The Orioles, who have lost Matt Wieters to an elbow injury that might require surgery, might be interested in Olivo, but the Dodgers are likely just as interested in keeping him for insurance while Tim Federowicz continues to get seasoning as the starting catcher for Albuquerque.
Ellis went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer on Monday night for the Isotopes. He has been on the disabled list since April 6, meaning that he will return five weeks after surgery. The original prognosis was four to six weeks.
In other injury news, pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu is expected to throw off a mound on Tuesday to test his healing right shoulder blade. A decision then will be made whether he will have another bullpen session, pitch batting practice or head out on a Minor League rehab assignment.
