Uribe's rehab slowed down by sports hernia
PITTSBURGH -- Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly said the team's other primary third baseman this season, Juan Uribe, "took a little step back" in his rehabilitation from an injury that has had him on the disabled list for the past six weeks.

Mattingly said Uribe's ailment has been re-characterized as a sports hernia (he's officially listed as out due to a left hip strain), and that surgery to correct it is now an option after it did not respond well when it was pushed this week. Mattingly said "it doesn't look like" Uribe will return this season.

"The agent and the player at this point need to make a decision and make sure they're doing their due diligence on exactly what they want to do and what's the best thing from here," Mattingly said when asked if surgery was likely.
