Dodgers Activate Casey Blake, Place Juan Uribe On Disabled List With Left Hip Strain

Before tonight's game with Arizona, the Dodgers made a roster move regarding an infielder...but not involving Rafael Furcal. At least not yet, anyway. Casey Blake was activated from the 15-day disabled list, and Juan Uribe was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left hip strain.

Blake has hit .243/.346/.386 in 44 games this season, and has been on the disabled list three different times. The latest trip was for a cervical strain, a literal pain in the neck that has sidelined him since July 3, and limited Blake for a few weeks prior to that. He played in two rehab games with Class A Rancho Cucamonga the last two nights.

Uribe has been a disappointment this year, to say the least. Signed to a three-year, $21 million contract this winter, Uribe has hit .204/.264/.293 with four home runs in 77 games. This is Uribe's second trip to the disabled list this year. Uribe is the third Dodger infielder to make two different trips to the DL this season.

Tonight's 7:10 p.m. PDT game will be televised by KCAL. For more news and information on the Dodgers, or tonight's game, be sure to read the SB Nation blog True Blue LA.
