DeJesus Jr. at Albuquerque, providing added infield depth with Casey Blake having suffered a back injury and Blake DeWitt struggling offensively.
