Shortstop Jose Offerman, Barry Lyons and infielder Greg Smith are the leading candidates to be sent to triple-A Albuquerque when the Dodgers make three roster moves:
--Mike Sharperson, reserve infielder, can rejoin the roster Thursday after recovering from a strained muscle in his left leg.
--Alfredo Griffin, shortstop, is scheduled to rejoin the roster Saturday after recovering from a lacerated toe nail and sore thumb. Many thought that his departure would clear the way for Offerman to stay. Offerman is batting only .226, but he has not made an error in 10 starts.
