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.

Let's count, because we do that a lot watching baseball. Numbers are everywhere. Whether you are a traditionalist or convinced WAR is the greatest number ever, this is for everyone. Count with me now: Kenley Jansen, Brian Wilson, J.P. Howell, Paco Rodriguez, Brandon League, Chris Perez, Chris Withrow and Jamey Wright. Backward or forward, that's eight, right? Eight relievers all understandably planning on being part of the Dodgers' 2014 bullpen. And that's not even counting bullpen candidates Javy Guerra, Scott Elbert, Onelki Garcia, Jose Dominguez and Yimi Garcia.

Now, you really didn't think the Dodgers could go an entire day without some bad injury news, did you? Sorry, their incredible roll continues. Prior to Wednesday's game the Dodgers announced that left-hander Scott Elbert will undergo Tommy John surgery. It's more tough news for the 27-year-old Elbert, the former No. 1 draft pick who seemed to have found his role with the Dodgers last year as a left-handed specialist (1-1, 2.20 earned-run average, 1.22 WHIP). Elbert had yet to pitch this season, trying to battle back from a pair of elbow surgeries . He was originally expected to return at the end of April, but his rehab stretched into late May. He seemed finally on schedule to return, but failed his final test when he pitched in back-to-back games and his new problem emerged.

Hanley Ramirez and the Dodgers are negotiating a contract extension, the shortstop confirmed during an interview in the Dominican Republic, where he and other members of the country's World Baseball Classic were honored. "I can't talk about years or money, but we're negotiating and there could be something this winter," Ramirez said in a report published Friday by ESPN Deportes. Ramirez is under contract for one season at $16 million. Ramirez reiterated his wish to remain with the Dodgers for the remainder of his career, saying they gambled by acquiring him from the Miami Marlins last year.

The Dodgers, who already reached a deal with outfielder Mike Baxter , agreed to terms with two other players eligible for salary arbitration: left-handed reliever Scott Elbert and catcher Drew Butera. The deadline to tender contracts to arbitration-eligible players is Monday. The Dodgers now have four players who are still eligible for arbitration: ace Clayton Kershaw, closer Kenley Jansen, catcher A.J. Ellis and right-handed reliever Ronald Belisario. The deals agreed to with Baxter, Elbert and Butera are all non-guaranteed, according to a person familiar with the situation who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Those expanded rosters that become available Sept. 1 can't come soon enough for the Dodgers. Their bullpen suffered a blow Wednesday when they announced left-hander Scott Elbert was returning to the 15-day disabled list with the sore elbow that had sent him there a month ago. “This is the same thing that's been going on,” Manager Don Mattingly said. Elbert had appeared in four games since returning from his first stint on the DL and had not allowed a run. In those 3 1/3 innings, he had allowed only two hits and had not walked a batter.

The Great Mystery of 2012, or at least the minor one of week, was solved when the Dodgers finally announced who would start in San Francisco on Friday. They placed left-hander Scott Elbert on the disabled list with a sore elbow and recalled right-hander Stephen Fife from triple-A Albuquerque to start in the opener against the Giants at AT&T Park. This will mark Fife's second career start. His first came against Roy Halladay and the Phillies on July 17.  This time he draws Matt Cain.

Now that Scott Elbert has stayed with the Dodgers for a while, the relief pitcher appears to have found his stride. Entering Tuesday's game, the left-hander had pitched scoreless relief in 16 of his previous 17 appearances dating to July 6, during which he posted an 0.56 earned-run average and held opposing hitters to a .193 batting average. Overall, Elbert is 0-1 with two saves and a 2.67 ERA this season. "It's been a breakthrough," Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said.

Outfielder Mike Baxter has avoided salary arbitration and agreed to a one-year contract with the Dodgers, according to a person familiar with the situation who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The deal is worth $700,000, the source said. Baxter, 28, was claimed off waivers last month from the New York Mets. In 155 plate appearances this year, he batted .189 with no home runs and four runs batted in. Baxter will provide the Dodgers with depth in their outfield, which includes Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford.

The good: Left-handed specialist was everything the Dodgers had hoped, and probably a little more. His ERA and WHIP were the best of his career. Held left-handed hitters to a .164 batting average, but right-handed hitters hit only .222. Fit in great in the clubhouse. The bad: Not much to complain about.

The Dodgers took Jacksonville right-hander Chris Anderson with their first pick Thursday in Major League Baseball's annual amateur draft, which might leave fans wondering how the team's most recent top picks are faring. So here you go: As they did today, last season the Dodgers had the 18th overall pick, and used it to select Corey Seager, a North Carolina high school shortstop. Seager is playing for the club's Class-A affiliate at Great Lakes in the Midwest League, and he is batting .256.

OK, everybody off the bandwagon. Cancel that MVP campaign. Delay those hall ballots. Much to the surprise of absolutely everyone in the baseball world, Yasiel Puig will not fly to the rescue every night. He will not pull a dramatic moment out of nowhere. He will not -- and this is actually true -- get a hit every game. Ah, man. He's like human and everything. He had some wondering after his first two electric games, going 5 for 8 with two home runs and five RBIs. Even Manager Don Mattingly, in a light moment before Wednesday's game, wasn't ready to put limitations on Puig when it was mentioned it might just be a tad difficult for him to maintain his .625 batting average.

Less than a week after expressing doubt whether he would ever pitch again, Josh Beckett said Wednesday that he was confident he would one day stand on a major league mound again. But Beckett acknowledged he didn't know if that day would come this season or next, as he said he could undergo a season-ending operation if rehabilitation doesn't rid him of numbness in his pitching hand. Beckett visited specialists in the Dallas area for the last three days, after which he and the Dodgers decided he wouldn't throw for the next four weeks as he underwent a rigorous rehabilitation program.

PHOENIX -- Right-hander Zack Greinke, scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday with what the Dodgers say was illness, will wait until his turn in the rotation comes up again Monday before making his third appearance of the spring. Greinke has pitched five innings this spring, allowing two runs and six hits. He missed his last bullpen session Sunday because of forearm tightness but worked out Thursday. Scott Elbert, who had surgery on his left elbow last season, threw for the first time Wednesday and reported no problems.

All the excitement was over the major league debut of 6-foot-3, 245-pound Yasiel Puig, but the Dodgers had plenty of other news to discuss before Monday's game. • Outfielder Carl Crawford was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain . The move is retroactive to Sunday and gives the Dodgers two starting outfielders ( Matt Kemp is the other) on the DL with hamstring issues. “At first we thought he would only be out a few days, but after an MRI today it looks more like weeks,” Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said of Crawford, who becomes the 14th Dodger to go on the disabled list this season, and their 17th DL move overall.
