Dodger Isotope News

A J Ellis

The Dodgers called up catcher A J Ellis from Triple A Albuquerque. I thought somthing was going on when A J was a late scratch for last nights Isotopes game. Ellis will take the place of Dodgers reliever Will Ohman, who was placed on the DL with a sore left shoulder. is reporting that Ellis expected to stay only until Hiroki Kuroda is activated off the disabled list, which could be as soon as next week. Good luck A J. We will be cheering for you from Albuquerque. I have not yet found out who will share the catching duties with Danny Ardoin in Albuquerque.

Hiroki Kuroda

Dylan Hernandez of the L A Times is reporting that Hiroki Kuroda will start on Monday against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
