The Los Angeles Dodgers activated C A.J. Ellis (ankle) from the disabled list Friday, June 13, and optioned C Tim Federowicz to Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Ellis will return to starting catching duties immediately, and he should be returned to your lineups if you kept him on roster through his DL stint. Ellis could be widely available in your league, too, so consider adding him if your catcher option has been struggling.

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.

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez, OF Carl Crawford, 2B Dee Gordon and C Tim Federowicz are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 23.
Fantasy Tip: Remove all of these players from your starting lineups this evening.

Los Angeles Dodgers C Tim Federowicz said Tuesday, April 8, that he is prepared and expects to be the team's primary catcher while C A.J. Ellis (knee) is on the mend.
Fantasy Tip: Federowicz certainly has more offensive upside than Drew Butera, but this is just the word of the player and not the word of the skipper. However, Federowicz is worth scooping up in all NL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats which require two starting backstops.

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.
