Injury Updates

From Diamond:

Nomar Garciaparra (calf) is scheduled to resume hitting and throwing today. "He's walking without discomfort," trainer Stan Conte said.

Tony Abreu (abdomen) is scheduled to return to game action today and play four innings in an extended spring training game, and if all goes well, the rookie infielder will begin a rehabilitation assignment with Class AAA Las Vegas on Wednesday.

Jonathan Broxton was unavailable to pitch one day after returning from a right lat strain, as the Dodgers will play it conservative with their setup man.
