After going down on the Disable List with elbow inflammation, Scott Elbert is back. Hopefully, he can provide some solid innings to an underachieving bullpen. Per a Dodgers press release:
The Los Angeles Dodgers today reinstated left-handed reliever Scott Elbert from the disabled list and optioned infielder/outfielder Elian Herrera to Triple-A Albuquerque. Herrera appeared in just two games during his six-day recall, going 1-for-3 at the plate.Below, via Baseball Reference, are his game logs from this season. As you can see he had been effective.
Elbert had been on the disabled list since July 26 with left elbow inflammation and made three rehab appearances with Double-A Chattanooga, striking out all six batters he faced in 2.0 innings. Prior to going on the DL, Elbert had made nine consecutive scoreless appearances (8.0 IP) and overall was 1-1 with a 2.45 ERA in 39 games.
