Updating previous reports, ESPNLosAngeles.com's Tony Jackson reports Los Angeles Dodgers OF Brian Giles (knee) said he isn't getting the results from his surgically repaired right knee, but he'll give it a few more days. "Not as much as I would like at this point,'' Giles said. "Obviously, I'm going to give it a few more days, but I'm not where I want to be physically. We'll see if it gets better with more activity. Certain drills grab it, and certain movements grab it. Obviously, when you irritate it, anything you do is going to be painful.''
