Scott Elbert (elbow) threw a perfect rehab inning at High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday night.

It was Elbert's second rehab appearance and he was sharp, striking out two of the three batters he faced. The left-hander is on his way back from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and will likely spend another couple weeks on the farm before the Dodgers consider him for a bullpen spot. He also had an appendectomy in January.

Scott Elbert (appendectomy, elbow) threw off a bullpen mound Saturday at Dodger Stadium.

Elbert is making slow but steady progress in his recovery from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and a January 28 appendectomy. He is on the 60-day disabled list and there is no timetable for his return.
Apr 12 - 6:31 PM

Scott Elbert (appendectomy, elbow) threw off a mound Friday.

It's the first time he's done so since undergoing an appendectomy on January 28. Elbert is on the 60-day disabled list, but that's because he's recovering from Tommy John surgery. He's expected to be out until midseason.
Feb 28 - 1:08 PM

Scott Elbert revealed Sunday that he had an appendectomy on January 28.

Elbert was placed on the 60-day DL Saturday as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery. The appendectomy will delay his rehab a bit, as he'll miss a couple weeks of throwing. Regardless, the Dodgers aren't counting on seeing him until the second half of the season.
Feb 9 - 10:00 AM

Dodgers placed LHP Scott Elbert on the 60-day disabled list.

The move was made to make room for newly signed Paul Maholm on the 40-man roster. Elbert is still recovering from Tommy John surgery last June, so the designation does nothing to his timetable. Last month Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said he believes Elbert could be ready to return as soon as July.
Feb 8 - 7:15 PM

Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti believes that Scott Elbert (elbow) could be ready to return by July.

Elbert underwent Tommy John surgery last June, so that would put him around a year out from the procedure. The 28-year-old left-hander compiled a 2.32 ERA in 90 relief appearances from 2011-2012, so he could still be a useful bullpen piece for Los Angeles.
Jan 8 - 1:16 PM

Dodgers agreed to terms with LHP Scott Elbert on a one-year contract.

Elbert had Tommy John surgery in June, so he would have been let go if he didn't agree to a cheap one-year deal before the tender deadline. The oft-injured southpaw might be back to help the Dodgers after the All-Star break, but it's not something they'll be counting on.

Scott Elbert will undergo Tommy John surgery on his left elbow.

Elbert had a pair of surgeries on his elbow over the offseason, but obviously neither of them wound up working. The Dodgers are giving him a 12-16 month timetable, so it's possible he could miss all of 2014, as well.

Scott Elbert (elbow) underwent an MRI on Tuesday.

Elbert was shut down from his rehab assignment earlier this week after his surgically-repaired left elbow did not respond well to pitching in back-to-back outings at Double-A Chattanooga. The 27-year-old left-hander had been on track to rejoin the Dodgers later this month.

Scott Elbert (elbow) has been shut down from his rehab assignment.

Elbert's twice-surgically-repaired left elbow didn't respond well to back-to-back outings with Double-A Chattanooga. The left-hander will be examined on Tuesday by Dr. Neal ElAttrache before the Dodgers decide what next to do with him.
Mon, Jun 3, 2013 07:42:00 PM

Dodgers transferred LHP Scott Elbert from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for Peter Moylan on the 40-man roster. Elbert had multiple surgeries on his elbow over the winter, but is making encouraging progress on his rehab assignment. He should be ready to join the Dodgers' bullpen within a few days.
Fri, May 31, 2013 05:11:00 PM

Scott Elbert (elbow) successfully pitched back-to-back days this weekend at Double-A Chattanooga.

Elbert faced just one batter in each appearance, but that was by design. The left-hander should be cleared to join the Dodgers' bullpen at some point this week.
Mon, May 27, 2013 08:33:00 AM

Scott Elbert (elbow) will pitch in minor league rehab games on Saturday and Sunday, where he'll likely face one hitter each game.

If all goes well with those two outings, he's expected to be activated from the disabled list and return to the Dodgers' bullpen next week. The 27-year-old lefty posted a 2.20 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 29/13 K/BB ratio in 32 2/3 innings for the Dodgers in 2012 and will give them another solid option in the middle innings.
Fri, May 24, 2013 07:51:00 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Scott Elbert's (elbow) velocity during his rehab assignment "still isn't where we want it to be."

"But he's going in the right direction," the skipper added. Elbert has made four rehab appearances, but it appears he's not terribly close to being activated from the disabled list.
