Dodgers catcher injured in no-hitter celebration

Published Add your comment

Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis has only appeared in 15 games this season, and has just a .170 batting average.

Ellis will have to wait at least two weeks to up those numbers, after spraining his right ankle while celebrating Josh Beckett's no-hitter in the Dodgers 6-0 win over the Phillies in Philadelphia.

Ellis did not catch Beckett's no-no, and due to his offensive struggles this season, has lost his job as Los Angeles' every day catcher, and is splitting duties with Drew Butera.
