Worth noting

• Hanley Ramirez is considering playing winter ball in the Dominican Republic for the first time in several years, manager Don Mattingly said. "He's talked about it," Mattingly said. "I think it's good for guys. He said he hasn't played there in awhile and wants to work on stuff."

• A.J. Ellis came into Saturday night's game 0-for-26, and Mattingly conceded it might be the result of playing more games than he ever has. "He hit a bullet to left last night," said Mattingly. "I can't say it's the result of catching that many games. It could be. You see a lot of catchers wear down late in the year. You look at the mental nature of playing every game decided by one run. That wears guys down too. Every pitch is big."
