Dodgers C A.J. Ellis sprains ankle in no-hitter celebration, goes on disabled list

  • Print

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis went on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right ankle Monday, a day after getting hurt while celebrating Josh Beckett's no-hitter.

Ellis rushed to join his teammates in the celebration on Sunday in Philadelphia. Around home plate, he stepped on the discarded mask of backup Drew Butera, who caught the majors' first no-hitter of the season.

"I wanted to be a part of it. It's a great day, a great experience to be a part of. I quickly lost my thrill for what happened," Ellis said. "Rolled it pretty good. I'm beyond frustrated, still kind of shocked."

Ellis was scheduled to see the team physician later Monday. He had his ankle treated throughout the flight home, alternating ice and compression.

"Getting off the plane I was feeling really good, but this morning, as they predicted, it was hard moving around once I got up," he said.

It is the second DL stint for Ellis. He was out April 8-May 13 after left knee surgery.

The team recalled catcher Tim Federowicz from Triple-A Albuquerque, where he was hitting .298 in 17 games. He played 13 games for the Dodgers in April.

Manager Don Mattingly said Ellis' injury is poor timing, but that he feels comfortable with either Butera or Federowicz. Butera started Monday night at home against the Cincinnati Reds.

Also out for the Dodgers was shortstop Hanley Ramirez, who missed his fourth straight game because of a lower calf injury.
