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.
Mar 25 - 8:02 PM

Andre Ethier (back) is expected to receive a prognosis from his doctors on Saturday.

The veteran outfielder continues to battle a multitude of ailments and can't seem to get healthy. At this point, it's hard to count on him for much heading into 2017 as even when he gets on the field he'll be facing stiff competition for at-bats in the outfield.
Mar 25 - 12:52 PM

Andre Ethier underwent X-rays and a CT scan on his ailing back Tuesday.

Ethier also received an epidural injection and told reporters Thursday that he felt immediate pain relief afterward. He's still awaiting the full results of Tuesday's exam. The veteran outfielder looks questionable for the beginning of the 2017 regular season, but there is nothing official yet.
Mar 23 - 2:41 PM

Andre Ethier was diagnosed with a mild herniation of a disk in his back.

Ethier recently dealt with a hip issue, but he was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to tightness in his back. He received an epidural on Monday and will be shut down for 7-10 days. There's no clear timetable for his return, but it's believed to not be as serious as what staff ace Clayton Kershaw dealt with last year. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts hasn't ruled him out for Opening Day quite yet, but it looks unrealistic at this point.
Mar 21 - 12:55 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Monday that Andre Ethier (hip) probably won't play for several days even if his MRI came back clean.

Ethier underwent an MRI on Monday for his nagging hip/back injury, but the results aren't in yet. He's looking iffy for Opening Day even if the exam doesn't reveal anything serious.
Mar 20 - 7:42 PM

Andre Ethier is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his back Monday.

Ethier was scratched from the Dodgers' Cactus League lineup on Sunday due to back tightness, after missing nearly two weeks with a nagging hip issue. He said he's not concerned about this new back injury, but the veteran outfielder makes for a very iffy fantasy bet in 2017 after logging just 26 total plate appearances at the major league level last year.
Mar 20 - 11:18 AM

Andre Ethier was scratched from the Dodgers' Cactus League lineup due to tightness in his back.

The severity of the injury is unclear, but he's heading for an MRI in the next day or two. At this point, his status for the start of the regular season is up in the air.
Mar 19 - 7:47 PM

Andre Ethier (hip) has returned to the Dodgers' Cactus League lineup on Saturday.

It's the first time he has played since March 6 due to a nagging hip issue. He's expected to begin the season in a platoon role, finding at-bats in both corner outfield spots against right-handed pitching.
Mar 18 - 12:26 PM

Andre Ethier (hip) will return to Cactus League action on Friday.

He's set to play in one of the Dodgers' split-squad games after making it through a full workout on Thursday. Ethier has been sidelined with a hip injury since March 6. The long-time Dodger will open the year as a bench player behind starters Joc Pederson, Yasiel Puig and Andrew Toles.
