Player Notes
A.J. Ellis went 0-for-2 with a walk in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

Advice: Ellis hadn't played in nearly a week due to a bruised hand. It shouldn't be an issue moving forward and he will continue to catch Clayton Kershaw's starts regularly.

A.J. Ellis admitted that his hand is still swollen, but he hopes to be available off the bench to either hit or catch on Friday.

Advice: Ellis was able to hit off a tee before the game without issue. Yasmani Grandal is once again getting the start behind the dish with the veteran on the shelf. Look for Ellis to return to the lineup at some point over the weekend.

A.J. Ellis (hand) is available off the bench Thursday.

Advice: Ellis got struck by a ricocheted pitch on Wednesday night and suffered a bruised hand, but he was able to throw before Thursday's matinee. Yasmani Grandal will start behind the plate with right-hander Mike Bolsinger on the bump. Ellis is the Dodgers' backup catcher, but he's expected to be fairly active this year.

A.J. Ellis said Thursday that he has the "typical soreness that you'd expect" in his right hand.

Advice: Ellis got hit in the hand by a ricocheted ball on Wednesday night and will sit out Thursday's series finale in San Francisco, but it sounds like the Dodgers' backup catcher might be available over the weekend. X-rays were taken and turned up negative.

A.J. Ellis told reporters that the X-rays taken on his right hand came back negative.

Advice: Ellis was plunked on a ricochet during Wednesday's game against the Giants, as teammate Chris Hatcher hit Justin Maxwell and the ball thunked back to Ellis, who took it from the mask to the right hand. When he attempted to throw the ball to Adrian Gonzalez while warming up, two throws sailed into right field and Ellis was pulled from the game. Ellis serves mainly as the Dodgers' backup catcher. Consider him day-to-day unless the Dodgers say otherwise.
