It appears that last night's groin injury to Blake Hawksworth will be the latest in a long line of Dodgers on the disabled list this season. Though nothing has yet been announced by the club, Scott Elbert will join the Dodgers in Pittsburgh tonight. The obvious move seems to be Hawksworth to the disabled list, pending an MRI this morning.

Elbert nearly made the club out of spring training, but fell victim to having options while Lance Cormier didn't. If you are keeping score at home, Cormier -- who the Dodgers won't pitch unless the game is completely out of reach one way or another -- has been kept over both Elbert and Kenley Jansen at times this season. Elbert has a 5.02 ERA in 13 games with Triple A this season, with nine walks and 16 strikeouts in 14 2/3 innings. Elbert last pitched Monday night, his only appearance in the last four days.

Hawksworth would be the 11th Dodger to be placed on the disabled list this season.
