The Dodgers are beginning to get healthier.
Uribe is expected to play two or three games at the Single-A level before possibly returning to the major leagues as early as Sunday afternoon.
Uribe, 32, was batting .220/.293/.333 with three home runs and 20 RBI in 157 plate appearances before landing on the disabled list in late May with a strained left hip flexor. He signed a three-year free agent contract with the Dodgers in November that will pay him $5 million this season, $8 million next season, and $7 million in 2013. He’ll also get another $1 million in deferred money in 2014.
