Ellis could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Thursday, according to Dodgers manager Don Mattingly. Uribe said he thinks he could be playing in minor league games “in a couple days.”
Ellis tested his ankle by making throws to second base before Monday’s game, while Uribe ran short sprints in the outfield grass.
“It’s a lot better now,” Uribe said. “I didn’t feel it at all today.”
Uribe has missed the past 18 games since straining his right hamstring.
