A.J. Ellis singles, walks, caught stealing in first rehabilitation game.

Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis went 1 for 2 with a single and a walk, and was caught stealing in his first rehabilitation game Sunday in El Paso, Texas. He caught all nine innings of the Albuquerque Isotopes’ 11-0 loss to the El Paso Chihuahuas.

Ellis, who had arthroscopic surgery on the meniscus in his left knee April 8, is expected to play at least one more game with the Isotopes.

“He’ll play tomorrow then we’ll evaluate where he’s at,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Sunday.

Tuesday will mark exactly five weeks since the surgery. Initial estimates placed the timetable for Ellis’ recovery at 4 to 6 weeks.
