John Ely SP BOS Mar 08 '13
John Ely pitched three scoreless innings out of the Astros pen Friday against the Braves.
Ely's chances of landing a rotation spot have been boosted by Jordan Lyles' struggles and Erik Bedard's injury. However, he didn't really help himself until today; he entered with a 12.27 ERA through two spring appearances. Ely probably won't have any fantasy value if he does win the spot.

Astros acquired RHP John Ely form the Dodgers for LHP Rob Rasmussen.
Ely started 18 games for the Dodgers in 2010, but has appeared in just seven games in the majors the past two seasons. However, he had a 3.20 ERA in 168-plus innings at the Triple-A level last year and could be an option for the Astros' rotation at some point in 2013.

Dodgers optioned RHP John Ely to Triple-A Albuquerque.
We figured Ely would probably take Rubby De La Rosa's spot in the rotation, but that assignment will go to Nate Eovaldi, as Ely has been sent down before appearing in a game. He'll return to a 5.43 ERA at Triple-A.

Dodgers recalled RHP John Ely from Triple-A Albuquerque.
He'll take the place of the injured Rubby De La Rosa on the active roster and quite possibly in the starting rotation, as well. Ely, 25, has allowed six runs over 8 2/3 innings (6.23 ERA) with the Dodgers this season, but has spent most of the year in the minors. He doesn't come recommended in fantasy leagues.
