The cross-town Dodgers are in talks to sign veteran outfielder Bobby Abreu, who was released by the Angels on Friday, baseball sources told MLB.com's Ken Gurnick on Wednesday. With the Dodgers, Abreu would likely serve as a fifth outfielder and lefty pinch-hitter.
Torii Hunter scored two runs in a 2-for-4 performance in the Angels' 9-0 win over the Twins on Wednesday, giving him 1,000 runs for his career.
The consecutive shutouts by Jered Weaver (no-hitter) and Jerome Williams mark the first time the Angels had done that since Sept. 28-29, 2006, vs. the Athletics. It's the first back-to-back individual shutouts since Bert Blyleven and Kirk McCaskill on Aug. 2-3, 1989.
