Andre Ethier said a report that he planned to retire from baseball is "totally untrue."
Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reported earlier Sunday that Ethier had informed family and friends that he was going to retire, but the veteran outfielder says that's not the case. The 35-year-old says that he's healthy and that teams have already shown an interest in signing him for 2018. Ethier was limited to just 38 games from 2016-17 due to injury.

Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reports that Andre Ethier has informed family and friends that he is retiring from Major League Baseball.

Ethier told Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times earlier this month that he planned to continue his playing career in 2018, but evidently he's changed his mind after spending some time with his family. The 35-year-old was limited to just 38 games from 2016-17 due to injury but will finish with a fine .285/.359/.463 batting line and 162 home runs over parts of 12 big league seasons.

Andre Ethier intends to continue his playing career next season.

Ethier recently hit the free agent market after the Dodgers bought out his $17.5 million for 2018. He turns 36 next April and has been limited to just 38 games over the past two seasons. He's going to have to earn a prominent role at his next stop.

The Dodgers declined Andre Ethier's $17.5 million option for 2018.

Instead, they'll pay him a $2.5 million buyout. The move doesn't come as a major surprise coming off of several injury-plagued and disappointing seasons. He'll look for a new home via free agency.

Andre Ethier is back in the Dodgers' lineup for Game 5 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Per Eric Stephen on Twitter, it's the first time that Ethier has started back-to-back games in the 2017 calendar. The full lineup goes Chris Taylor SS Cody Bellinger 1B Justin Turner 3B Yasiel Puig RF Andre Ethier LF Curtis Granderson CF Yasmani Grandal C Chase Utley 2B and Alex Wood on the mound.

Andre Ethier went 2-for-4 with a home run Tuesday in the Dodgers' NLCS Game 3 win over the Cubs.

Ethier got Los Angeles on the board with a game-tying solo shot to right field in the top of the second inning before hitting a single to center in the top of the fifth. The veteran outfielder was making his first start of the 2017 postseason and it was a surprise to see him batting fifth in this one, but he certainly rewarded manager Dave Roberts' trust.

Andre Ethier is starting in left field and batting fifth in Game 3 of the NLCS on Tuesday night against the Cubs.

It's the first start of the 2017 postseason for Ethier. Here is the full lineup for the Dodgers, who will try to go up 3-0 in the best-of-seven series against the Cubs and right-handed starter Kyle Hendricks: Chris Taylor SS, Cody Bellinger 1B, Justin Turner 3B, Yasiel Puig RF, Andre Ethier LF, Chase Utley 2B, Austin Barnes C, Joc Pederson CF, Yu Darvish SP.

Pinch-hitter Andre Ethier homered off Ricardo Pinto in the seventh to help the Dodgers edge the Phillies 5-4 on Thursday.

Ethier's homer tied the game, and the Dodgers went ahead in the same frame after Cody Bellinger knocked in Chris Taylor on a groundout. Ethier is 8-for-25 with two homers and a double since making his season debut on Sept. 1. If he keeps it up, he'll have an interesting case for a bench spot in October. He'd probably be more useful than Adrian Gonzalez, not that the Dodgers are necessarily going to carry either.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts indicated Thursday that he thinks Andre Ethier is incapable physically of being a regular player versus righties down the stretch.

Ethier has barely played the last two seasons due to injury, but he's suddenly back on the radar with Curtis Granderson and Joc Pederson struggling. However, while Ethier on Friday will get his fourth start in 15 games this month, it doesn't sound like he'll be more than a part-time player in the final weeks.

Dodgers activated OF Andre Ethier from the 60-day disabled list.

Ethier has missed the entire season thus far due to back and neck injuries. The 35-year-old still has some pop remaining in his bat and should be a useful left-handed bat off the bench over the final month of the regular season.

Andre Ethier (back) is dealing with minor neck soreness.

But this neck issue is not expected to keep Ethier from being activated from the disabled list when rosters expand on Friday. To date, the veteran outfielder has played in 10 minor league rehab games while on the mend from a herniated disc in his back which has kept him on the shelf for the entire 2017 season.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Andre Ethier (back) will be activated on Friday.

Ethier has played in 10 minor league rehab games, batting .219/.306/.281 over 36 plate appearances. The veteran outfielder will operate as a bench bat for Los Angeles down the stretch and will likely struggle to find regular opportunities in that role given the presence of left-handed hitters Curtis Granderson and Adrian Gonzalez. Ethier has been sidelined all season due to a herniated disc.

Andre Ethier (back) went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts and a walk Wednesday in his third rehab game with High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

The promising news is he was able to play six innings in left field without his back flaring up. Ethier will likely join the Dodgers when rosters expand in September, assuming he can avoid further setbacks. The veteran outfielder has been sidelined all season.
Thu, Aug 17, 2017 08:46:00 AM

Andre Ethier (back) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga in the coming days.

While Ethier is nearing a rehab assignment, nothing in his timetable has changed. The Dodgers do not expect to activate him from the disabled list until roster expand at the beginning of September. The veteran outfielder has yet to play in a game this season.
Wed, Aug 9, 2017 07:40:00 PM

Dodgers' skipper Dave Roberts said Friday that he doesn't expect Andre Ethier (back) to rejoin the club until after rosters expand in September.

Ethier has yet to make his season debut due to a lingering back issue. He should't be on any fantasy rosters at this point.
