The Second Baseman was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in 1999, but before he would play an inning for KC, he was dealt to the Oakland A's in a three-team trade. Two years later, he debuted for Oakland, and in 2003, he was anointed the starting Second Baseman and had 137 Hits. A hand injury forced him out of 2004, but he returned in 2005 and batted .316, a career-high.Ellis would be inconsistent over the next few seasons, though he did have a 19 Home Run season in 2007. He was traded to the Colorado Rockies during the 2011 Season, and he finished up his run with the Athletics with 1,015 Hits.
