PHOENIX -- And the hurts just keep on coming from the Dodgers, who were without infielders Kiké Hernandez and Alex Guerrero on Saturday.

Hernandez, who has been filling in at shortstop for the injured Corey Seager, last played Thursday because of lingering pain in his side near the oblique, where he was hit by a pitch March 20.

Manager Dave Roberts said Hernandez was able to swing in the batting cage on Saturday and would return to the lineup "in the next couple of days."

Guerrero, who missed a week earlier in the spring with a left knee sprain, hasn't played since March 20 after aggravating the knee and Roberts said starting the season on the disabled list is a possibility. There was no indication how long Guerrero will be out. He has played only nine of the Dodgers' 26 games through Saturday.

Roberts also said Seager, rehabbing from a sprained left knee, hit, ran and played defense in a Minor League game on Saturday.
