The Dodgers' injury situation is getting more and more ridiculous by the hour. Juan Uribe, one of 10 Dodgers currently on the disabled list, is on a rehab assignment with the Class A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, and was hit on the left hand by a pitch in the first inning tonight. According to Quakes' broadcaster Mike Lindskog, Uribe was hit in the bottom of the first inning, then took the field at second base in the top of the second, but was removed from the game mid-inning.

General manager Ned Colletti told Tony Jackson of ESPN LA that Uribe was "grazed on the left hand" and that it didn't sound serious. Uribe is eligible to return from the disabled list as soon as Sunday, but the plan was for Uribe to join the Dodgers Monday in Philadelphia.

Blake Hawksworth pitched his second rehab game in three days, pitching a scoreless inning for the Quakes, including two strikeouts. The Dodgers have had 13 different players make 18 trips to the disabled list this season.
