Dodgers | Andre Ethier demands to start

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 11:17:42 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier said he prefers to be traded if he doesn't have a starting outfield job this year. The team's current plans have OF Carl Crawford in left, rookie OF Joc Pederson in center and OF Yasiel Puig in right field, with Ethier as the fourth outfielder. Ethier hit .249 with four home runs and a .691 OPS in 331 at-bats last year, and his production has declined since 2012.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson isn't guaranteed the starting center field job, he'll have to earn it in camp by beating out Ethier. Regardless, Pederson is an up-and-coming prospect that will be taken in the middle rounds of mixed-league drafts, while Ethier is an afterthought. If Ethier is dealt before the start of the season, he could find some value as outfield depth if he lands in the right situation.
