Report: Padres hire A.J. Ellis as special assistant to baseball operations

MLB.com’s A.J. Cassavell reports that catcher A.J. Ellis has been hired as a special assistant to the Padres’ baseball operations department under executive VP and GM A.J. Preller. That’s a lot of A.J.’s.

There’s got to be a good dissertation in analyzing why back-up catchers seem to flow into baseball management, although I’m not sure if it’s something for the sociologists, the psychologists, or the people in schools of business and administration.
