A.J. Ellis suffers severe ankle sprain during no-hitter celebration

Ellis jumped up and landed on Drew Butera’s discarded catcher’s gear during the celebration, he said.

When you’re a 33-year-old catcher, hitting .170, and you’ve just returned from the DL, this isn’t the smartest thing to do.

Miguel Olivo, come on down!

Oh, wait.....

If Olivio had kept his mouth shut, both he and Alex Guerrero would be in LA now.

That said, Dodgers pitchers seem to be responding well to Butera.

Given how low H/9 has gotten (tied for 6th lowest H/9 in the NL in the past half century) we may see a few no-hitters this season.

Are you watching tonight's Dodger game Ray? You should be.

As a guy who once tore one of the posterior tendons in his ankle by stepping down from a curb, I can relate.

Feel better, AJ.

Miguel Olivo, come on down!

Oh, wait.....


Tim Federowicz is probably a better player than Olivo, anyway.

Chad Kreuter is available.

Actually, if you are 33 and have a .170 batting average, staying on the DL might be your best strategy.
