Aug 28 LHP Scott Elbert, the Dodgers' first-round draft pick in 2004, will have his contract purchased from Class AA Jacksonville on Friday. The call-up will be the first of Elbert's professional career, and it comes without his ever having spent a day in Class AAA. Elbert missed most of last season with a shoulder injury, but he posted a 2.40 ERA at Jacksonville this season, allowing just 22 hits in 41 1/3 innings.
elbert worth a shot in standard leagues? kershaw was looking really good for a while there and hit a rough patch. im sure if it was june or july the dodgers would let him work through his troubles.
