    Description: The Dodgers are willing to pay half of outfielder Andre Ethier's salary in order to trade him this spring according to CBS Sports.
    Insight: Ethier is due $56 million over the next three years, so Los Angeles is offering to pay about $28 million of that. Matt Kemp left in free agency over the winter, but with youngster Joc Pederson expected to play center field, the Dogers still have the problem of too many outfielders. Time will tell if Ethier gains any interest from other clubs.
     
    10/7/2014 2:38:00 PM
    Description: Los Angeles outfielder Andre Ethier will get a start in Game 4. He'll bat sixth and play center field.
    Insight: Ehtier is 2-for-6 with a home run against Cardinals right-hander Shelby Miller. Yasiel Puig (3-for-12) will take a seat.
     
    8/19/2014 11:32:00 AM
    Description: Los Angeles center fielder Andre Ethier is hitting a career .324 against San Diego starter Ian Kennedy.
    Insight: Ehtier has had to battle to get playing time this season, but it would be wise for Don Mattingly to play Ethier tonight.
     
    6/29/2014 7:06:00 PM
    Description: Los Angeles center fielder Andre Ethier hit his first homer since May 27 Sunday against St. Louis.
    Insight: Ethier was once a 30-homer bat and had at least 20 four times. However, he has four homers this season to go with a .248 average and a .666 OPS. He's not a fantasy option, even in NL-only formats.
     
    Cold6/27/2014 8:28:00 PM
    Description: Los Angeles center fielder Andre Ethier is taking the night off Friday against St. Louis. SOURCE: Ken Gurnick, MLB.com
    Insight: He's out with a swollen knee. Tonight's lineup will feature Scott Van Slyke (.271, 6 HR, 11 RBI) in center field with Yasiel Puig (.309, 11 HR, 45 RBI) in right and Matt Kemp (.267, 8 HR, 29 RBI) in left.
     
    Cold6/24/2014 6:50:00 PM
    Description: Dodgers center fielder Andre Ethier won't be in action Tuesday against the Royals. SOURCE: Eric Stephen, SB Nation
    Insight: Ethier (.244, 3 HR, 26 RBI) is just one for his last 15. Scott Van Slyke (.278, 6 HR, 11 RBI) is filling in at center field.
     
    Cold6/22/2014 11:14:00 AM
    Description: Los Angeles center fielder Andre Ethier has done poorly in his career against Padres starter Eric Stults.
    Insight: Stults hasn't fooled many hitters this season (2-9, 5.76 ERA) but for some reason, he's always given Ethier trouble (2-for-15, 2 K's). Ethier hasn't had a good series, going hitless in eight at bats.
     
    6/17/2014 10:33:00 AM
    Description: Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier is 12-for-29 (.414) with four extra base hits and a 1.185 OPS against Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin.
    Insight: Ethier (.258, 3 HR, 26 RBI) has hit safely in eight of his past nine games and should be in Tuesday's lineup.
     
    6/10/2014 2:38:00 PM
    Description: Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier is 5-for-12 (.417) with a pair of home runs against Reds right-hander Mike Leake.
    Insight: Ethier (.251, 3 HR, 25 RBI) hasn't played since Saturday. Not coincidently that was the day he made a bad effort on a 10th inning game-winning fly ball. Update: Ethier is in the starting lineup batting sixth and playing in center field.
     
    6/10/2014 9:58:00 AM
    Description: Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier is 5-for-12 (.417) with a pair of home runs against Reds right-hander Mike Leake.
    Insight: Ethier (.251, 3 HR, 25 RBI) hasn't played since Saturday. Not coincidently that was the day he made a bad effort on a 10th inning game-winning fly ball.
     
    5/28/2014 10:53:00 AM
    Description: Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier is 0-for-18 with six strikeouts in his career against Reds starter Homer Bailey.
    Insight: Ethier went 2-for-4 with a triple, a homer, four RBI and two runs Tuesday and has started the past five games due to Matt Kemp's benching, but he isn't a good fantasy option overall and especially shouldn't be used Wednesday.
     
    5/28/2014 9:38:00 AM
    Description: Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier had a triple, a homer and four RBI Tuesday against the Reds.
    Insight: The Dodgers are unhappy with Matt Kemp's defense in center field and haven't started him the last five games. Ethier started all of them and is hitting .277 with three home runs, 25 RBI and a .747 OPS.
     
    5/10/2014 10:25:00 AM
    Description: Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier is a stunning .429 hitter in 70 at-bats against Giants right-hander Matt Cain.
    Insight: Ethier is batting just .248 with two homers and 16 RBI. He's simply not the hitter he once was and all his numbers are trending downward, but this is a nice matchup.
     
    5/9/2014 6:55:00 PM
    Description: Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup Friday night against the Giants.
    Insight: Ethier has managed only three hits off Madison Bumgarner in 24 at bats (.125 AVG). Lefties in general have been giving Ethier trouble as he has just two hits in 16 at bats against them this season. Carl Crawford (2-17 against LHP) is also sitting out Friday.
     
    5/9/2014 12:33:00 PM
    Description: Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier is still lost when it comes to hitting against Giants starter Madison Bumgarner.
    Insight: Ethier has managed only three hits off Bumgarner in 24 at bats (.125 AVG). Lefties in general have been giving Ethier trouble as he has just two hits in 16 at bats against them this season. Obviously, Friday isn't a good day to start Ethier (.248, 2 HR, 16 RBI) in any fantasy leagues.
     
    5/8/2014 7:01:00 PM
    Description: Los Angeles outfielder Andre Ethier is getting the night off Thursday against San Francisco. SOURCE: Eric Stephen, SB Nation
    Insight: With Carl Crawford, Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig all healthy, it's going to be tough for Ethier to see regular at bats. His .248 batting average through 101 at bats isn't helping his case.
     
    4/27/2014 11:37:00 AM
    Description: Los Angeles outfielder Andre Ethier won't be an appealing fantasy option Sunday against Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa.
    Insight: That's because Ethier is hitting just .158 in 19 at bats against the left-hander. As a general rule of thumb, Ethier is always a poor play against lefties. It would make sense for the Dodgers to sit him on Sunday but unfortunately, the alternative in left field would be Carl Crawford, who is also left-handed. We'll see how manager Don Mattingly fills out his lineup card in a few hours.
     
    4/22/2014 6:21:00 PM
    Description: Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier will take a seat Tuesday against the Phillies, according to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times.
    Insight: Ethier (.220, 2 HR, 13 RBI) wasn't in Monday's lineup with lefty Cliff Lee on the mound and he won't start against right-hander A.J. Burnett either.
     
    4/19/2014 9:17:00 AM
    Description: Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier went 1-for-4 with a homer and three RBI Saturday against Arizona.
    Insight: Ethier has 13 RBI this season but he's batting just .214 with a .596 OPS. The two homers are his only extra-base hits.
     
    4/8/2014 1:45:00 PM
    Description: Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier has a .400 average and one homer in his matchups against Detroit ace Max Scherzer.
    Insight: Ethier should be in the lineup with Yasiel Puig still dealing with the thumb injury. He's batting .280 through the first eight games, though without much power (one extra base hit).
