Gibbons back with Dodgers after bout with flu
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Outfielder Jay Gibbons returned to workouts Tuesday after missing four days and losing five pounds because of the flu.

Gibbons went half-speed and said he was tired by the end of the morning. Manager Don Mattingly said before the workout that Gibbons might be able to serve as designated hitter in Wednesday's game, but Gibbons might need an extra day.

"I went two days without eating anything," Gibbons said. "I started eating Monday. I hope tomorrow I'll feel well enough to DH. It's possible."
