Turned ankle keeps Uribe out of Dodgers' lineup

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe was in Tuesday night's lineup, then he wasn't, but manager Don Mattingly said the condition of Uribe's turned right ankle hadn't improved from the time he injured it Monday night.

Luis Cruz, promoted from Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday, started at third base for Uribe, who missed a month earlier this season with an arthritic left wrist.

"X-rays were negative and he's day to day," Mattingly said of Uribe. "I thought he'd be OK, but at that point he wasn't. He woke up sore."

If Uribe goes on the disabled list, it would be the 17th time a Dodgers player was disabled this year.
