Updating a previous item, the Dodgers announced late Monday that Andre Ethier (leg) will not have a bone scan on Thursday.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said earlier in the day that Ethier was going for the bone scan, but the team is now saying that the scan won't happen until he's ready for live batting practice. It's unclear when that will happen, so a possible return date remains up in the air. Jun 13 - 11:51 PM

Date:

Andre Ethier will undergo a bone scan on Thursday to see if the fracture in his right leg has healed.

Ethier fractured his tibia when he fouled a ball off his shin during a spring training game in March. Even if he gets good news on Thursday, he's still a ways off from game action.
Jun 13 - 7:59 PM

Andre Ethier (leg) still hasn't been cleared to begin baseball-related activities.

Ethier was given a 10-14 week recovery timetable when he fractured his right tibia in March, but that can be trashed now. The veteran outfielder would have to hustle to make it back before the All-Star break.
May 31 - 5:43 PM

Andre Ethier will have his fractured right tibia re-examined on Friday to check the healing progress.

Ethier was injured six weeks ago when he fouled a ball off his shin during a spring training game. He's still using crutches to get around and isn't expected back until June.
Apr 29 - 11:53 AM

Dodgers transferred OF Andre Ethier from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The Dodgers needed to clear a couple 40-man roster spots for the additions of James Ramsey and Zach Walters. Ethier is out until June with a fractured right tibia.
Apr 10 - 2:05 PM

Dodgers placed OF Andre Ethier on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right tibia.

He'll be sidelined until June. Carl Crawford will handle most of the playing time in left field while Ethier is out.
Apr 3 - 12:54 PM

Andre Ethier won't be able to put weight on his leg for six weeks.

Ethier fouled a ball off his leg last week, resulting in a fractured right tibia. He was given a 10-14 week recovery timetable, meaning he'll miss most or all of the first half. Carl Crawford and Scott Van Slyke will handle left field during his absence. Neither carries much fantasy relevance.
Mar 24 - 6:35 PM

Andre Ethier will be sidelined for 10-14 weeks after a bone scan revealed a fractured right tibia.

Initial X-rays came back negative, but a subsequent exam showed the fracture. The timeline suggests that Ethier will miss at least the first two months of the season. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that Carl Crawford and Scott Van Slyke would platoon in left field while Ethier is out. Enrique Hernandez, Trayce Thompson and Alex Guerrero will be in the mix, as well.
Mar 22 - 5:28 PM

Andre Ethier had a bone scan done on his troublesome right shin, but results won't be available until Tuesday.

Ethier bounced back last season with a .294 batting average and 14 home runs, but his recent shin injury has suddenly put his status into question for Opening Day. He'll be shielded from facing lefties for the second-consecutive season. At 33 years old, though, the most pressing question is increasingly his health.
Mar 21 - 10:05 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts admitted Monday that he's concerned about Andre Ethier's leg injury.

Ethier has been sidelined since he fouled a ball off his right leg on Friday. X-rays came back negative over the weekend, but he showed up to Dodgers' camp on Monday on crutches and was sent for a bone scan. The results aren't yet known, but the lack of improvement is a concern.
Mar 21 - 7:19 PM

Andre Ethier will have a bone scan on his leg Monday.

Ethier is still on crutches three days after fouling a ball off his shin in a Cactus League game. X-rays were taken over the weekend and turned up negative. It's probably just a bad bruise, but that still might affect his readiness for the opening week of the 2016 regular season. Stay tuned. Carl Crawford is Ethier's backup in left field for the Dodgers.
Mar 21 - 1:49 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Saturday that he fully expects Andre Ethier (leg) to be ready for Opening Day.

Ethier fouled a pitch off of his leg during Friday's Cactus League game but wound up with nothing more than a contusion from it. He'll be in left field when the Dodgers open up regular season play.
Mar 19 - 1:40 PM

Andre Ethier (leg) is considered day-to-day after his X-rays came back negative on Friday.

Ethier fouled a pitch off of his leg during Friday's Cactus League game. Fortunately, he was able to avoid any type of serious injury and should be back on the field in a day or two.
Mar 18 - 10:05 PM

Andre Ethier was removed from Friday's Cactus League contest after fouling a ball off of his leg.

He was able to walk off the field, albeit gingerly, with the assistance of team trainers and was transported to the clubhouse on a golf cart. Expect an update on his status from the Dodgers shortly.
Mar 18 - 6:54 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that he could use Andre Ethier out of the leadoff spot against certain right-handers.

Roberts' justification is that Ethier "gets on base," and that would be accurate. The 33-year-old owns a .359 career on-base percentage, including a .383 clip against right-handers. At the very least, the veteran outfielder provides an alternative if Joc Pederson struggles. Ethier is batting leadoff in Wednesday's Cactus League game.
