Marlins' A.J. Ellis: Remains in backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis has only 13 hits and two RBI in 65 at-bats as the Marlins' backup catcher this season.

The veteran backstop has started only 16 games this season with J.T. Realmuto healthy and playing well. Ellis has zero extra-base hits this season and is utilized primarily when Realmuto needs an off day. The 36-year-old is ineffective at the plate and sees too little playing time to warrant fantasy consideration.

Marlins' A.J. Ellis: Stuck behind much younger starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis is batting .213 this with no extra-base hits and two RBI in 55 at-bats this season as the backup catcher in Miami.

Ellis is having trouble getting on the field this season, stuck behind the much younger and more durable starter JT Realmuto. As the backup catcher, Ellis is even having trouble finding a spot as a pinch hitter, only playing that role twice this season. All in all, it appears age has caught up to Ellis, and an increase in playing time doesn't appear to be in the cards anytime soon for the 36-year-old backstopper.

Marlins' A.J. Ellis: Role as backup unlikely to change
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis has managed only five hits in 37 at-bats so far this season.

The 36-year-old tends to start day games that follow a night game, and with J.T. Realmuto putting together another good season, it's unlikely to see any significant change behind the plate for the Marlins. For the season, Ellis is slashing .135/.220/.135 with one RBI, and he has been utilized as a pinch hitter only twice this year.

Marlins' A.J. Ellis: Working through early-season struggles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis has two hits in 20 plate appearances to start off 2017.

Still the backup catcher to J.T. Realmuto, Ellis has not done anything to push for more playing time. Realmuto's hot start hasn't helped Ellis' case, and neither have the seven strikeouts he has on his ledger in the early stages of the season. The 36-year-old slashed .216/.301/.298 with the Dodgers and Phillies last year.

Marlins' A.J. Ellis: Returns to lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis (hamstring) went 1-for-3 with a run scored during Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals.

Ellis missed extended time with a hamstring strain this spring but seems to have made a full recovery as he played five innings in a minor league game over the weekend and started Tuesday's Grapefruit League contest. He'll open the season as the primary backup catcher to J.T. Realmuto.
