Pinch-hitter Andre Ethier homered off Ricardo Pinto in the seventh to help the Dodgers edge the Phillies 5-4 on Thursday.
Ethier's homer tied the game, and the Dodgers went ahead in the same frame after Cody Bellinger knocked in Chris Taylor on a groundout. Ethier is 8-for-25 with two homers and a double since making his season debut on Sept. 1. If he keeps it up, he'll have an interesting case for a bench spot in October. He'd probably be more useful than Adrian Gonzalez, not that the Dodgers are necessarily going to carry either. Sep 21 - 5:50 PM

Date:

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts indicated Thursday that he thinks Andre Ethier is incapable physically of being a regular player versus righties down the stretch.

Ethier has barely played the last two seasons due to injury, but he's suddenly back on the radar with Curtis Granderson and Joc Pederson struggling. However, while Ethier on Friday will get his fourth start in 15 games this month, it doesn't sound like he'll be more than a part-time player in the final weeks.
Sep 15 - 1:36 PM

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

Ethier has missed the entire season thus far due to back and neck injuries. The 35-year-old still has some pop remaining in his bat and should be a useful left-handed bat off the bench over the final month of the regular season.
Sep 1 - 6:15 PM

Andre Ethier (back) is dealing with minor neck soreness.

But this neck issue is not expected to keep Ethier from being activated from the disabled list when rosters expand on Friday. To date, the veteran outfielder has played in 10 minor league rehab games while on the mend from a herniated disc in his back which has kept him on the shelf for the entire 2017 season.
Aug 30 - 7:38 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Andre Ethier (back) will be activated on Friday.

Ethier has played in 10 minor league rehab games, batting .219/.306/.281 over 36 plate appearances. The veteran outfielder will operate as a bench bat for Los Angeles down the stretch and will likely struggle to find regular opportunities in that role given the presence of left-handed hitters Curtis Granderson and Adrian Gonzalez. Ethier has been sidelined all season due to a herniated disc.
Aug 30 - 10:01 AM

Andre Ethier (back) went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts and a walk Wednesday in his third rehab game with High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

The promising news is he was able to play six innings in left field without his back flaring up. Ethier will likely join the Dodgers when rosters expand in September, assuming he can avoid further setbacks. The veteran outfielder has been sidelined all season.
Aug 17 - 8:46 AM

Andre Ethier (back) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga in the coming days.

While Ethier is nearing a rehab assignment, nothing in his timetable has changed. The Dodgers do not expect to activate him from the disabled list until roster expand at the beginning of September. The veteran outfielder has yet to play in a game this season.
Aug 9 - 7:40 PM

Dodgers' skipper Dave Roberts said Friday that he doesn't expect Andre Ethier (back) to rejoin the club until after rosters expand in September.

Ethier has yet to make his season debut due to a lingering back issue. He should't be on any fantasy rosters at this point.
Jul 21 - 7:37 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts set the over/under for the return of Andre Ethier (back) at September 1.

Ethier has not played in a game this season due to a lingering back injury. His tentative return date has been pushed back several times -- the Dodgers were initially hoping to get him back in mid-June, then around the All-Star Break and now it is looking like he might not be ready until the season is winding down. A more concrete timetable should clarify over the coming months.
Jun 21 - 7:38 PM

Andre Ethier (back) has yet to be cleared to resume baseball activities.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that the team does not expect Etheir to return until some time after the All-Star break. There had been some hope in early May that he might be able to return at some point in June, but that was clearly overly optimistic. The veteran outfielder has yet to play in a game this season due to a lingering back concern.
May 31 - 6:32 PM

Dodgers transferred OF Andre Ethier from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for the newly-claimed Justin Marks on the 40-man roster. Ethier is dealing with a back injury and isn't expected to be an option for the Dodgers until June, so this doesn't impact his timetable.
May 9 - 3:36 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he doesn't expect Andre Ethier (back) to return before June.

Ethier still hasn't been cleared for baseball activities and will basically need to complete spring training all over again before the Dodgers activate him. The veteran outfielder appeared in just 16 games last season because of a fractured tibia, and he's currently working through a lingering back issue.
Apr 27 - 2:17 PM

Andre Ethier (back) has not yet been cleared for baseball activities.

Ethier was placed on the disabled list with back soreness this past weekend. Manager Dave Roberts said that he continues to experience "normal soreness." Roberts also said that the veteran outfielder is "a ways out" from returning. Once he is cleared to take part in baseball activities, a more concrete timetable figures to be established.
Apr 5 - 7:23 PM

Dodgers placed OF Andre Ethier on the 10-day disabled list with a back injury.

It's an injury that Ethier has dealt with for a while, although it's not expected to be a long-term thing. Andrew Toles will cover left field while Ethier is out.
Apr 2 - 12:59 PM

Andre Ethier (back) won't resume baseball activities until the first week of April.

The decision was made after Ethier met with a back specialist on Saturday. Ethier will obviously open the year on the disabled list but manager Dave Roberts said he doesn't anticipate the injury being a "6-8 week thing." The injury-prone Ethier was limited to just 16 games last season and is now facing another extended absence.
