Andre Ethier went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a three-run home run Monday as the Dodgers easily handled the Diamondbacks.

Ethier knocked in a run with a single in the middle of the Dodgers' five-run fourth inning. He then put the game out of reach with a three-run home run off of Rubby De La Rosa in the fifth. Ethier had cooled off as of late, entering Monday's contest with only two hits in his last 20 at-bats. Nevertheless, he maintains a productive .287/.372/.512 triple-slash line with eight home runs and 26 RBI.

Andre Ethier is out of the Dodgers' lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

The hot-hitting Ethier will take a seat with left-hander Jorge De La Rosa on the hill for the Rockies. The newly-recalled Chris Heisey will start in right field while Alex Guerrero plays left. Ethier should play in Game 2 of the doubleheader.
Jun 2 - 12:08 PM

Andre Ethier tripled and hit a solo home run in six at-bats Monday as the Dodgers took down the Rockies.

Ethier started the scoring with a solo home run off of Kyle Kendrick in the second inning. He tripled and scored in the sixth as well. While we're inclined to discredit the performance since it was against Kyle Kendrick at Coors Field, it's not like Ethier hasn't been doing it all year. He's hitting .309/.395/.551 with seven home runs and 20 RBI.

Andre Ethier is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Braves.

With lefty Alex Wood on the hill for the Braves, it appears manager Don Mattingly is simply playing the matchups. Chris Heisey started in right field for the Dodgers.
May 27 - 6:23 PM

Andre Ethier broke a 2-2 tie in the eighth inning with a solo home run, helping lead the Dodgers past the Braves on Monday.

Ethier started what turned out to be an avalanche of home runs, as Alex Guerrero and Jimmy Rollins followed up with round-trippers of their own. Ethier finished 2-for-3 with a walk on the evening. He has cooled off over the last couple of weeks, but still maintains a stellar .313/.407/.548 triple-slash line with six home runs and 17 RBI.
May 25 - 11:05 PM

Andre Ethier's 5-for-5 performance helped the Dodgers trample the Marlins in Tuesday's win.

Ethier has had two other five-hit games, occurring on September 5, 2008 and May 19, 2006. Four of his hits in Tuesday's affair were singles; the other was a solo home run off of Dan Haren, which broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth inning. Ethier has been remarkably productive, batting .329/.423/.598 with five home runs and 13 RBI, but 83 of his 97 plate appearances have come against right-handed pitching. The veteran was on the outside looking in before the season, but it'll be difficult for the Dodgers to keep him out of the lineup with the way he's been hitting.
May 13 - 1:31 AM

Andre Ethier cracked a two-run homer in Wednesday's win over the Giants.

He finished 1-for-4. Ethier entered this season as a fourth-OF-afterthought, but he's got everyone's attention now. The veteran is slashing .304/.400/.587 and isn't going to come out of the lineup anytime soon with Yasiel Puig and Carl Crawford hurting. It's time for mixed leaguers to get involved here.
Apr 30 - 1:35 AM

Filling in for Yasiel Puig, Andre Ethier went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double and a walk to lead the Dodgers to an 11-8 win over the Padres on Friday.

Ethier was making his first start in six days, but the lack of activity hasn't hurt him so far; he's hit .353 with a couple of homers in 34 at-bats. He'll probably have some value in mixed leagues if Puig lands on the disabled list because of his hamstring.
Apr 26 - 12:38 AM

Andre Ethier went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win versus the Mariners.

Ethier took Hisashi Iwakuma out to right field in the sixth inning to bring the Dodgers back to within 5-4 at the time. It was only his third start of the season but that figures to be the case over the course of the season as he's fourth on the outfield depth chart behind Yasiel Puig, Joc Pederson, and Carl Crawford. The Dodgers will try to trade Ethier throughout the season as well.
Apr 15 - 2:04 AM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that he's "hopeful" Andre Ethier (elbow) will return to action Friday.

Ethier was hit on the right elbow by a pitch during Tuesday's game. The club was hoping he'd be ready to go Thursday, but obviously that's not the case. He's in no danger at this point of being unavailable for Opening Day.
Apr 2 - 8:28 PM

X-rays on Andre Ethier's right elbow showed no fracture.

Ethier was plunked during Tuesday's game but has managed to avoid a serious injury. He could return to game action as soon as Thursday.
Mar 31 - 6:05 PM

Andre Ethier was pulled from Tuesday's Cactus League game after getting hit by a pitch on his arm.

The ball got him near his right wrist and he looked to be in a good amount of pain. Ethier was sent for X-rays and there should be an update out of Dodgers camp within the next hour.
Mar 31 - 4:43 PM

Andre Ethier went 1-for-2 with a walk and a two-run home run in Saturday's Cactus League match-up with the Rockies.

Ethier put the Dodgers up early, driving a Jhoulys Chacin offering over the fence in right-center. It was only the third extra-base hit of the spring for Ethier, who is heading into the season as a reserve outfielder for the Dodgers. The Dodgers are reportedly willing to cover "about half" of his remaining $56 million salary over the next three seasons, so there is a chance he could be traded at some point during the spring or summer.
Mar 21 - 7:13 PM

The Dodgers are offering to pay off "about half" of Andre Ethier's remaining contract in order to trade him, a source tells Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

Ethier is due $56 million over the next three years, so the team is offering to pay roughly $28 million to get a deal done. Of course, the more the team pays, the more it will want in return in a trade. With Yasiel Puig, Carl Crawford and youngster Joc Pederson likely occupying the three starting outfield spots Ethier is expendable, and he's said he would like to be dealt if he isn't a starter. What team would be willing to take on Ethier as a starter, for whatever his contract may be, is still unclear. Perhaps the picture will become clearer as spring moves forward.
