Los Angeles Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis will miss four to six weeks after having a minor surgery to repair a torn medial meniscus in his left knee, according to the Associated Press.

With Ellis out of action, the team will likely start Drew Butera, who was acquired by the Dodgers last summer in a trade with the Minnesota Twins. Ellis batted .238 with 1o home runs and 52 RBI in 115 games for the Dodgers last season.
