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.
