The Dodgers are beginning to get healthier.

According to the team’s official Twitter feed, second baseman Juan Uribe will kick off a minor league rehab assignment on Thursday with the Single-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes.

Uribe is expected to play two or three games at the Single-A level before possibly returning to the major leagues as early as Sunday afternoon.

Uribe, 32, was batting .220/.293/.333 with three home runs and 20 RBI in 157 plate appearances before landing on the disabled list in late May with a strained left hip flexor. He signed a three-year free agent contract with the Dodgers in November that will pay him $5 million this season, $8 million next season, and $7 million in 2013. He’ll also get another $1 million in deferred money in 2014.

The Red Sox have re-signed first baseman Mitch Moreland to a two-year contract, the club announced on Monday. According to Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston, the total value of the deal is $13 million and Moreland can earn more through performance incentives.

Moreland, 32, hit .246/.326/.443 with 22 home runs and 79 RBI in 576 plate appearances with the Red Sox in 2017. With Moreland back in the fold, the Red Sox are out of the running for free agent Eric Hosmer.

While Moreland doesn’t have the best bat among first basemen, he plays good defense. His return also means the Red Sox can safely stow Hanley Ramirez back in the DH role.
