The Dodgers will be without pitcher Kevin Brown and outfielder Gary Sheffield indefinitely after the two key players were among four injured Saturday in the club's improbable 6-5, 10-inning victory over the New York Mets at Shea Stadium. Brown suffered a fractured pinkie finger on his throwing hand after being hit by a pitch by New York starter Pat Mahomes while trying to bunt in the fifth. The break begins at Brown's knuckle and extends into the digit's shaft, team trainer Stan Johnston said.

Three weeks of spring training remain, but nearly every question has already been answered for the Dodgers. They believe that Wilton Guerrero can be their everyday second baseman, that Brett Butler can be their everyday center fielder and that Chan Ho Park can be their fifth starting pitcher. They also believe that their bullpen could be the strongest in franchise history. An impressive Darren Dreifort is expected to be Todd Worrell's setup man for a season before inheriting the closer's role.

Hiram Bocachica suffered a sprained right ankle Wednesday during a workout at Dodger Stadium and might be put on the disabled list. Manager Jim Tracy said the injury occurred when the rookie infielder fielded a ball near second base and turned awkwardly on the ankle. Trainer Matt Wilson and infielder Jeff Reboulet helped Bocachica off the field, and team medical personnel wrapped his ankle. X-rays were negative. "It's the size of a tennis ball right now," Tracy said.

Closer Eric Gagne, who had experienced stiffness in the shoulder of his throwing arm Tuesday, was diagnosed with tendinitis and bursitis Wednesday. The right-hander, winner of the National League Cy Young Award in 2003, is not expected to be out more than a few days. After an MRI exam Wednesday revealed no structural damage, Gagne was given a cortisone injection. "He could be out three to four days," said trainer Stan Johnston, who also said Gagne could be available as early as today.

Odalis Perez, who said he hurt himself playing catch before getting roughed up by the Atlanta Braves in Wednesday night's start, was diagnosed Thursday by trainer Stan Johnston with a "very mild strain of his right oblique," an abdominal muscle, said Manager Jim Tracy.

It's a big word for a relatively minor injury -- chondromalacia. But it was serious enough to sideline Dodger outfielder J.D. Drew on Wednesday, and it could keep him out for several days. The condition in Drew's left knee was diagnosed after an MRI exam. According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, chondromalacia is a softening of the tissue in the kneecap.

After pitcher Derek Lowe was hit in the triceps by a line drive Sunday against the Arizona Diamondbacks, he didn't even consider canceling his flight to Boston to participate in the Red Sox World Series ring ceremony. The Dodgers suggested he skip it. Trainer Stan Johnston treated the injury and asked Lowe, "How seriously do you want to go back there?" Lowe replied, "Pretty bad." And away he went.
