Being hit by a pitch is part of the game, but it doesn't always result in an injury. When being hit by a pitch does result in an injury, it can be devastating to a team and a player. Just ask Curtis Granderson. However, there is nothing more frightening than a pitch that rides up and in and hits a player in the head. That's what happened to Elian Herrera of the...
I’ll be the first to give Elian Herrera a hearty congrats on a nice start to his career and for playing his role perfectly in relief of Mark Ellis, but let’s also make no mistake about the future. With some speculating that he could be a regular down the road, I just wanted to remind
OAKLAND The improbable success of Elian Herrera shows no signs of ebbing, much to the Dodgers' delight.
It has been a month since the 27-year-old utilityman, who spent nearly a decade in the Dodgers' farm system, was called up to the big leagues and he has seemingly been everywhere in helping the Dodgers stay in first place.
Herrera was batting .305 entering Tuesday'...
When Elian Herrera was recalled to the Dodgers more than a week ago, I’m sure almost no one, besides maybe Christopher Jackson of the Albuquerque Examiner, knew who he was. Now, after eight games, he’s making his mark on an injury-riddled team and he might not be the one taking the first flight back to
A week ago, Elian Herrera was a 27-year old career minor leaguer, one who had never even been invited to a major league spring training camp. Now, Herrera is potentially a key member of the Dodgers' lineup.
Herrera was promoted to the Dodgers on May 14 when third baseman Juan Uribe was placed on the disabled list with a left wrist injury. Now the Dodgers will be without starting...

Wait, who? Oh, Elian Herrera (I'll give you a few minutes to look him up).
Tony Jackson of ESPN LA tweeted the news tonight:
"I'm told Elian Herrera on his way up. Not sure what it means other than that Gordon probably will move out of leadoff spot"
