LEXINGTON, Ky. WKYT) - The Dodgers are expected to be without catcher A.J. Ellis for at least the next month, The Los Angeles Times is reporting.
Ellis will have an arthroscopic procedure Tuesday for torn cartilage in his left knee.
Provided the damage to the knee isn’t more extensive than the Dodgers believe it to be, Ellis could return in four to six weeks, according to a person familiar with the situation who spoke under the condition of anonymity.
The person said Ellis was injured Saturday when he planted his left leg rounding third base in the seventh-inning of the Dodgers’ 7-2 defeat to the San Francisco Giants. He was thrown out at home on the play.
