Carroll needs a few days to let finger heal
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Jamey Carroll was unable to throw comfortably Sunday after taking a pitch off his right index finger Saturday, but X-rays were negative.

Carroll was able to hit despite the swelling in the finger and will probably need a few more days before he can return to game action.

Carroll took a Jose Arredondo pitch near the base of the finger while trying to bunt against the Reds. He said doctors were more concerned with the tip of the finger, which he broke last season but never had X-rayed.

With Rafael Furcal scheduled for a day off and Carroll working out in Glendale, Justin Sellers started at shortstop for the Dodgers against the Cubs on Sunday and committed a pair of errors on the first ball hit to him, leading to an unearned run.

Marcus Thames, who doubled in a run Sunday but has not played the field in a week because of a sore heel, is expected to return to left field Monday against Colorado. Jay Gibbons, set back by missing four games with the flu, also is expected to return to left field by Tuesday.
