Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring) won't be activated from the disabled list until next week.
The hope had been that he would be ready to return this weekend against the Phillies, but Gutierrez is only at about 80 percent with his running to this point. He'll return to a platoon role versus lefties when he's ready.
Devin Mesoraco (hip, shoulder) is set to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.
Mesoraco will have used the full 20-day allotment on his rehab assignment as he builds up his stamina in game action following two seasons sabotaged by hip and shoulder surgeries. He batted only .175/.283/.275 with one home run over 46 plate appearances so far for Double-A Pensacola and will split playing time at catcher with Tucker Barnhart, so Mesoraco doesn't figure to make a big fantasy impact right away. However, he should get more and more starts if he holds up physically, and the talent has certainly been there in the past.
Ricky Nolasco will start on Thursday against the Athletics.
Nolasco will have gone eight days in between outings, as the Angels wanted him to work on his mechanics on the side. The veteran right-hander holds a 4.76 ERA and 17/3 K/BB ratio over his first 22 2/3 innings this season.
Dodgers recalled OF Brett Eibner from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Eibner was just sent down Sunday, but he's back to replace Joc Pederson (groin). He will see some playing time in center field.
Dodgers placed OF Joc Pederson on the 10-day disabled list with a right groin strain.
Pederson hurt himself during Sunday's game in Arizona while lunging for first base in an attempt to beat out a grounder. It's unclear at this point how long he's expected to be sidelined. Enrique Hernandez is in center field Monday and will see more starts there with Pederson out, but the Dodgers figure to mix and match with a few players.
Denard Span (shoulder) is expected to be out of action for 2-4 more days.
Span injured his right shoulder on Saturday when he crashed into the outfield wall, and he's sat out the next two contests. It sounds like he'll need a few more additional days of rest, but the Giants are optimistic he can avoid a stint on the disabled list. Drew Stubbs is in center field Monday.
Shelby Miller (elbow) will receive a second opinion on his ailing right elbow from Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
Miller went on the disabled list Monday with what the Diamondbacks are calling right elbow inflammation for now. However, manager Torey Lovullo wouldn't comment when asked if there was anything wrong with Miller's ligament, which could be an ominous sign. We should know more later this week. Archie Bradley is an option to take Miller's spot in the rotation, although the D'Backs are considering keeping him in the bullpen given his success there.
J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports that Julio Urias will be recalled to start Thursday against the Giants.
The signs had been pointing to this week being when Urias makes his season debut for the Dodgers. Slotting him in on Thursday will allow the club to give the struggling Kenta Maeda a little extra rest. Urias posted a 1.93 ERA and 15/9 K/BB ratio over 14 innings in his three starts for Triple-A Oklahoma City. The left-hander faces workload limits and can have control issues, but the upside here is obviously sky-high.
