Video: Casey Blake taking grounders. Wants to come back soon.

I shot this video yesterday before the Dodgers/Giants game. Casey Blake looked great taking grounders. He wants to come back this week.

Dodgers third baseman Casey Blake not only made progress the past week recovering from a bad back, he's now making progress talking the club into activating him for Thursday's game in Colorado.

That would be the first date he's eligible to come off the disabled list. Manager Don Mattingly originally said he hoped to bring back Blake for the weekend series in San Diego, but Blake said he feels "good enough to compete" and Mattingly said he's thinking about it.

"It sounds like he's ready," said Mattingly. "He feels there's nothing more to do. We'll see. We're thinking about it. The only thing I'm uncomfortable with is three days without playing. Off-days in the middle of the season, guys come back fine. Off early in the season, sometimes you don't."
