Silverio was ranked No. 15 by MLB.com on the Dodgers' Top 20 Prospects list.Now he's on a very slow track as he recovers from the injuries. "There isn't even a timeline right now," Mattingly said. "He's still having the concussion symptoms. Nowadays, nobody messes with that. It's definitely good to get him with our [medical] people, get him in our hands and start the [rehab] process. This way, we can keep an eye on him and monitor what he's doing.
"At least here he's a part of it. If he were home, it would be out of sight, out of mind. The fact that he's here, it's good for him, it's good for us. Hopefully, this is just that step backward before he steps forward again."
