Andre Ethier crushed a solo home run in the Dodgers' loss to the Cubs Saturday in Game 1 of the NLCS.
Ethier only saw one at-bat on Saturday but he certainly made it count. Pinch-hitting for Kenta Maeda in the fourth inning, Ethier stepped in against Jon Lester and quickly took him deep for a home run. To be fair to Lester, Ethier got a ton of help from the wind. It looked like a lazy fly when Ethier hit it, but the ball kept carrying and somehow landed over the fence in left-center field. Despite struggling against lefties, Ethier is now 3-for-5 in his career against Jon Lester. He’ll continue to platoon with Yasiel Puig in right field. Oct 16 - 12:08 AM

Andre Ethier is on the Dodgers' NLDS roster.

Ethier finally made it back from a fractured fibula in mid-September, picking up five hits -- including a home run -- in 24 at-bats down the stretch. He figures to serve mainly as a pinch-hitter against the Nationals, as Andrew Toles is slated to start in left field in Game 1.
Oct 7 - 10:19 AM

Andre Ethier hit his first homer of the year off the bench Friday as the Dodgers beat the Rockies 5-2.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts chose to go with Andrew Toles over Ethier against a right-hander. Ethier needed a fast start in his return to the Dodgers in order to get penciled into left field with any regularity. Since it hasn't happened -- he's 3-for-17 -- he might find himself left out of the mix in the postseason. Showing he can be of use as a pinch-hitter, as he was tonight, will help his case.

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

Ethier has missed the entire season-to-date due to a fractured fibia but is ready to roll after a lengthy rehab stint. Due to the crowded outfield situation in Los Angeles, he'll probably be used as a part-time player against most right-handed pitching.
Sep 10 - 2:55 PM

Andre Ethier (leg) is headed to Miami to join the Dodgers and could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Friday.

Ethier had four hits -- including a home run -- over his last two rehab games and that was apparently enough to convince the Dodgers he was ready. The veteran split time between left and right field and the designated hitter spot on his rehab assignment and it remains to be seen how often he'd be able to play the outfield while coming back from a fractured tibia. However, he should get some playing time against right-handers.
Sep 9 - 4:19 PM

Andre Ethier (leg) worked out with his Dodgers teammates on Tuesday.

He'll return to High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Wednesday for the first game of their playoff series but could be activated by the Dodgers after that. Ethier is batting .290/.343/.419 with four doubles, zero homers, and three RBI over 35 plate appearances so far on his minor league rehab assignment.
Sep 6 - 8:08 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Monday that Andre Ethier (leg) is unlikely to be activated on September 1.

Ethier began a minor league rehab assignment last Thursday and is 4-for-10 (.400) with two doubles through his first three games with High-A Rancho Cucamonga. The veteran outfielder has been out all season with a fractured tibia, so he's be better-served with as many at-bats as possible in the minors before joining the major league roster.
Aug 29 - 7:58 PM

Andre Ethier (leg) will begin a minor league rehab assignment for High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Thursday.

Ethier participated in batting practice before Wednesday's game against the Giants and will now take the final step before making his return. The 34-year-old hasn't played yet this year after breaking his tibia during spring training. Ethier may require a lengthy rehab assignment after missing so much time. When Ethier finally returns to L.A. he'll join an outfield featuring Howie Kendrick, Joc Pederson and Josh Reddick.
Aug 25 - 6:00 PM

Andre Ethier (leg) took part in batting practice prior to Wednesday's game against the Giants.

Ethier wouldn't divulge how close he is to a rehab assignment, instead giving it the old "one day at a time" treatment. On Tuesday, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that the club expects Ethier to be able to return some time in the middle of September. The veteran outfielder has yet to play this season after fracturing his right tibia in spring training.
Aug 24 - 8:04 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he's expecting Andre Ethier (leg) to be ready for activation around mid-September.

Ethier will likely have to go through a lengthy rehab assignment first given that he's been out since March with a fractured tibia. The veteran outfielder began taking at-bats against live pitching this weekend at the Dodgers' spring training complex in Arizona and has reported no issues thus far.
Aug 23 - 7:39 PM

Andre Ethier (leg) has been taking at-bats against live pitching at the Dodgers' spring training complex.

Manager Dave Roberts also noted that Ethier is running at about 75 percent. The veteran outfielder's recovery from a fractured right tibia has come along very slowly, but it does appear he's starting to make some strides. Ethier will try to contribute in some kind of role next month.
Aug 21 - 11:23 AM

Andre Ethier (leg) took on-field batting practice for the first time Tuesday.

But he told reporters after the workout that he is still only running at about 50 percent effort. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts estimated earlier this month that Ethier could be activated around mid-August, but the veteran outfielder will have to clear some hurdles quickly in order to make that happen.
Jul 26 - 7:07 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Friday that Andre Ethier's return is now estimated around mid-August.

Ethier, who suffered a fractured right tibia back in March, was scheduled for a follow-up scan on Friday to get a read on his progress. The results aren't yet known, but he could get cleared to ramp up activities soon. Either way, he's still at least a month away.
Jul 15 - 7:48 PM

Andre Ethier (leg) was scheduled for a scan on Thursday.

It's been over three months since Ethier fractured his tibia. If his tests come back clean, the Dodgers will begin to ramp up his rehab activities. Ethier advanced to light jogging earlier this month and is hoping to resume hitting soon.
Jul 14 - 9:42 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that Andre Ethier (leg) could return around August 2.

Ethier is already doing light jogging and should soon begin taking batting practice. He has been on the disabled list all season after fracturing his tibia in a spring training game. Look for the veteran outfielder to embark on a two-week rehab assignment soon after the All-Star break.
