LOS ANGELES -- Disabled Dodgers shortstop Dee Gordon was set to begin a Minor League rehab stint on Sunday at Class A Rancho Cucamonga that has been extended to three games.
Gordon originally was scheduled for only two games. But this means he won't return until Thursday for the make up game in Pittsburgh -- and rosters will have expanded by then, so a corresponding move won't be necessary for his activation.
Mattingly would not provide an indication about callups for the Sept. 1 roster expansion, other than to say "fewer than 10." Among the players most likely to be called up -- reliever Josh Lindblom, outfielder Jerry Sands and catcher Tim Federowicz.
