Monasterios shaky in Triple-A rehab outing

Monasterios shaky in Triple-A rehab outing

SAN FRANCISCO -- Dodgers right-hander Carlos Monasterios, on the 15-day disabled list, began an injury rehab assignment for Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday night, and it didn't go very well.

Monasterios, disabled with a finger blister he didn't think was serious, was charged with five runs (four earned) in 3 2/3 innings, four strikeouts and three walks. Monasterios' return would provide needed depth for the Dodgers' bullpen.

As a Rule 5 pick, he cannot be sent to the Minor Leagues without clearing waivers and most likely would be lost back to Philadelphia.

Meanwhile, reliever Cory Wade allowed one run on two hits in a one-inning rehab appearance for Class A Inland Empire. Wade is returning from spring shoulder surgery.
