Uribe set to begin three-game rehab stint
PHILADELPHIA -- Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe will fly back to Los Angeles on Wednesday and start a three-game rehabilitation assignment with Class A Rancho Cucamonga, with his anticipated activation from the disabled list Monday.

Manager Don Mattingly said that Uribe, sidelined since May 14 with an arthritic left wrist, will regain his starting job when he returns.

Mattingly has started five other players at third base this season, and the team has had the most success with Adam Kennedy there, going 12-4. Jerry Hairston, Justin Sellers, Elian Herrera and Ivan De Jesus Jr. have also started at third for the Dodgers.

In other medical news, Mattingly said Sellers' recovery from a herniated disk in his back is going slowly with continued tingling in his toes; Ted Lilly continues treatment with medical director Stan Conte in Los Angeles; Mark Ellis continues his recovery from lower leg surgery; and Matt Guerrier reported improvement in his elbow tendinitis after receiving another platelet-rich plasma injection last week.
