Brad Ausmus To DL, AJ Ellis Called Up

The Dodgers announced today that they had placed 41 year old catcher Brad Ausmus on the disabled list. This is the first time Ausmus has ever been on the DL in his 17 year career. AJ Ellis has been recalled from AAA Albuquerque. The move is retroactive to Friday.


Dylan Hernandez tweets that AJ Ellis will catch Charlie Haeger tomorrow.


  1. I hope A J gets some playing time!

  2. I'm sure he'll get a couple ABs. But, as long as Russell Martin is healthy, it's hard to imagine Ellis playing much.

  3. And of course, Torre believes deep down in resting Russell, so I'm sure A.J. will get into plenty of games.

  4. I actually had the comment originally with /sarcasm, but I decided it was unnecessary.

    At least Ellis is starting tomorrow, though I don't see why Manny needs every day game after a night game off, especially right now so early in the season and with Andre hurting.
