NEW YORK -- Dodgers catcher A.J. Elliswill miss his second consecutive game Saturday because of a sore left knee.
Ellis underwent an MRI exam in the morning that revealed nothing more than inflammation. He said he would “for sure” play in the Dodgers’ series finale against the New York Mets on Sunday.
“It’s been a little sore for the last 10 days or so, but that’s normal in the season for me,” Ellis said.
Backup Matt Treanor will start again in Ellis' place.
The Dodgers lineup on Saturday against the Mets:
Bobby Abreu LF
Adam Kennedy 2B
Matt Kemp CF
Andre Ethier RF
James Loney 1B
