Dodgers unsure how Grandal, Ellis will split time

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/26/15) The Dodgers aren't sure how they'll platoon their two catchers, according to the Orange County Register.

A.J. Ellis has been the team's primary option the past few seasons, but the club brought in Yasmani Grandal during the offseason. While Grandal has a much higher offensive upside, it's unclear how much he'll play once the regular season begins. 

"There’s nothing going to come out of this camp where we’re going to say, ‘OK, this guy is going to start 72 percent of the time’" general manager Andrew Friedman said. "It’s going to be much more about Donnie (Mattingly) writing the lineup each and every day for what gives us the best chance to win that day."

Mattingly admitted that Grandal has "tremendous upside offensively," so it's possible he could lead that way more often. While Mattingly has indicated that he doesn't want to assign any personal catchers yet, there's a sense Ellis could be used when Clayton Kershaw is on the mound. 

Grandal hit .225/.327/.401 over 377 at-bats last year. Ellis hit .191/.323/.254 over 283 at-bats. 

Padres' Yasmani Grandal willing to lose playing time to help team

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/2/15) New Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal said Monday he is willing to allow time to be split between he and A.J. Ellis if it means the team wins more this season.

"A.J. couldn't put it any better: He said, 'Whatever it takes to win,'" Grandal said. "If that day, A.J. is the man for the job behind the plate and we are going to get a win with A.J. behind the plate, that's going to be him. At the end of the day, if we get a ring, that's going to be a team win and we all have rings. Twenty years from now, I get to show that ring off and say, 'Hey, I won a World Series.'"

Grandal, who hit .225 with 15 home runs and 49 RBI for the Padres in 2014, was traded to Los Angeles in the offseason in exchange for Matt Kemp among other players.

"I think both teams got what they wanted," Grandal said. "The Dodgers were looking for a catcher. The Padres were looking for a big-time bat. That's what Kemp brought to the table and that's what I brought to the table."

Dodgers' Mattingly on catcher situation: 'We'll work it out'

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/15/15) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he hasn't given much thought yet to how he is going to divide up playing time between catchers Yasmani Grandal and A.J. Ellis, per the Los Angeles Times.

Ellis, who started a team-high 89 games at catcher in 2014, has been the team's primary catcher since 2012. Grandal is in his first season with Los Angeles following an offseason trade with San Diego.

“Just knowing that Yasmani was a guy that at the end of the year, we didn’t really like being up there with men in scoring position. He’s got a big upside offensively we think, and really comfortable with him behind the plate," Mattingly said Wednesday. “What makes that easier for me is dealing with A.J. Talking to A.J. [Tuesday], knowing that could be a little bit of a sticky situation, his first response was, 'I just want to win.' That’ll work itself out.”

Mattingly added he is not looking to match up his catchers with certain starting pitchers.

“I’m not really comfortable any time we talk about just one guy catching that certain pitcher every time because that it really gets you caught in the middle,” Mattingly said. “I can’t say that I really favor that. The catching situation, we’ll work it out.”

Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis gets one-year, $4.25 million deal

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/13/15) The Dodgers agreed to a one-year, $4.25 million contract with catcher A.J. Ellis, avoiding arbitration, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Ellis, who is expected to play a backup role to Yasmani Grandal in 2015, has averaged 114 games over the last three seasons for the Dodgers. He struggled in 2014, batting just .191 with three home runs and 25 RBI in 93 games.

Ellis, closer Kenley Jansen, infielder Dee Gordon, third baseman Justin Turner, catcher Drew Butera, pitcher Juan Nicascio and newly-acquired outfielder Chris Heisey.
