Injury updates on Silverio, Hairston.

A pair of injury updates that won’t make tomorrow’s editions:

1. An MRI on Jerry Hairston Jr.’s left hamstring revealed a strain, manager Don Mattingly said, which was expected. The Dodgers don’t play tomorrow, so no decision will be made as to whether or not Hairston will go on the disabled list. Hairston hasn’t played since Sunday.

2. Outfield prospect Alfredo Silverio underwent UCL Reconstruction (Tommy John surgery) Wednesday morning, a team spokesperson said in an e-mail. Dr. Neal ElAttrache performed the surgery at Kerlan Jobe in Los Angeles. Silverio will return to the Dodgers’ rehab facility at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz. and start his rehab tomorrow. According to the team spokesperson, Silverio isn’t experiencing any symptoms from the concussion he suffered in a car accident in January.
