A.J. Ellis gets start for Dodgers, in place of Yasmani Grandal
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal isn't in the starting lineup for Sunday's game. Grandal has started a team-high 56 games behind the plate, including six of the last seven. 

In Grandal's place, A.J. Ellis gets the start at catcher for the 25th time this year. Ellis and Grandal have split the last four starts.

Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal out, A.J. Ellis in on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

After starting four straight games behind the plate, Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal will get a rest on Friday, as he is being held out of the starting lineup against the Padres. Grandal recently returned from a brief stint on the disabled list with a concussion, and has hit .237 (9 for 38) in the 12 games since his return.

He will cede the catching duties to A.J. Ellis with Clayton Kershaw on the mound for the Dodgers.

Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis still getting acclimated to backup role
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis started just his 11th game of the season on Saturday against the Rockies. For Ellis, it's something he's still trying to get used to, according to the L.A. Times.

Ellis understands why manager Don Mattingly is going with Yasmani Grandal behind the plate.

"This is a guy who's swinging the bat as well as anybody in the National League right now," he said. "He certainly helped carry us through this road trip. We need his bat in the middle of the lineup, his versatility as a switch hitter."

Ellis is hitting .125 in 32 at-bats this season.

"I just try to be mindful that this guy was a starting catcher last year and he's become more of the second catcher," Mattingly said. "I want to make sure he doesn't feel slighted in any way."

Dodgers' Andre Ethier, Yasmani Grandal not in lineup on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is resting a number of regulars on Saturday against the Rockies. Included in that group is right fielder Andre Ethier and catcher Yasmani Grandal.

Ethier has started 17 of the last 19 games in right field for the Dodgers, and he's been hot at the plate lately. Over his last 10 games, Ethier is hitting .343 with a home run and five RBI. Scott Van Slyke is making the start in right field on Saturday.

Grandal meanwhile has started five straight games behind the plate, so Mattingly will give his legs a rest. A.J. Ellis will catch Zack Greinke against the Rockies. 

"A.J. hasn't been playing a whole lot lately," Mattingly said to MLB.com. "I'm trying to get him in there against left-handers as much as I can. I never worry about A.J. as a [good] teammate. I just want to make sure he doesn't feel slighted. He'll be a bigger part of the mix in the next section of games, when we have day after night, and travel."

Dodgers' Grandal, Ethier, Uribe out of lineup Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal, right fielder Andre Ethier and third baseman Juan Uribe are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Rockies.

Grandal has been red hot in May, raising his average from .189 to .307 in a span of seven games, but he'll get a second straight day off Sunday after Saturday's game was postponed. A.J. Ellis will start behind the plate.

The Dodgers are heavy road favorites (-185) Sunday.
