A.J. Ellis will have his left knee scoped to repair meniscus tear.
Tough news for the Dodgers as Ellis is expected to miss four-to-six weeks after surgery and that's more on the optimistic side of estimates. Drew Butera will step in as the team's primary backstop and Tim Federowicz should be recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque this week. Neither backstop offers much in the fantasy world. If you have unlimited DL spots, then you can stash Ellis, but if you have only a spot or two available, it's best to drop him for the time being.ANALYST: Howard Bender
