AJ ELLIS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Dodgers place A.J. Ellis on disabled list, recall Austin Barnes

The Los Angeles Dodgers catchers are getting banged up behind the dish. The Dodgers announced Monday that catcher A.J. Ellis has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with right knee inflammation. Ellis replaced starting catcher Yasmani Grandal in Sunday's game against the Washington Nationals after Grandal was rattled by a foul ball that hit the lower portion of his mask. In...

Ellis not necessarily Kershaw's personal catcher

It was widely believed prior to the season, and seemingly confirmed early in the season that A.J. Ellis would be Clayton Kershaw’s personal catcher. Mike Petriello of Dodgers Digest points out that there might be something else going on though. Petriello points out that over the past month, Ellis’ starts more closely correlate with whether the opposing pitcher on the mound is...

Cardinals 3, Dodgers 0: 3 hours of life you’re never getting back

Don Mattingly and A.J. Ellis (A.J. ELLIS!!!) got ejected from tonight’s game for arguing balls and strikes, which summarizes how erratic the zone was today. How much did it matter? Probably not much, as the Dodgers offense was limited to seven baserunners and got shutout by the trio of John Lackey, Kevin Siegrist, and Trevor Rosenthal. Mike Bolsinger came back to reality...

Don’t Worry About A.J. Ellis Just Yet

As Clayton Kershaw had another outing that wasn’t quite up to his usual standards yesterday — and while I know no one wants to hear “BABIP,” realize that like four of those Rockies hits traveled something like a combined 100 feet — a lot of the conversation seemed to turn to A.J. Ellis, who has had himself an absolutely brutal month as he attempts to prove that an awful...

Los Angeles Dodgers player review: A.J. Ellis

In my first installment of player reviews for the Los Angeles Dodgers, I will be looking at catcher A.J. Ellis. In his third full season as the starting catcher of the Dodgers, Ellis had his worst offensive season of his career. The 33 year old catcher showed a lot of wear and tear throughout the season, only appearing in 93 games behind the plate for the Dodgers. Looking at the...

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. Now, Ellis was involved in a close play at the plate on Saturday, getting called out (and...

A.J. Ellis to have surgery on left knee for meniscus tear, what now?

In a reveal that seemingly came out of nowhere, the Dodgers official Twitter broke news that A.J. Ellis would be undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee for a meniscus tear. He also underwent in operation for a meniscus tear in the same knee back in October of 2012. #Dodgers catcher AJ Ellis is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee for a meniscus tear...

Dodgers need A.J. Ellis and Tim Federowicz to improve pitch-framing

Pitch framing is all the rage these days, thanks to advanced statistics and guys like Ben Lindbergh (Baseball Prospectus) and Jeff Sullivan (FanGraphs).I remember being taught a little about the art whilst playing baseball growing up. It's not as easy as some may think, but it's something that should be learned and catchers should at least attempt to improve as their careers progress...
