"Right now, we're still waiting for Ely to sort of re-emerge, because I think we've seen enough of him to like what we saw," Torre said. "He needed to go down and sort of get himself back in order."
Ely was scheduled to start on Friday, but was scratched after a ball hit him on the leg during batting practice. Ely has made one start since he was demoted -- a seven-inning, three-run performance.
"That's pretty tough to hit him because he hardly stands still," Torre said of Ely, who's fidgety.
