Meanwhile, left fielder Carl Crawford, who has been on the disabled list since May 27 with a left ankle sprain has begun running again after experiencing a setback at the team's training facility in Arizona.
"He was running today," Mattingly said Thursday. "I saw a video of him running on the field. I think he's going to start being able to do more and more, so he's back on track. He's going to be swinging the bat and getting back on the field."
Mattingly also said left-hander Scott Elbert was scheduled to throw another rehab outing -- about 25 pitches -- Thursday night.
