PEORIA, Ariz. -- Jaime Jarrin pioneered the radio broadcasting of major league baseball in Spanish with the Dodgers more than 50 years ago -- and he earned a place in the Hall of Fame as a result. On Thursday his son Jorge will make his radio play-by-play debut -- in English -- when the Dodgers meet the Texas Rangers at Camelback Ranch. Following a famous dad in the same profession has tripped up many a baseball player -- as well as a few broadcasters. But Jarrin said he's ready to take his lumps as he learns the ropes.

PHOENIX -- Left-hander Scott Elbert threw for the first time in spring training Wednesday, beginning a comeback from two surgeries in the past six months. "He'll get back to tossing a few balls," Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said. Elbert, 27, was hoping to be ready to rejoin the team by April. He last pitched Aug. 26, retiring one batter against the Florida Marlins. Elbert then underwent arthroscopic surgery on his elbow in September. But team doctor Neal ElAttrache found a new area of cartilage damage during a second 40-minute arthroscopic procedure in January, necessitating more repair work.

And now to ruin a great story - the bane of a blogger. Carl Crawford, the Dodgers' new left fielder, was a three-sport star at Jefferson Davis High in Houston. So much so, the story goes, that UCLA offered him a basketball scholarship to play point guard. That's a heck of a tale, though it does have one problem - it's not true. The 6-foot-2 Crawford said it never happened. “No, I signed with Nebraska to go play football and baseball,” he said Friday at his introductory news conference . “UCLA didn't offer me any scholarship.” Even though it says so, right there in Wikipedia.

PHOENIX -- Reliever Shawn Tolleson, who came out of the Dodgers' Cactus League game Tuesday in Peoria, Ariz., with a sore left knee, pronounced himself healed Wednesday. Tolleson said he felt something pop in his left knee after delivering a 1-0 pitch to the San Diego Padres' Gregorio Petit, and the Dodgers removed him from the game as a precaution. But examinations Tuesday night and Wednesday morning found no continuing soreness or swelling. Tolleson said he would play catch Wednesday but not participate in fielding drills or any running for at least a day. His status is officially listed as day to day. Tolleson pitched in 40 games for the Dodgers last year, going 3-1 with a 4.30 earned-run average.

PHOENIX--Zack Greinke's strange spring got a little stranger Wednesday when he was scratched from his scheduled start against Mexico's World Baseball Classic team. Stephen Fife will start in Greinke's place. Greinke, who skipped a bullpen session Sunday because of tightness in his right foreman, complained Wednesday of flu-like symptoms. He is at least the fourth Dodger to miss a game with illness. Luis Cruz missed two days last week after spending time at an urgent care facility with an apparent case of food poisoning.

Well, that's the whole gang. Almost, anyway. Having already announced that the big boys, Vin Scully and Jaime Jarrin, would return next season, the Dodgers made it a group effort Saturday. They said that also returning to the broadcast booth next season will be Charley Steiner, Rick Monday, Eric Collins, Steve Lyons, Fernando Valenzuela and Pepe Yniguez. That's everyone but Spanish-language TV broadcasters Jorge Jarrin and Manny Mota, who are expected to be announced later.

PHOENIX -- Left fielder Carl Crawford is scheduled to start swinging a bat Thursday after being shut down for a week with soreness in his left foreman. Crawford, who underwent reconstructive elbow surgery days before being traded from the Boston Red Sox to the Dodgers last August, had been taking batting practice and throwing before being diagnosed with minor nerve irritation in his forearm. This is not uncommon during the rehab process following Tommy John surgery, team doctor Neal ElAttrache said after examining Crawford in Los Angeles last week.

There are plenty of reasons to enjoy baseball's spring training - new beginnings, fresh cut grass, a Tim Lincecum haircut. But there also days like Tuesday's, when the Dodgers not only go rather meekly to the San Diego Padres, 7-3, but the team stars struggle. For the Dodgers' homegrown superstars, Clayton Kershaw and Matt Kemp, it was a game to forget, which is highly advisable. Kershaw went three-plus innings, allowing four runs on seven hits. In three spring starts, he now has a 9.00 ERA. Kemp started in the field for the first time after two DH appearances.
