The  Dodgers outrighted outfielder Alfredo Silverio to Triple-A Albuquerque in a procedural move to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.

Silverio, 25, was coming off a breakthrough season with the Chattanooga Lookouts in his eighth professional year, which included four seasons in the Dominican Rookie League. In 2011, he hit .306 with 16 homers, 85 RBIs, 90 runs for Chattanooga, and was added to the 40-man roster last November to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft.

Silverio, considered one of the organization's better outfield prospects a year ago, was seriously injured in a January auto accident in his native Dominican Republic and missed the entire 2012 season.

Silverio suffered a serious concussion and other injuries, eventually undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right (throwing) elbow in May.

With players that have declared free agency and the reinstatement of players that finished the season on the 60-day disabled list, the Dodgers roster now counts 36.
