Ellis inks one-year deal with Dodgers

The Dodgers have reportedly come to terms on a one-year deal with catcher A.J. Ellis.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported Tuesday evening that Ellis signed for $4.25 million before the midnight ET deadline to file for salary arbitration.

Ellis, drafted by the Dodgers in the 18th round of the 2003 First-Year Player Draft, started 93 games for Los Angeles last year, including all four of the club’s postseason games. He hit .191/.323/.254 with 12 extra-base hits and 25 RBIs in 2014.

With Ellis signed, the Dodgers have four remaining players eligible for arbitration: closer Kenley Jansen, third baseman Justin Turner, pitcher Juan Nicosia and outfielder Chris Heisey.
