Found June 10, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Los Angeles Dodgers held outfielder Andre Ethier out of yesterday’s finale against the Atlanta Braves due to a sore right foot, and manager Don Mattingly said that the ailment could keep him out of Monday’s series opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks, according to Austin Laymance of "He was unavailable," manager Don Mattingly said after Sunday's game. "He tried to swing early in the day and wasn't able to do it. I don't know where we'll be [Monday] with that. He just hasn't been as consistent as we're used to seeing out of him and I know that concerns him, and concerns us also," Mattingly said. "We're trying to get him back to his old self." Ethier was still feeling the effects of fouling a pitch off his foot on Saturday night. He limped out of the clubhouse following that contest, and the injury is severe enough that he’s questionable to suit up tonight. It’s been a tough start to the season for Ethier. The 31-year-old has struggled to the tune of a .229/.316/.348 batting line with 10 doubles, one triple and four home runs over 228 plate appearances. Beyond Ethier, the Dodgers are also without outfielders Matt Kemp and Carl Crawford. As a result, rookie Scott Van Slyke was hitting cleanup, while Luis Cruz was hitting in the No. 3 hole.
