Uribe gets cortisone shot, DL possible
DENVER -- Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe received a cortisone shot in his injured left wrist Tuesday night and if he hasn't responded by Friday, he will probably be placed on the disabled list, manager Don Mattingly said on Wednesday.

"Juan seems a little worse to me than the last time," Mattingly said of Uribe, who aggravated an injury he originally sustained last month sliding into home plate. "He's a little more concerned. He got an injection last night and we hope it helps him. We should know a lot by [Thursday]."

Because the aggravation occurred swinging a bat, Uribe can't be counted on for pinch-hitting. That leaves Mattingly short-handed on the bench, which already was a problem Tuesday night.

"You don't want to go long [without him]," Mattingly said. "If he could pinch-hit, at least it's like having a guy. It is hard in this league without a guy. You feel like you're going to run out of guys every day. You don't want to play short or your hands are tied."

Mattingly said there was nothing new to report about starting pitcher Ted Lilly's stiff oblique muscle. Lilly did his pregame running, but his status for his next scheduled start won't be determined at least until after his Friday bullpen session.
