Russell Martin: Former Dodger, Future Dodger?

It’s now the offseason, so it’s time to talk about potential roster upgrades. The Dodgers have huge holes in the bullpen, some minor ones in the starting rotation, and of course, the left side of the infield. However, the biggest hole in last year’s lineup was catcher. It’s safe to say that A.J. Ellis had a down year in 2014. Ellis hit .191/.323/.254, only being saved from...

Here’s How A.J. Ellis Got Injured

When we learned yesterday that A.J. Ellis had injured his left knee, requiring surgery today, the question was inevitably: How? Ellis played a full game on Saturday, and taking a seat on Sunday didn’t seem out of the ordinary, since he’d played every inning of the season to that point.
