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.

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.
Jul 6 - 1:20 PM

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

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.
