LOS ANGELES (AP) – Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Casey Blake was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, although he is expected to be out up to six weeks after developing a staph infection in his left elbow.

Dodgers athletic trainer Stan Conte says Blake is expected to be released from the hospital Saturday, two days after having surgery to clean out the infection.

Blake woke up early Wednesday in Florida with a fever and was taken by Conte to the hospital. Conte says Blake had developed a 102-degree temperature and his elbow was badly swollen, signaling an infection.
