Herrera signed a minor-league deal with the Dodgers that includes an invite to spring training, the Los Angeles Daily News' J.P. Hoornstra reports. He originally signed with the Dodgers back in 2003 when he left the Dominican Republic, so it is a homecoming of sorts for Herrera. The 30-year-old spent the last two years playing for the Brewers, but it will be a lot tougher for him to find playing time with the big league club in Los Angeles.
Herrera was not tendered a contract by the Brewers. Aramis Ramirez's departure opened up regular playing time for Herrera in the second half, but the 30-year-old underwhelmed for the most part before a knee injury ended his season in mid-September. Look for him to at least attend spring training with another club, assuming the knee is back close to 100 percent by then.
Brewers infielder Elian Herrera (knee) is not in the lineup Tuesday. Herrera hasn't played since Sept. 19 when he collided with outfielder Shane Peterson while both players were trying to track down an errant fly ball. It's unclear if, or when, he will make a return to the Brewers this season.
Brewers third baseman Elian Herrera (knee) is not in the lineup Wednesday. Neither Herrera nor Shane Peterson has found themselves back in the lineup after colliding with one another during a game this weekend. It's fair to question if either player will return this season, however, more news regarding both players' injuries should be available later in the week.
Brewers infielder Elian Herrera was taken off the field in an ambulance cart after colliding with outfielder Shane Peterson in Saturday's game against the Reds, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Peterson's knee crashed into Herrera as the two players were attempting to run down a bloop fly ball near the foul line, prompting both players to leave the game due to injury. Herrera was transported on a back board and taken to an ambulance cart. Hernan Perez replaced Herrera at third base. More information should be available after the game. Herrera's X-rays on his injured knee came back negative, Haudricourt adds. Early reports suggest he may have suffered a deep knee contusion, however further testing will probably provide a more conclusive result. Peterson is suffering from a bruised knee and has at least one laceration on his arm stemming from the collision with Herrera.
