The San Diego Padres have added a pair of relief pitchers via minor league contracts.
Jose Valverde and Scott Elbert will both join the Padres this spring as they seek to earn a spot in the teams bullpen.
Valverde, 36, began last season as the closer of the New York Mets but things quickly fell apart as he had a 5.66 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 23/10 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings...
When the Dodgers DFA’d Erisbel Arruebarrena last week, it actually made plenty of sense, even though plenty of people misunderstood it. All a DFA is for a player in his situation is the loss of a 40-man spot, not an exile from an organization. Unless a team claimed him (very unlikely) or wanted to trade for him (somewhat unlikely), all that was going to happen here would be that...
What Happened In 2014: Actually threw pitches! In major league games! And in the playoffs, improbably and unhappily.
I’m pretty sure that after a while, I simply forgot that Scott Elbert existed. And why not? Though he’d been with the organization since 2004, Elbert had only thrown 92.1 major league innings...
It wouldn’t be the Dodgers if they didn’t inexplicably drag out the playoff roster until the last possible second — last year, it took more than 30 minutes after the deadline for the roster to come out — but finally, we have it. Your 25-man roster to face the Cardinals in the NLDS is…

The Dodger's bullpen is starting to get some much needed left handed help, in the form of Scott Elbert, and Paco Rodriguez.Elbert, who was taken off the roster in late July, was activated before Friday's game versus San Francisco. To make room on the roster, pitcher Red Patterson was designated for assignment. Elbert, who is a former first round pick of the Dodgers, last pitched...
The Los Angeles Dodgers fell to the Colorado Rockies on Saturday by the score of 8-7. Despite the loss, the Dodgers are 50-40 and remain in first place in the National League West, a half game ahead of the San Francisco Giants. On the injury front, lefty reliever Scott Elbert, who has been trying to come back from Tommy John surgery, had his rehab halted. Fortunately, the latest...
Scott Elbert is on the mend and believes he can help the Dodgers after the All-Star break, but Joc Pederson will now be missing from these updates for at least another week and possibly more after separating his right shoulder. Meanwhile, Corey Seager continues to excel, and Jose De Leon showed his promise.
