LOS ANGELES The Los Angeles Dodgers today placed left-handed pitcher Scott Elbert on the 15-day disabled list with left elbow inflammation (retroactive to July 26) and recalled right-hander Stephen Fife from Triple-A Albuquerque to make tonights start at San Francisco. Elbert has tossed scoreless relief in nine consecutive appearances (8.0 IP) since June 25 and has a 2.45 ERA in 39 appearances this season. Fife will make his second Major League start tonight after allowing just one run on four hits in 6.0 innings in a no-decision on July 17 in his big league debut against Philadelphia. The 25-year-old made one start for Triple-A Albuquerque since being optioned and struck out a career-high 12 batters in 7.0 innings of one-run ball on Sunday against Iowa (Cubs).
