Dodgers' Uribe Placed on DL, Ryu Returns

Having Ryu back should give the Dodgers the frontline rotation they hoped for at the start of the season



    The Los Angeles Dodgers will be without one of their most productive hitters for a while, as the team placed Juan Uribe on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday.

    The third baseman doubled in the ninth inning Tuesday against the New York Mets but limped into second base, having re-injured his already tender right hamstring.

    He initially hurt it May 9 in a game against the San Francisco Giants. He was held out of the lineup until Friday against the Miami Marlins.

    Uribe has a .303 batting average with four home runs and 18 RBIs this season.

    The Dodgers have called up infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena from Double-A Chattanooga to take Uribe's place.

    The 24-year-old Arruebarrena will be making his Major League debut. In 25 games in Double-A, he hit .208 with four doubles and six RBIs.

    LA got some positive news on the injury front.

    The team activated pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu from the disabled list Wednesday feeling confident he's recovered from inflammation in his throwing shoulder.

    The left-hander was placed on the DL after his April 27 start when he complained of shoulder tightness. The 27-year-old is 3-2 with a 3.00 ERA in seven starts.

    Reliever Chris Withrow was optioned Triple-A Albuquerque. In 21 1/3 innings, the righty posted 28 strikeouts and held opponents to a .143 batting average.
