Los Angeles Dodgers catcher AJ Ellis has been put on the DL with a tear in his left knees of the meniscus.
The Dodgers already have pitchers Clayton Kershaw and Brian Wilson on the 15 day DL and many fans are calling it the “curse of TWC.”
AJ is expected to be out for 4-6 weeks while in rehab but will stay with the Dodgers in the club house to help the team’s other catchers get ready for games.
Per @Dodgers on twitter –
Dodgers catcher AJ Ellis is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee for a meniscus tear tomorrow morning in Los Angeles.
Because of the Injury LA would have had a lack of depth in their catching stocks so they have called up Tim Federowicz from AAA Albuquerque.
They already had Drew Butera in the team but he is a .180 lifetime hitter and went 0-3 in the last game against San Francisco.
