LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers catcher A. Will Butcher Jersey .J. Ellis underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday and is expected to be out four to six weeks. Ellis had a 20-minute operation performed by Dodgers physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache to repair the medial meniscus in his knee. Ellis is expected to rejoin his teammates on Wednesday and begin rehabilitation. The club recalled catcher Tim Federowicz from Triple-A Albuquerque and started him against Detroits Max Scherzer in the opener of a two-game interleague series. Drew Butera was Federowiczs backup. "A.J. is the kind of guy that from a preparation standpoint has been what weve asked -- to know what hes doing when he puts the fingers down, to know why, to understand our pitchers and all the matchups and everything else," manager Don Mattingly said. "We ask a lot of our catchers, and A.J. has bought into that. So were going to miss that, no question. But hes going to be back here tomorrow, and hes the kind of guy that will be doing everything to help Fed and Drew out and still be a part of what were doing. Ellis injured his left knee Saturday while rounding third base and trying to score from second on a single by Andre Ethier. Ellis underwent the same procedure on his left knee following the 2012 season. "I know he felt a misstep the other day and kind of felt it right then. And it was really sore after that," Mattingly said. Ellis joined Clayton Kershaw, setup man Brian Wilson and Chad Billingsley on the disabled list, and Yasiel Puig sat out his second game because of a swollen left thumb. Puig was hurt when he made a headfirst slide into first base on an infield hit during Saturdays 7-2 loss to San Francisco. Federowicz appeared in 56 games with the Dodgers last season, hitting four home runs and driving in 16 runs, and he has played in 66 big league games with Los Angeles since making his big league debut in 2011. He was optioned to Albuquerque on March 22, but remained with the big club on its extended roster for the two-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Australia. Los Angeles kept Butera on the active big league roster because he could be sent to the minor leagues without clearing waivers -- unlike Federowicz. "I think it just tests our depth," Mattingly said. "We feel like Fed and Drew are capable to get through this stretch with out A.J., the same as our bullpen without Brian. We cant really say its going to be good getting through this stretch without Clayton, because theres nobody quite like him. But I do think were capable of winning games and doing what we have to do." Andy Greene Jersey . Patty Mills had 20 points, Tim Duncan had 11 points and 13 rebounds in limited action, and San Antonio rolled to a 110-82 victory over Milwaukee that kept the Bucks winless in the new year. Steve Santini Jersey . The Brazilian-born strikers brace drew him level with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo as the leagues leading scorers with 17 goals apiece through 16 rounds. "The important thing is to help the team win, not the goals," Diego Costa said. After a first half dominated by defence, Atletico pressed Valencia into its area and Diego Costa did the rest. http://www.devilsauthority.com/authentic-brian-boyle-devils-jersey/ .com) - Nate Buss 3-pointer with 5.The most interesting game in Week 17 was Montreals dominate 36-5 win over Hamilton. I wondered when the Montreal Alouettes were going to find a new bright light at quarterback, our games most important position. Well, after watching Troy Smith play, going 17-35 for 247 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions, you wonder if that bright light is beginning to shine. Now, both Josh Neiswander and Tanner Marsh are good quarterbacks, but that is the problem; they are good and not necessarily great. Neiswander, from Angelo State, and Marsh, from Arkansas Tech, have each had their opportunities to perform. Smith is from Ohio State and already was a proven performer. Football is a tough sport and one of the toughest aspects of the sport are getting chances; you have very few. Most get just one, a minority get two and if you do not overwhelm ASAP you will not get a third. Smith did not overwhelm but he did look good. He impressed enough for a second chance to be the transition from greatness in Anthony Calvillo to hopefully more greatness for the Alouettes. The next question is where does that leave Calvillo? The truth is we wont know until as late as March or April. You cant dismiss the 20 years of CFL football, 16 with Montreal. You cant dismiss the 455 touchdown passes or the 79,816 passing yards as those accomplishments have extreme value. But you cant dismiss age either, Calvillos being 42. The hardest thing for Calvillo to do is leave the game under the circumstances he did: being assisted off the field due to head trauma rather than walking off, head held high. And lets not rationalize it, a concussion is head trauma. Its just not the way you want to go out and if so, it will grind inside of you for a long time. I speak from experience here. I would not be surprised if AC tried to play one more year, not only for the closure but to keep the “what if” demons away. Very slowly but in logical fashion GM and head coach Jim Popp is making the Alouettes a winner again. Smith, Duron Carter, Tyrell Sutton and others are being filtered into the roster, being evaluated in the games remaining, and will innevitably improve the team in the future. Mirco Mueller Jersey. On the opposite side with Edmonton and Winnipeg, the 2014 season starts now. Its terrible to say as I am sure if you are a fan of either of those teams you didnt want to hear that but as teams out of the playoffs, it is a unique opportunity to see what you have for the future. If both Winnipeg and Edmonton won the last two games, so what? If they found a couple of gems at specific positions, that would be extremely beneficial. There may not be a more negative or even depressing atmosphere than a pro football locker room without playoff goals. It is very subtle but you can feel its insecurity. Both Edmonton and Winnipeg should pay the price for future success right now. In Toronto and Hamilton, it is time to rededicate. Toronto did not look good in their 26-20 win over the Blue Bombers and after two good performances, the Tiger-Cats did not have the focus and concentration needed to be respected on Sunday. Having said that, I would not be surprised if both team won in dominate fashion this week. Both Scott Milanovich and Kent Austin have been exceptional hires for each organization. To me, theyre more similar than different. Theyre demanding, have excellent attention to detail, and are confronting. Both teams will play with greater execution this week because of those two coaches. In Calgary only two words come to mind: complete team. In Saskatchewan, it is still up in the air; a Grey Cup game at home is out there for the taking. Thats an experience that, if accomplished, no one will forget. Forcing eight turnovers against the BC Lions was special. The best game of Week 18 is easy: Saskatchewan at Calgary on Saturday night. Which leads me to BC; it looks like they will have to do it the hard way: two road games in the playoffs to make it to Regina. Most impressive aspect of Lions football right now is Stefan Logan. They found a running back from the past to help in the present and future. Logan and Andrew Harris, and maybe even Tim Brown too, that could be very effective. The Lions are dangerous because their back is against the wall.
