(CBS/Dodgers) — The Los Angeles Dodgersplaced infielder Juan Uribe on the 15-day disabled list with a left wrist injury and purchased the contract of Elian Herrera from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Uribe was hitting .250 with a homer and 10 RBI in 25 games, all at third base.

The switch-hitting Herrera was on fire for the first-place Isotopes, batting .358 (43-for-120) with two homers, nine doubles, 14 RBI and nine stolen bases in 28 games.

The native of the Dominican Republic had an on-base percentage of .381 and saw time at shortstop, third base, second base, center and left field. The 27-year-old was hitting .404 against left-handers and was batting at a .409 clip (18-for-44) during the month of May.

Herrera, who will wear No. 37, was originally signed by the Dodgers as a non-drafted free agent on May 14, 2003. He is expected to arrive prior to the start of the game on Monday.

To make room for Herrera on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers designated outfielder Trent Oeltjen for assignment.
