Hatcher posts scoreless rehab inning

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers reliever Chris Hatcher struck out the side in a scoreless inning in his second Minor League rehab appearance for Class A Rancho Cucamonga on Monday night.

Hatcher, recovering from a strained oblique, rebounded from a shaky first appearance on Friday night, when he allowed two earned runs on three hits in one inning for Rancho Cucamonga.

The right-hander, acquired from Miami in the Dee Gordon trade last offseason for a bullpen setup role, hasn't pitched for the Dodgers since June 14. In 27 games, he has a 6.38 ERA and two saves.
