Abreu goes back to Philly doctor

This won’t fit in tomorrow’s notebook, so I’m putting it here. Tony Abreu went back to the doctor in Philadelphia, Dr. William Meyers, who surgically repaired Abreu’s sports hernia last Oct. 3. The visit was scheduled because Tony continues to experience abdominal issues, as well as the right buttocks strain he suffered in the one game he played this spring. Club officials aren’t sure how to respond to this because Abreu, according to sources, isn’t very good at communicating what he is feeling physically, and that goes way beyond the fact that he doesn’t speak much English. At any rate, it is becoming increasingly apparent that the Dodgers need to get a 3B from outside the organization, especially with Nomar still not able to play and with Blake DeWitt having failed to make two plays in today’s game, one a liner over his head that he didn’t really jump for and the other a hot one-hopper that skipped past his glove and up the line for a double.
