YASMANI GRANDAL RUMORS

Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis welcomes adding Yasmani Grandal

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) A starting catcher for three straight seasons, A.J. Ellis said he's glad the Los Angeles Dodgers added Yasmani Grandal, even though he plays the same position. ''It's good,'' Ellis said. ''In all honesty, I don't need a title as a starting catcher, or backup catcher. I just want to be a World Series-winning catcher.'' When the Dodgers acquired Grandal on Dec...

I don’t like the fact the Dodgers had to trade Matt Kemp to get him, but here we are. Let’s look at just what the Dodgers have in Grandal. Here’s what I...

Dodgers should look at the Padres' Yasmani Grandal to upgrade at catcher

I love A.J. Ellis. He's a good baseball player, a great interview and an even better person. There's no "but" here.
