LOS ANGELES — It’s pups at the park night at Dodger Stadium, and Dave Roberts spent a few minutes talking with reporters, answering some non dog-related questions.

In case you’re curious, Roberts has three dogs. Unfortunately, they won’t be at the park tonight.

Reliever Caleb Ferguson, who was placed on the 10-day IL on April 28 with an oblique strain, is expected to make another rehab start next week.

“We expect him to make another appearance, not sure if it will be with the triple-A club or with Rancho on Tuesday,” Roberts said. “Right now, what we’re thinking is a one-plus inning situation. At that time, we’ll talk about activation.”

Ferguson pitched last night with the Quakes. He threw one scoreless inning, striking out two.

Other news

It looks as if we could see Tony Cingrani activated in the coming weeks. The 29-year-old began the season on the IL with left shoulder impingement. Last week, he was sent on a rehab assignment to Rancho. He threw one scoreless inning, striking out one.

A few days later he was optioned to Oklahoma City. He’s appeared in two games there, throwing two innings and striking out two. Roberts said the plan with him moving forward is to throw him multiple innings, as well as on back-to-back days. He said once Cingrani starts doing that, we could see him back with LA.

Yesterday, the Dodgers recalled catcher Rocky Gale from triple-A. With his brief time with the Dodgers this season, Gale hit .143. Roberts said that the reason they brought up Gale was that he provides another right-handed bat. With Pollock being on the IL, Roberts wants an additional right-handed bat he can use against left-handed pitching.
