Dodgers Promote INF Russ Mitchell, Disable Casey Blake
Per a tweet from Ken Rosenthal; to replace Casey Blake on the 25-man roster as he goes to the 15-day DL. Mitchell's minor league stats aren't that encouraging; the 26-year-old is hitting .214/.281/.393 in the hitter-friendly confines at Albuquerque, but he hit .315/.363/.535 in 2010. Mitchell didn't make the Baseball America top 10 list this year, but I don't think that, even though Dee Gordon is hitting .346/.370/.716, it's a small sample sized conclusion (81 PA) and I wouldn't want to wreck him by starting his clock when he's not ready. Mitchell, on the other hand, is likely expendable.
