Dodgers | A.J. Ellis available

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:59:24 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C A.J. Ellis (hand) is available off the bench and was able to throw Thursday, April 23, after X-rays on his hand came back negative.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has lost considerable playing time to Yasmani Grandal to open the 2015 season, and he's not of much use to FantasyScore gamers. Ellis really is only worth owning in deep NL-only leagues at this point.

Dodgers | A.J. Ellis could platoon behind the plate

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 13:55:40 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers C A.J. Ellis could platoon behind the plate with C Yasmani Grandal based on the opposing starting pitcher, according to general manager Andrew Friedman.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis is the elder statesman, and he lacks the offensive punch Grandal boasts. Additionally, it is likely Grandal earns the majority of starts at some point during the season. At best, Ellis is a low-end option in two-catcher formats.

Dodgers | Three players sitting Saturday

Sat, 02 Aug 2014 17:15:48 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (knee), OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) and C A.J. Ellis (knee) will not be in the lineup Saturday, Aug. 2, but manager Don Mattingly said all three players could pinch hit in an emergency situation. 2B Justin Turner will make his first start of the year at first base in place of Gonzalez, 1B Scott Van Slyke will replace Puig in the outfield, and C Drew Butera will start for Ellis.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez, Puig and Ellis should all be considered day-to-day at this point, but make sure to remove all three from daily lineups.
