Bullety Lunchtime Stuff
- The Dodgers have confirmed that Scott Elbert will get the callup to replace the injured Blake Hawksworth. Hawksworth had a strained groin muscle in last night's game.
Update: Dylan Hernandez claims the return on the Elbert callup is not Hawksworth but Hong-Chih Kuo. Ken Gurnick says the team is staying mum about why Kuo is going down. The Dodgers need league approval to tell us why Kuo is going down? WTF?
Update 2: His problem is related to the "yips" he had two years ago and is psychological in nature, Dylan Hernandez writes.
- Bill Shaikin tweets that Frank McCourt has left the owners' meetings and is not talking to the press.
- Steve Dilbeck: "Frank McCourt not only has a plan, he has dozens of them. All with one thing in common: desperation."
- Willy Aybar wasn't signed in the offseason because he was in prison for beating his wife so badly that she had to go to the ICU.
- Update: Bill Shaikin tweets that ex-Angel Kevin Frandsen has tested positive for ritalin. Really, MLB? A 50-game suspension for ritalin?
- Update 2: The Angels have disabled Francisco Rodriguez with shoulder inflammation; Kevin Jepsen got the callup.
