Dodgers | Andre Ethier has 10-5 rights

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 13:52:50 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier has officially earned 10-and-5 status and cannot be traded without his consent.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier was a popular trade topic this offseason, but he proved difficult to move because of his contract. A trade is even less likely now. Ethier fractured his leg late in spring training and was scheduled to miss 10 to 14 weeks. Leave him to the waiver wire in standard mixed leagues. He might be worth stashing in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, since he could have a significant role in the outfield when he's healthy.

Dodgers | LA Dodgers send several players to DL

Sun, 03 Apr 2016 13:13:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (leg) was among a number of players placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, April 3. Joining him were SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder), SP Brandon McCarthy (elbow), 2B Howie Kendrick (calf), INF Alex Guerrero (knee), C Yasmani Grandal (forearm), SP Brett Anderson (back), SP Mike Bolsinger (oblique) and RP Josh Ravin (wrist).

Fantasy Tip: Los Angeles' pitching depth figures to be tested right off the bat, as Ryi is expected to be out another month while McCarthy and Anderson may not return until the second half. Ethier's absence should make Carl Crawford a full-time player again until around June, making the ex-Tampa Bay Ray standout a fine under-the-radar fantasy option. The other notable name here is Grandal, who should be a serviceable catcher in fantasy if he is healthy. He is expected back in mid-April.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier unable to bear weight

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 14:43:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (leg) will not be able to put weight on his leg for six weeks. Ethier is out 10 to 14 weeks with a broken leg.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough break for Ethier, but he could return later this season to help fantasy owners in deep mixed leagues. Until then, some combination of Scott Van Slyke and Carl Crawford will likely platoon in left field for the Blue. Crawford will have the strong end of the platoon, but his decline across the board makes him more of a daily and NL-only commodity.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier has broken leg

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 14:30:42 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (leg) was diagnosed with a right tibia fracture after he fouled a ball off his shin last Friday. He'll miss 10 to 14 weeks, but he will not need surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Tough news for Ethier, who was setting up for a bounce-back season in a possible platoon role. This news opens up the most playing time for Carl Crawford most likely, and he could be part of a platoon with Scott Van Slyke or Kike Hernandez. Look for Trayce Thompson to be a valuable bench option, as well. Crawford is on the decline, though, and injuries continue to hamper him. Because of that and a likely platoon role, he's mainly limited to NL-only and daily formats.

Dodgers | Awaiting word on Andre Ethier

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 20:59:46 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (shin) had a bone scan on his right shin Monday, March 21, but the results will not be available until Tuesday, March 22.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier could be in jeopardy of missing time into the regular season, but an official timetable likely won't be available until Tuesday afternoon at the earliest. Scott Van Slyke could benefit the most if Ethier is forced to the shelf.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier to have bone scan

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 10:47:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (shin) will have a bone scan Monday, March 21, three days after fouling a pitch off of his shin. Ethier remains on crutches.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown at this point how much time Ethier will miss or if he's a candidate to open on the DL. Stay tuned. Any missed time could open up more opportunities for Carl Crawford, Alex Guerrero or Trayce Thompson. Ethier is worth a pick in the later rounds and can be an excellent value play in daily games against righties.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier still on crutches

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 07:49:45 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (shin) is still on crutches Monday, March 21.

Fantasy Tip: We're two weeks away from the start of the season, and Ethier was expected to play quite a bit. Keep an eye on his progress, but he'll be an option for your OF5 spot.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier should be ready

Sat, 19 Mar 2016 10:34:36 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (knee) should be good to go for opening day, according to manager Dave Roberts.

Fantasy Tip: Don't be too scared off of Ethier just yet. He's expected to be the Dodgers' primary left fielder, but don't be surprised if he sees more action versus right-handed pitchers throughout the season. Don't regard him as starting material in mixed leagues, though.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier day-to-day

Fri, 18 Mar 2016 19:35:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (knee) is considered day-to-day after suffering a right knee injury during a Cactus League game Friday, March 18. He sustained the injury after fouling a ball off during an at-bat and X-rays came back negative.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier is slated to be the team's starting left fielder and could be used as a leadoff hitter versus right-handed pitching but is best suited for NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. He hit .294 with 14 homers and 53 RBIs in 395 at-bats in 2015.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier exits early

Fri, 18 Mar 2016 14:54:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (shin) fouled a ball off his shin and exited the Cactus League game Friday, March 18.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier will fight for at-bats in a potentially crowded outfield. He posted an impressive .900 OPS with 18 doubles, seven triples and 14 home runs against right-handed pitchers in 2015, though, so he should find starts against righties. Stay tuned for updates, but limit your Ethier exposure to deep mixed leagues and NL-only formats.
