Andre Ethier tripled and scored to lead the Dodgers past the Indians 1-0 on Monday.
Ethier led off the seventh inning with a towering fly to deep left off Corey Kluber that deflected off Michael Brantley's glove. Kluber coaxed a weak ground out to shortstop from Juan Uribe, froze A.J. Ellis on a curveball that was actually outside, intentionally walked Hanley Ramirez, and then gave up Clint Robinson's first career hit, an infield single that scored Ethier. The 32-year-old Ethier has been nothing more than NL-only fodder this year. After finishing 1-for-3 tonight, he's slashing a meager .249/.302/.373 with four homers and 31 RBI. Jul 1 - 12:54 AM

Andre Ethier blasted a three-run homer on Sunday, powering the Dodgers to a 6-0 victory over the Cardinals.

Ethier's three-run blast off Shelby Miller in the fifth inning provided more than enough support for Clayton Kershaw who was brilliant on the afternoon. With the 1-for-4 effort, Ethier is now hitting .248/.301/.365 with four homers and 31 RBI on the year.

Andre Ethier struck out in his only at-bat against the Cardinals on Friday.

Ethier, who didn't start because of a swollen knee, was forced to come on after Scott Van Slyke was ejected. The Dodgers face righties the next two days, so they'd prefer to have Ethier in center if he's healthy.

Andre Ethier is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Friday due to swelling in his knee.

The swelling is from the effect of fouling a pitch off of his knee. Scott Van Slyke is getting the start in his place on Friday and would continue to see additional at-bats for as long as he remains sidelined.

Andre Ethier went 0-for-4 in the loss to the Padres on Friday and has one extra-base hit and one RBI in June.

By refusing to play Matt Kemp in center field, manager Don Mattingly has locked himself into playing Ethier fairly regularly lately and he's been a liability. If this keeps up, it dramatically increases the chances of a Joc Pederson callup.

Andre Ethier pulled up rather than crash into the wall trying to field Brandon Barnes' game-winning triple in the 10h inning Saturday against the Rockies.

It would have been a disappointing play regardless, but that Ethier seemed to get scared of the wall in the 10th inning of a tie game really didn't look very good. It probably won't have any ramifications, but it's one of those things that could add to the Dodgers' incentive to call up Joc Pederson to help out in center.
Jun 7 - 9:07 PM

Andre Ethier had a homer and a three-run triple Tuesday to lead the Dodgers to a 6-3 win over the Reds.

The homer was just his third of the year, and the triple was his first. He scored twice after entering the game with just nine runs in 44 games this year. It's not that he hasn't been hitting -- he entered the night with a .323 average in May -- it's just that no one at the bottom of the order has been driving him in.

Rob Bradford of hears from an industry source that the Red Sox have not shown interest in a trade for Dodgers' outfielder Andre Ethier.

The Red Sox are exploring the trade market for outfielders, but Either isn't considered an option at this time and GM Ben Cherington said teams aren't really in the trade mindset quite yet. Ethier still has three years and $53.5 million left on his contract after 2014, a large sum of money for someone who is best utilized as a utility player due to his poor production against left-handed pitching.

Andre Ethier is not in the Dodgers starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Giants.

Despite the fact that he has had tremendous success in his career against opposing starter Matt Cain, it's Carl Crawford that is drawing the start in left field for the Dodgers.
May 10 - 1:08 PM

Andre Ethier is not in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday.

The Dodgers are going with an outfield of Carl Crawford, Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig. Ethier is hitting .248/.306/.337 this season for Los Angeles.
May 8 - 6:18 PM

Andre Ethier is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

He's the odd man out in the Dodgers' outfield shuffle. Matt Kemp will handle center field Sunday and will be flanked by Carl Crawford and Yasiel Puig.
May 4 - 9:45 AM

Andre Ethier went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his return to the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday.

Ethier sat out Tuesday's game with flu-like symptoms. He's batting just .206/.261/.302 on the young season.
Apr 24 - 8:43 AM

Andre Ethier is not in the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday due to the flu.

Ethier has been under the weather for the last 4-5 days. The Dodgers are going with an outfield of Carl Crawford, Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig on Tuesday.
Apr 22 - 6:30 PM

Andre Ethier hit a three-run homer off Mike Bolsinger in the win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Ethier is hitting just .214 in 56 at-bats, but he's driven in 13 runs anyway. That he's sitting against lefties makes him a mediocre play in mixed leagues right now, but he should have more value as the year goes on.
Apr 19 - 11:16 PM

Andre Ethier went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles, a steal, and an RBI Wednesday against the Padres.

Hopefully this contest spurs Ethier from his sluggish start; he entered 2-for-15 with two singles. Once Matt Kemp returns, Ethier can finally be confined to a strong-side platoon role analysts have been demanding for a few years now. He can handle Joe Ross, sure, but southpaws give him fits. Over the past three years, Ethier posted an .892 OPS against right-handers and a .596 OPS against lefties.
