Uribe to begin rehab stint on Friday
PHILADELPHIA -- Juan Uribe will begin a rehab assignment for his arthritic wrist Friday and could return to third base for the Dodgers by Monday, but manager Don Mattingly said that doesn't mean hot-hitting rookie Elian Herrera won't keep playing.

"There's plenty of spots for everybody," said Mattingly. "He can play the outfield, and second base is still there. He's been in there pretty much every day. He gets two hits every day and game-winning hits and he keeps playing, you know what I'm saying? The game tells you what to do. He hits .440 and drives in runs, well, OK?"

Mattingly said Matt Treanor caught Chad Billingsley on Tuesday night instead of Chris Capuano on Wednesday night, because A.J. Ellis was out with a bruised left shin, which he suffered when he was hit by a pitch Monday night. Ellis returned to the lineup Wednesday to catch Capuano, snapping Treanor's streak of catching seven consecutive Capuano starts. (The Dodgers went 5-2 in that span.)

"I never matched them up on purpose," Mattingly said of the Capuano-Treanor battery. "It was working out good, but I don't really want to get stuck in that."
