Scott Elbert to receive first big-league callup tomorrow

The Dodgers are expected to purchase the contract of the left-hander and former first-round draft pick from Double-A Jacksonville. Corresponding move will be announced at that time. Once one of the organization’s top pitching prospects, Elbert missed most of last season with a shoulder injury that effectively turned him into a reliever, at least for now. At Jacksonville this season, he has made one start and 24 relief appearances and gone 4-1 with a 2.40 ERA. He has allowed just 22 hits in 41 1/3 innings, struck out 46 and walked 20.

    Kershaw has been optioned to Vegas to make room for Elbert.

    Yes, but only in the most technical sense. Kershaw will be back in time to make his next scheduled start on Tuesday night against the Pods.
