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. Feb 24 - 3:59 PM

Roch Kubatko of 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.

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.

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.
