Dodgers | Tim Federowicz expected to be primary option

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 18:22:14 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Tim Federowicz said Tuesday, April 8, that he is prepared and expects to be the team's primary catcher while C A.J. Ellis (knee) is on the mend.

Fantasy Tip: Federowicz certainly has more offensive upside than Drew Butera, but this is just the word of the player and not the word of the skipper. However, Federowicz is worth scooping up in all NL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats which require two starting backstops.

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed C A.J. Ellis (knee) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, April 8, and recalled C Tim Federowicz from Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Federowicz and Drew Butera will split catching duties with Ellis out for four to six weeks. Federowicz should be your first target in NL-only or two-catcher leagues, as he has more offensive upside than Butera.

Dodgers | A.J. Ellis to have knee surgery

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 19:20:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C A.J. Ellis (knee) is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee for a meniscus tear. The surgery will take place Tuesday, April 8, according to the team. According to a source, Ellis could return from surgery in four to six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: The team has Drew Butera as their backup and could recall Miguel Olivo or Tim Federowicz from Triple-A. However, they may not be satisfied with either of them and could look for outside help. All three replacements only serve as depth in NL-only leagues.
