Meanwhile, outfielder Carl Crawford started a rehab assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque Saturday night after missing six weeks with a sprained ankle, but he was limited to four innings because of a rain delay.
Scheduled to play six innings, according to Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, Crawford, playing left field, went 1-for-2 with a run scored. His single was a line drive and he went from first to third on Jamie Romak's single.
But after a rain delay of more than an hour, Crawford was replaced when play resumed. He is expected to play five or six games for Albuquerque, Mattingly said.
Mattingly said he's "not that worried" about the disruption Crawford's return could cause.
"We'll deal with it when he gets here," said Mattingly. "We're playing good and I don't expect too many changes messing with it."
But Mattingly cautioned not to conclude that means Crawford won't play.
"You never know what happens in five or six days," he said. "Things tend to work themselves out."
