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.
