    Player Outlook

    A fractured tibia suffered in spring training resulted in Andre Ethier spending most of his time during the 2016 season rehabbing at the Dodgers' facility in Arizona. He managed to make it back in September and appear in 16 regular season games plus the playoffs, but he wasn't at 100 percent and appeared in most games as a pinch hitter. Last year will go down as a lost season for the veteran, but he could be a decent bounce-back candidate if he returns to full health in 2017. He remains basically a platoon player, making 422 plate appearances against right-handers between 2015 and 2016 and just 49 facing southpaws, but that has buoyed his rate numbers in recent years. As long as Ethier is healthy, he's likely to get the majority of starts in left field, but with regular days off against left-handers. It's also worth noting the Dodgers considered using him as a leadoff hitter before his injury.

    Player News
    • Ethier (back) will not resume baseball activities until the first week of April, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports. The soon-to-be 35-year-old might be the odd-man out when the regular season begins, as L.A. has a glut of outfielders. He isn't a bad stash option, especially in NL-only formats, as he still has plenty of power. However, expect his season to get off to a rather slow go.

    • Dodgers' Andre Ethier: Set for doctor visit
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ethier (back) will visit with a doctor Friday or Saturday, Ken Gurnick of reports. The veteran likely will land on the disabled list as the season begins. Ethier, who turns 35 in April, could be worth a cheap stash in fantasy leagues, but the Dodgers' large collection of outfielders allows them to take their time working him back into the fold.

    • Dodgers' Andre Ethier: Shut down for 7-10 days
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ethier (back) has been diagnosed with a mild herniated disk and will be shut down for 7-10 days,'s Ken Gurnick reports. While manager Dave Roberts said the injury is not as severe as the herniated disk Clayton Kershaw dealt with last year, he added that it would be "tough" for Ethier to be ready for Opening Day, AM 570's David Vassegh reports. It is unlikely that he will be able to get right back into game action when he is declared ready for baseball activity, so a DL stint to start the season seems likely.

    • Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Ethier (back) is unlikely to play for several days, even if his MRI comes back clean, Ken Gurnick of reports. While this approach may be one where the Dodgers are simply being extra cautious with the veteran outfielder, Yasiel Puig is missing time with a calf injury this week, leaving the Dodgers a bit thinner at the position than expected. Ethier has gone 6-for-12 with a homer, two RBI, and six walks through eight games this spring.

    • Dodgers' Andre Ethier: Set for tests Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ethier is scheduled to have an MRI on his back Monday, Ken Gurnick of reports. The tests are simply precautionary for Ethier, who was been dealing with tightness in his lower back for a few weeks now. He said that if it were the regular season, he would be able to find a way to play through the back stiffness. It doesn't seem overly serious, but it will be a situation to monitor; he should be considered day-to-day in the meantime.
