Reported By Stephen Rhodes

Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Nomar Garciaparra's wrist is steadily improving, yet according to the Associated Press, it is uncertain when he will return to the team's lineup. Garciaparra was hit on the right wrist by a pitch Friday during a game against the St. Louis Cardinals; The X-rays were negative, although his wrist is bruised and swollen.

Garciaparra on Tuesday hit in the batting cages with his wrist wrapped; as a result of this injury, Garciaparra has been scratched from the Dodgers' trip to China as exhibition games against the San Diego Padres were scheduled for Friday and Saturday in Beijing, China.
