Worth noting

• Catcher A.J. Ellis was out of the lineup for the second straight game Sunday after taking a foul ball off of his right knee twice. Mattingly said that he expected Ellis to be ready to play Monday and that the catcher would be available Sunday in an emergency situation.

"It's not something that's actually damaged," Mattingly said. "It's more bruised, a little inflamed. So it's not like he's hurting it by having to [play]."
