MIAMI -- Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Casey Blake was hospitalized Tuesday night with "some type of infection" in his left elbow, manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday.

Blake, who could miss four weeks, missed the first six games of the season with an inflamed thoracic disk. But he's hit .321 in 14 games since returning.

He sat out Monday's game with a tight groin, and the elbow started to swell that night.
