The Los Angeles Dodgers scratched Andre Ethier from last night’s lineup, as the outfielder continues to be hampered by a sore left calf, according to Austin Laymance of MLB.com. Upon arriving at Dodger Stadium, Ethier was sent to be examined by team physicians after he complained of discomfort in his leg. Manager Don Mattingly told reporters that the ailment has lingered since Ethier was hit by a pitch during a contest against the Chicago Cubs on Aug. 4. "They wanted the doctor to look at him because it's been a while and all of a sudden it got worse," Mattingly said. While Mattingly hadn’t seen Ethier before speaking with reporters, he was told by doctors that the outfielder is “OK.” The skipper was still debating whether or not Ethier would be available off the bench last night, so it doesn’t sound like an injury that will keep him out for an extended stretch. While fellow outfielders, including Carl Crawford and Matt Kemp, have dealt with injuries this season, Ethier has proven durable. However, his production at the plate has been less than what he’s hoped for, as the 31-year-old has hit .267/.350/.393 with 25 doubles and seven home runs over 452 plate appearances.
