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.


Dodger/Isotope News

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.

MLB.com is reporting tha Eric Stults is going to pitch for the Isotopes sometime this week. He pitched 4 1/3 innings for the Class-A Inland Empire 66ers on Monday and Stults said he needs to be able to throw 90 pitches to be effective.
