Shawn Estes tells the San Jose Mercury News that he is only retired from Triple-A, not from baseball.
Estes was 3-4 with a 3.07 ERA with the Albuquerque Isotopes. He said he doesn't see himself as a minor league pitcher. Estes and his agent did not ask for a release, so the Dodgers still own his rights.
The Isotopes lost in Omaha today 9-0. They return home to fame Memphis tomorrow at 7:05 PM.
Tony Abreu has joined the Isotopes, called up from Double-A Chattanooga. He took the place of Carmen Cali who was released. He was signed by the Dodgers in 2002 as an amateur free agent.
He suffered a groin injury in 2007 that kept him out the 2008 season. Abreu made his Major League debut on May 22 against the Milwaukee Brewers. Welcome to Albuquerque, Tony.
