SCOTT ELBERT NEWS

So This Is What Relievers Cost

The Dodgers could use a reliever. I know! I can’t believe it either. It’s certainly not something we’ve talked about like a dozen times recently, right? We’ve talked about who should go — hi, Chris Perez! And also Paul Maholm! And maybe, but less likely, Jamey Wright! — and whether it’ll be Paco Rodriguez or Scott Elbert or Jose Dominguez who comes to town, or whether...

It has Matt Kemp on the cover. It’s very cool. Also cool, or not, depending...

Dodgers avoid arbitration with Elbert, Butera, Baxter, but the real news is they’ll be with the team in 2014

The news today is that the Dodgers avoided arbitration with Scott Elbert, Drew Butera, and Mike Baxter, which isn’t really significant in itself. However, it’s noteworthy because it means they’ll all have contracts for 2014, which wasn’t necessarily a guarantee. With the deadline to tender contracts on Monday night, the Dodgers on Friday signed left-handed reliever Scott...

Injury Roll Call: Greinke’s comeback, A-Gon feeling pain, Elbert almost ready

Adrian Gonzalez and his neck strain still pose an issue for the Dodgers, as he can swing a bat without pain but can’t play the field or run without significant discomfort.

Chad Billingsley turned in an impressive minor-league outing on Friday in which he was able to throw his curve sans any finger or elbow issues. Manager Don Mattingly said Billingsley remains in his starting rotation, but it will just be a matter of when. The Dodgers don’t technically need a fifth starter until Apr. 13, their 11th game of the season. But Billingsley could be mixed...

As fans of the Dodgers, we’re always analyzing which pitchers have the best and worst pitches, but we normally base that on nothing but our own feelings at the moment, so I decided to take a more objective look at things.
