Blake Hawksworth has come down with a case of bone spuritis, and will have surgery Wednesday to clean up said spur in his right elbow as well as scar tissue.

Dr. Neal ElAttrache will perform the surgery, with an estimated recovery time of four to six weeks – in other words, ready to go before the end of February.

Hawksworth – whose 2011 season-in-review can be found here – is an incumbent in the Dodger bullpen and should remain so, presuming the surgery only makes him stronger.
