A.J. Ellis underwent knee surgery for a torn meniscus in his left knee. The information, as far as I can tell, was broken on Twitter by his wife.
Surgery went well Friday. Recovering and flying home Tuesday! #pregnantwith3babies #ipadteddybear twitter.com/Cindyluellis/s… — Cindy Ellis (@Cindyluellis) October 8, 2012
The necessity of this surgery could probably explain a few of his late-season struggles, and it makes you wonder why he was ridden so hard down the stretch. —– Matt Kemp, following shoulder surgery, is expected to be ready not just for Opening Day but for Spring Training, though he can’t swing a bat until January. He’ll begin rehabbing in about a week to a week and a half. Per the Dodgers official Twitter, the official diagnosis was: “a tear of the labrum that required repair and some minor debridement of the rotator cuff”. I still don’t understand why some people refused to believe he was playing hurt when it was painfully obvious to anybody watching, but I think this puts the nail in the coffin on that issue.

Left Side Of Infield Still A Concern For Dodgers

The Dodgers entered the offseason a little sooner than they expected, but they have already hit the ground running in terms of their offseason planning.
