Uribe, Hawksworth begin, resume rehab
CINCINNATI -- Disabled Dodger Juan Uribe began a Minor League rehab assignment, and reliever Blake Hawksworth resumed his own Thursday night.

Uribe, out with a lower abdominal muscle strain, went 2-for-4 with a run scored for Class A Rancho Cucamonga against High Desert, while Hawksworth pitched a scoreless inning.

Hawksworth, disabled May 11 with what originally was believed to be a strained groin, cut short a rehab assignment a week ago and underwent additional tests, which revealed a hip injury. He received a cortisone injection a week ago and has resumed the rehab, allowing one hit Thursday night.

Hawksworth is one of five Dodgers relievers on the disabled list. He is already eligible to be activated.
