Dodgers | Mark Ellis strains right quad Friday

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Mark Ellis (quadriceps) suffered a strained right quadriceps against the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, April 26, while running to first base in the bottom of the fifth inning. He was replaced on defense by INF Nick Punto in the sixth inning. Ellis is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Saturday, April 27, and could be headed for the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Punto figures to see the bulk of the playing time at second base if Ellis is sidelined for an extended period of time. INFs Jerry Hairston Jr. and Skip Schumaker are also capable of playing second. However, none of these players are worthy of consideration except in deep NL-only and mixed leagues.
