Another Case Of Inflamed ERA Sends Haeger To Albuquerque, John Ely Replaces Him
John Ely got the callup to replace him, and though he wasn't in AAA for the mandatory 10 days, the callup is ostensibly to replace an injured player, and so the Dodgers organization comes up with something nobody really believes.
But the Dodgers must have had an idea he wouldn't be down long, because Ely said he never even joined Albuquerque. Instead, he reported to Class A Inland Empire, where he threw a bullpen session Saturday. He worked out in Los Angeles on Sunday and flew to Phoenix, but not with the club.Related: Vicente Padilla is out until June.
