Dodgers deal with camp bumps and bruises
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Jamey Carroll had his right hand bandaged in ice after Saturday's 2-0 win over the Reds, but the Dodgers' infielder said he only bruised his index finger when a Jose Arredondo pitch nailed his third knuckle during a bunt attempt.

"It's a little swollen," said Carroll, who played the last month of the 2010 season with a broken tip of the same finger on his throwing hand. "They didn't X-ray it. They tested it and said they'll see how it is tomorrow."

On the pitch, Carroll bunted the ball fair, but the pitch was ruled a strike by umpire Brian Knight. Carroll was later retired.

Reliever Kenley Jansen, who had his bell rung Friday when he slipped and fell during a fielding drill and was knocked woozy, had his regularly scheduled bullpen session without incident.

Marcus Thames is expected to resume outfield play as early as Sunday, manager Don Mattingly said. Thames has been resting his right heel the past four days after a flareup of plantar fasciitis.

Jay Gibbons, who missed four games with the flu and has been serving as designated hitter, also will soon resume outfield play, Mattingly said.
