Mattingly updates on injured Dodgers

Mattingly updates on injured Dodgers
SAN DIEGO -- Here is Dodgers manager Don Mattingly's rundown of his injured players:

• Matt Guerrier (elbow tendinitis) -- "He came out of yesterday's bullpen OK today."

(Guerrier said he felt some discomfort, which was expected the first time throwing breaking balls.)

• Jerry Hairston (strained left hamstring) -- "He's doing more and more. He's on that path to get better. Taking ground balls today. He's been hitting."

• Juan Rivera (torn left hamstring) -- "Also on the same path, getting better but it's going to be some time. He's progressing well, he's on a best-case scenario."

• Matt Kemp (strained left hamstring) - "He resumed throwing today, but he's not hitting yet."

(Kemp said he plans to hit off a tee Friday).

• Juan Uribe (arthritic left wrist) -- "We're still letting it calm down and he'll see a specialist Saturday. He had the MRI and got some medication and we'll see if he gets some improvement. There are two spots. On the side it's arthritis from the past, but the spot they're worried about is on top of the wrist."
