The revolving door that is the Dodgers' disabled list spun again Sunday, bringing Rafael Furcal back on the roster while sending Casey Blake off -- and giving rookie Dee Gordon a reprieve from a return to the minor leagues. Manager Don Mattingly said the decision to put Blake on the DL came after Saturday's 7-1 loss to the Angels. That opened up room for Furcal to return from his left oblique strain but created, at least temporarily, a logjam at shortstop, since Mattingly has ruled out moving Furcal to second. "He told me he would do it," Mattingly said, "but his words said one thing and his face said another, that he wasn't real comfortable with it." Mattingly said he doesn't want Gordon on the roster if he's not playing, but also indicated he's not ready to give Gordon playing time at Furcal's expense.
