Brad Ausmus to DL, A.J. Ellis Recalled

Official Dodgers Twitter:

For first time in 17 years, Brad Ausmus is headed to DL with piched nerve in back. AJ Ellis recalled.

It can’t be surprising that a 40-year-old catcher tweaked his back, but it’s impressive that this is the first time he’s ever put it there. Ausmus went 1-4 with a double in his only start of the season on Thursday; Ellis went 1-4 with a walk in his only AAA action thus far.
