Not only does Los Angeles Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis put up with Yasiel Puig’s frequent hijinks, he demonstrates superb patience in the batter’s box as well. Six Dodgers have at least 13 Plate Appearances, and Ellis leads the group with 57 pitches seen. These are the kind of stats you get after three games. While we’re here, let’s give Ellis this season’s first Midnight Player of the Week, the Pre-Opening Day Edition.
For his patience, Ellis has three walks and a .462 OBP on the season.
