MARK ELLIS RUMORS & GOSSIP

St. Louis Cardinals make a series of minor league roster moves on Tuesday

That changed on Tuesday with the news that Mark Ellis was traveling to Milwaukee to join the big club. Let’s take a look at the moves that were made on Tuesday: St. Louis Cardinals activate Mark Ellis from the disabled list Ellis had...

The St. Louis Cardinals sign Mark Ellis; Are they done?

The St. Louis Cardinals continued their busy offseason by signing veteran second baseman Mark Ellis.  Ellis most recently played with the Dodgers, and he will turn 37 next season, but the Cardinals just want him as insurance at second for young Kolten Wong, who they plan to play regularly in 2014.  Ellis has played 11 seasons in the majors and is seen as a steady player and a good...

St. Louis Cardinals make excellent decision to sign Mark Ellis

The St. Louis Cardinals took care of the vast majority of their offseason needs before the Major League Baseball Winter Meetings last week in Orlando, but one nagging question remained. What if rookie second baseman Kolten Wong, who hit .153 in 32 games for the Cardinals in 2013, is not ready to handle the everyday duties at second base? The Cardinals scrounged what was left of...

Cardinals pursue one-year contract with veteran 2B Mark Ellis

ST. LOUIS -- Mark Ellis wasn't the best second baseman on the free-agent market, but he sure looks like the best fit for the Cardinals. General manager John Mozeliak was seeking a player with experience who bats right-handed, would fit in an already tight clubhouse, wouldn't cost any trade chips and could handle second, short and third. Check, check, check, check and check...

The Dodgers announced on Twitter that they have declined their options on Mark Ellis and Chris Capuano. Ellis’ contract contained a $5.75MM club option, and Caupano’s deal contained an $8MM mutual option...

2012 Los Angeles Dodgers Season Review: Second Base

Mark Ellis Signed to a back-loaded two-year deal in the off-season, Mark Ellis only played in 110 games after nearly losing a leg on the play you see above, posting a ~2.7 WAR in the process. 35 now and turning 36 years of age next summer, Ellis can’t afford to lose anything physically beyond what Father Time was already taking away from him, particularly when so much of his value...

Mark Ellis a huge loss for Dodgers, plus other news and notes

I was definitely in the minority when the Dodgers signed Mark Ellis in November. Perhaps it's because living in Northern California, I get to watch a lot of Oakland Athletics' games, so I saw him play a lot. Perhaps it's because I have no idea what I'm talking about. This is what I wrote the day he signed: "Ellis will likely be the team's starting...
