The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed C A.J. Ellis (ankle) on the 15-day disabled list because of a right ankle sprain. The team also recalled C Tim Federowicz from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Fantasy Tip: Federiwicz and Drew Butera likely will share catching duties while Ellis is out, but they should only be options in NL-only and two-catcher leagues.

The Los Angeles Dodgers optioned C Tim Federowicz to Triple-A Albuquerque Wednesday, April 30, and recalled C Miguel Olivo from Albuquerque in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Federowicz just wasn't cutting it offensively, hitting near .100. Olivo could form some sort of platoon with Drew Butera behind the dish with A.J. Ellis still out. If neither are receiving regular PT, they aren't worth your time, even in two-catcher leagues.

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed C A.J. Ellis (knee) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, April 8, and recalled C Tim Federowicz from Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Federowicz and Drew Butera will split catching duties with Ellis out for four to six weeks. Federowicz should be your first target in NL-only or two-catcher leagues, as he has more offensive upside than Butera.
