Andre Ethier went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win versus the Mariners.
Ethier took Hisashi Iwakuma out to right field in the sixth inning to bring the Dodgers back to within 5-4 at the time. It was only his third start of the season but that figures to be the case over the course of the season as he's fourth on the outfield depth chart behind Yasiel Puig, Joc Pederson, and Carl Crawford. The Dodgers will try to trade Ethier throughout the season as well. Apr 15 - 2:04 AM

Date:

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that he's "hopeful" Andre Ethier (elbow) will return to action Friday.

Ethier was hit on the right elbow by a pitch during Tuesday's game. The club was hoping he'd be ready to go Thursday, but obviously that's not the case. He's in no danger at this point of being unavailable for Opening Day.

X-rays on Andre Ethier's right elbow showed no fracture.

Ethier was plunked during Tuesday's game but has managed to avoid a serious injury. He could return to game action as soon as Thursday.
Mar 31 - 6:05 PM

Andre Ethier was pulled from Tuesday's Cactus League game after getting hit by a pitch on his arm.

The ball got him near his right wrist and he looked to be in a good amount of pain. Ethier was sent for X-rays and there should be an update out of Dodgers camp within the next hour.

Andre Ethier went 1-for-2 with a walk and a two-run home run in Saturday's Cactus League match-up with the Rockies.

Ethier put the Dodgers up early, driving a Jhoulys Chacin offering over the fence in right-center. It was only the third extra-base hit of the spring for Ethier, who is heading into the season as a reserve outfielder for the Dodgers. The Dodgers are reportedly willing to cover "about half" of his remaining $56 million salary over the next three seasons, so there is a chance he could be traded at some point during the spring or summer.

The Dodgers are offering to pay off "about half" of Andre Ethier's remaining contract in order to trade him, a source tells Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

Ethier is due $56 million over the next three years, so the team is offering to pay roughly $28 million to get a deal done. Of course, the more the team pays, the more it will want in return in a trade. With Yasiel Puig, Carl Crawford and youngster Joc Pederson likely occupying the three starting outfield spots Ethier is expendable, and he's said he would like to be dealt if he isn't a starter. What team would be willing to take on Ethier as a starter, for whatever his contract may be, is still unclear. Perhaps the picture will become clearer as spring moves forward.
Mar 4 - 11:20 PM

Andre Ethier said Tuesday that he would prefer to be traded if there isn't an everyday job for him on the Dodgers.

The Dodgers tentatively project to have Carl Crawford in left field, Joc Pederson in center, and Yasiel Puig in right, so Ethier realizes that a change of scenery would be the best thing for him. "You're not wishing for it ever to end, but sometimes that opportunity takes you somewhere else," said Ethier. "I'm not going to do anything to sit here and force it. Hopefully it works itself out." Ethier is owed $53.5 million over the next three years with a $17.5 vesting option for 2018, so a trade is easier said than done.

Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports that the Orioles "have engaged in trade talks" with the Dodgers regarding Andre Ethier.

Ethier regressed big time at the plate last season and is owed $53.5 million over the next three years with a $17.5 vesting option for 2018. So while there have been talks, Kubatko thinks it's unlikely a deal would go down. The Orioles are also in on Nori Aoki and Colby Rasmus, with the latter seen as the likeliest target. Manager Buck Showalter met with Rasmus on Saturday.

The Dodgers and Diamondbacks discussed swapping Andre Ethier for Miguel Montero before D'backs ownership vetoed the trade, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

The deal would have also included Tim Federowicz going to the D'backs and a couple low-level prospects heading to the Dodgers, Rosenthal said, but ownership didn't give it the go-ahead. It would have been interesting for the fact that Ethier is known to want out of LA and a trade within the division would mean Ethier would see his former club a whole lot. Even though the deal appears unlikely, both Ethier and Montero could have new homes before the start of the 2015 season.

Andre Ethier has told the Dodgers that he wants to be traded if he's not going to start.

Well, he's not going to start, so that should tell you where this is headed. Ethier made just 78 starts last season and was accepting of a reduced role, but he said he won't be so receptive to the idea next season. "As I stand here today, I’m preparing every day to be a starting outfielder for the Dodgers, until I’m told otherwise," he said. "I’m not changing my mind about that. It’s probably going to be a little less wanting to take the same role as I did last year." It's debatable whether Ethier is even a starting-level outfielder anymore, and he still has $56 million remaining on his contract. The Dodgers are going to have to eat most of that in order to move him.

Rival evaluators have told ESPN's Buster Olney that they believe Andre Ethier is "by far" the most likely Dodgers outfielder to be traded.

Olney notes that the Dodgers "will weigh their options" with all of their outfielders, but it's no surprise that they appear most anxious to get rid of Ethier. The 32-year-old's playing time and production bottomed out in 2014, as he batted just .249/.322/.370 with four homers while making only 78 starts. The Dodgers will have to pick up most of the $56 million remaining on Ethier's contract in order to move him.

Andre Ethier has started just three games since July 22.

Yasiel Puig has settled in in center field and the Dodgers have elected to go with Carl Crawford in left and Matt Kemp in right most nights, leaving Ethier on the bench. Given Ethier's .247/.311/.368 batting line with just four homers this season, he certainly hasn't done anything to warrant more playing time.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp, Carl Crawford, and Josh Beckett have cleared revocable waivers.

Meanwhile, Hanley Ramirez was claimed and pulled back by the Dodgers. This ultimately doesn't mean much, as most players are placed on revocable waivers in August. Still, since Ethier, Kemp, Crawford, and Beckett all cleared, the Dodgers could hypothetically discuss trades involving them with any team.

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.

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.
