SEATTLE -- Juan Uribe's arthritic left wrist appears healed and Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he expects the third baseman to rejoin the club Monday or Tuesday at the latest.
Mattingly said he's ready to insert Uribe back into the starting lineup, unless the player feels he needs an extra day off. Uribe's return will dislodge Elian Herrera from the hot corner for most games and require optioning back to the Minor Leagues either Alex Castellanos or Ivan De Jesus Jr., most likely Castellanos.
Uribe went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts and a sacrifice fly in the third and final game of his rehab assignment Sunday for Class A Rancho Cucamonga.
