Andruw Jones is swinging the bat well while testing his surgically repaired right knee at Class AAA Las Vegas and is feeling so good that he could come off the disabled list before the All-Star break and be activated as soon as Friday in San Francisco.
Jones had been tentatively scheduled to play 12 rehab games and return July 18, but is now looking to beat that date by a bunch after playing in the finale of tomorrow's four-game homestand in Las Vegas.
The Dodgers have a shortage of outfielders after Juan Pierre went down with knee injury himself earlier this week, so they might not mind.
"We haven't dismissed it," Manager Joe Torre said. "He feels he's ready to go. His stats are good."
