2014 Dodgers in Review: C A.J. Ellis

PA AVG OBP SLG wRC+ HR WAR MLB 347 .191 .323 .254 72 3 -0.4 What happened in 2014: Struggled horrendously at the plate and spent time on the disabled list twice, once for what was easily the funniest injury of the season. (Sorry, A.J.) If A.J. Ellis did anything this season, it was to allow…

Russell Martin: Former Dodger, Future Dodger?

It’s now the offseason, so it’s time to talk about potential roster upgrades. The Dodgers have huge holes in the bullpen, some minor ones in the starting rotation, and of course, the left side of the infield. However, the biggest hole in last year’s lineup was catcher.

Catching Nothing But Grief

It’s been a tough few games for Dodger catchers, but then again, it’s been a tough season for Dodger catchers. Tim Federowicz not only went 0-5 in the loss to Arizona, he let the go-ahead run score when he couldn’t handle Chris Withrow‘s wild intentional walk throw (which, to be fair, is largely on Withrow…

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…
