MILWAUKEE -- Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe has a sore left wrist and will miss Thursday's series finale against the Brewers at Miller Park.

The injury was disclosed before the game by Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly, who said he first heard about it during the Dodgers' 3-2 loss to Milwaukee on Wednesday night.

"They came to me like in the seventh inning and said Uribe can't swing -- he can play defense, though," Mattingly said, adding that Uribe said he might have injured the wrist sliding. "I was kind of caught by surprise."

Jerry Hairston Jr. replaced Uribe at third base for Thursday's game, after which the Dodgers were to fly to Houston for a series with the Astros.

Uribe, 33, was batting .235 through 10 games with one run batted in. Mattingly said Uribe likely would have the wrist examined by a doctor after the team arrived in Houston.

Uribe missed 75 games last season due to muscle strains in his left hip and season-ending hernia surgery Sept. 7.
