Padres' A.J. Ellis: Playing time will be scarce
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis' playing time will take a hit following the promotion of catching prospect Francisco Mejia.

The Padres are going to split starts behind the dish between Austin Hedges and Mejia -- who homered twice Thursday -- pushing Ellis to third on the catching depth chart, according to MLB.com's AJ Cassavell. The veteran backstop has been serviceable when called upon this season (.291/.389/.369 in 56 games), but the Padres understandably want to give their younger options playing time over the final month with nothing left to play for.

Padres' A.J. Ellis: Reaches base four times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis went 3-for-3 with a walk and an RBI in Saturday's 5-3 loss to San Francisco.

Ellis delivered his first three-hit performance of the season, and now owns a healthy .337/.426/.430 over 31 games. The 37-year-old has been solid in a timeshare with Raffy Lopez while Austin Hedges (elbow) has been sidelined, but the latter is expected to be activated from the disabled list prior to Sunday's series finale against the Giants. Ellis' career-best batting average and lengthy major-league experience should allow him to stick on the roster, but his playing time will likely take a significant hit following Hedges' return.

Padres' A.J. Ellis: Smacks first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis went 2-for-4 with his first home run of the 2018 season in Saturday's win over the Dodgers.

Ellis got the nod behind the dish against the left-handed Alex Wood. The veteran backstop's big day at the plate upped his season line to .315/.406/.444 in 65 plate appearances. Ellis has been on the short side of a platoon with Raffy Lopez, but the latter is scuffling at the plate, so the 37-year-old could start to see more starts until Austin Hedges (concussion) returns from the disabled list.

Padres' A.J. Ellis: Starts Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis started and went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

Ellis got the start Wednesday after the recently-recalled Raffy Lopez started Tuesday's contest. It appears that the two backstops will split starting duties while Austin Hedges (elbow) mends on the disabled list. The 37-year-old is slashing .214/.343/.214 in 36 plate appearances this year.

Padres' A.J. Ellis: Collects two hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis started behind the dish and went 2-for-4 in Sunday's 14-2 loss to the Mets.

It was the veteran's first multi-hit performance in 29 plate appearances this season. Austin Hedges is the clear-cut starter in San Diego, limiting Ellis to starts on traditional rest days for catchers.
