Ellis getting up to speed after knee surgery

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis, just 10 days removed from left knee surgery, resumed hitting, throwing and catching on the recent road trip.

"I can do everything, baseball-wise, except run," Ellis said Friday, "and that's not a big part of my game."

He's had similar surgery on the knee before but said the rehab process is different.

"It's a little more accelerated this time, because it was in the offseason [after the 2012 season] the last time," Ellis said. "The biggest thing is, I felt so much better when I woke up the morning after surgery, and it's all been good since."
