Four rehabbing Dodgers get in work at Class A
Rodriguez, Van Slyke, Peralta and League all appear in shutout win
ARLINGTON -- The Dodgers had a Rehab-athon with Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga Monday night, as four Major Leaguers appeared in the same game.
Reliever Paco Rodriguez, trying to return from an elbow spur, started the game and pitched one inning and allowed one hit. He will need several more appearances before rejoining the Dodgers.
Scott Van Slyke, healing from a strained rib muscle in his back, went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and he played first base after playing left field and designated hitter in two earlier games. He's likely to rejoin the Dodgers this week.
Joel Peralta, returning from a pinched neck nerve, pitched a scoreless eighth inning and was planning to pitch again on Tuesday as he nears a promotion.
Reliever Brandon League, returning from a right shoulder impingement, allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth inning with a strikeout.
