They’ve played 7 games and already Ellis is out with a meniscus tear and his batterymate Kershaw is out for a month.
It was not said how Ellis, who had four singles and four walks in 28 plate appearances to start the 2014 season, suffered the injury. Ellis was out in a bang-bang play at the plate Saturday but remained in the game, though he did not play Sunday.
Fedex will probably be recalled from AAA Albuquerque to replace him.
Old friend Nathan Eovaldi is talked up as a strong addition to your fantasy baseball team.
