Description: Dodgers' newly-acquired pitcher Joe Wieland could find himself with a spot in the starting rotation, at least at the start of the season.
Insight: Wieland could take Hyun-Jin Ryu's spot (shoulder) in the rotation. He's only pitched 39 inning in the majors over the past three seasons due to TJ surgery, but the right-hander had a 3.29 ERA and a terrific 408/80 K/BB in 438 minor league innings. He's got a 1.00 ERA in nine innings this spring.

Description: Padres pitcher Joe Wieland will have a procedure to fix irritation in his elbow joint and will be out until the All-Star break, according to Corey Brock of mlb.com.
Insight: An MRI last week ruled out a second Tommy John surgery for Wieland. The right-hander had a 3.29 ERA and a terrific 408/80 K/BB in 438 minor league innings but threw just 27 2/3 innings in the majors before needing his first Tommy John operation in July 2012.

Description: The MRI on Padres right-handed pitcher Joe Wieland's elbow revealed no damage to his UCL, according to Jeff Sanders of the Union-Tribune. He'll be reevaluated in 7-10 days.
