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 MLB.com.
"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
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.

The Dodgers recalled former first-round pick Chris Withrow on Tuesday to help a beleaguered bullpen.
Withrow was drafted with the 20th pick in the 2007 MLB Draft out of Midland Christian High School in Texas.
The Dodgers moved Withrow to the bullpen halfway through last season, and he's fared much better as a reliever than he was as a starter.
It's not good...

The Los Angeles Dodgers are not coming back. I might not be the first to say it, but it seems taboo to even admit the season is lost yet. The injuries are too much to overcome, and every time the team seems poised to get healthy, something else goes wrong. Yesterday, Matt Kemp suffered a setback in his rehab and is not ready for a minor league assignment.
