There were encouraging reports on Justin Turner and Juan Uribe a day after each were injured, minutes apart, in Saturday’s 6-0 Dodger loss, but Alex Guerrero will make his first Major League start.

Uribe is available off the bench today if needed (though unlikely to be used), while Turner is expected back for the upcoming series against the Mariners.

With Guerrero, Yasiel Puig and Yasmani Grandal in the lineup, it is believed to be the first time the Dodgers will have started three Cuban-born players.

Saturday marked the 28th time the Dodgers have been two-hit since 2000.

    I’ll wait a few days for Turner and Guerrero reports. These things have a way of getting worse by the day. But I hope I’m wrong.
