LOS ANGELES -- Injured Dodgers reliever Cory Wade was scheduled to begin a Minor League rehab assignment Saturday night at Class A Inland Empire. Wade had shoulder surgery in the spring. The Dodgers also have promoted prospects Jerry Sands, Aaron Miller and Will Savage from Class A. Sands, a slugging first baseman, was hitting .333 with 18 homers and 46 RBIs in 69 games at Great Lakes. He's already hit home runs in his first two games at Double-A Chattanooga.
Miller, the supplemental pick in last year's First-Year Player Draft, was 2-4 with a 2.77 ERA in 13 starts for Inland Empire. In his first start at Chattanooga, Miller allowed two runs in six innings. Savage, a 25th-round pick from the University of Oklahoma, was 6-2 with a 2.80 ERA in 13 starts at Great Lakes. He's been promoted to Inland Empire.
