Billingsley set to resume Minor League rehab

DENVER -- Dodgers pitcher Chad Billingsley resumes his Minor League rehab assignment on Sunday for Class A Rancho Cucamonga.

Billingsley, recovering from last year's Tommy John surgery, had advanced to make one rehab start in early April, but felt a pop in the elbow during that game and was shut down with flexor tendinitis.

He received a platelet-rich plasma injection and slowly resumed his rehabilitation. Although no timetable has been given for his return, the All-Star break is a likely target.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said injured players Carl Crawford, A.J. Ellis and Juan Uribe continue to make progress, but none is ready for a rehab assignment.
