Dodgers Release Trio
The Los Angeles Dodgers said goodbye to 3-veterans announcing the release of infielder Shea Hillenbrand, Olmedo Saenz, and Roberto Hernandez. Hillenbrand hit .251 with 4HR and 31RBI, splitting time between the two Los Angeles teams. He did quite pathetic for the Angels, a team that paid the corner-infielder $6.5M to play for them this season. Saenz A.K.A. "The Killer Tomato" hit .191 with 4HR and 18RBI as the number one pinch hitter on the team. He had a very decent season in '06 for LA, hitting .296 with 11HR and 48RBI in 179AB's. As for Hernandez, his stints with Cleveland and LA didn't go well at all, going 3-3 with a 6.41 ERA in 46.1 IP's.
