Scott Elbert sent down

Not a huge surprise here, but the Dodgers today sent pitcher Scott Elbert down to minor league camp.

“He just needs to pitch more,” Joe Torre said. “But there’s a lot in there.”

    I agree with Torre that “He just needs to pitch more,” and that “…there’s a lot in there.”

    I expect he will be starting at Albuquerque, working both on his command and his secondary pitches. What worries me, is that he has to pitch in Albuquerque, a veritable hitters paradise, and not the easiest place to throw breaking pitches, given the thin air. He might be better served at AA in Chattanooga, working under normal atmospheric conditions.
