Dodgers Injury Notes: Matt Guerrier Continues Rehab, Justin Sellers To Have Back Surgery

The Los Angeles Dodgers got some good news and some bad news on the injury front on Tuesday, as relief pitcher Matt Guerrier continued his rehab assignment while infielder Justin Sellers found out his season is over.

Guerrier, who has been sidelined since April 19 with right elbow inflammation, pitched a scoreless inning in his third rehab game for Class A Rancho Cucamonga on Tuesday night. Guerrier struck out one, and also induced a ground out and a fly out. Guerrier said on Monday that he has not experienced any elbow pain during his minor league assignment, and that he expects to be activated from the 60-day disabled list once rosters expand in September.

The news isn't nearly as good for Sellers, who has been out since May 23 with a bulging disc in his lower back. Sellers will undergo surgery on his lower back on Thursday in Los Angeles, to be performed by Dr. Robert Watkins. Sellers made his first opening day roster this season and hit .205/.286/.386 in 19 games.
