The Los Angeles Dodgers put infielder Juan Uribe on the 15-day disabled list with a left wrist injury, the team announced Monday.
The team also purchased the contract of Elian Herrera from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Uribe was hitting .250 with one home run and 10 RBIs in 25 games, all as a third baseman.
The switch-hitting Herrera was hitting .358 with two homers in 28 games for Albuquerque, and he was expected to join the Dodgers Monday night
To make room for Herrera on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers designated outfielder Trent Oeltjen for assignment.
