Last week, Buster Olney of ESPN reported that the Los Angeles Dodgers could eventually decide to trade outfielder Andre Ethier. If they do, Matthew Cerrone of Mets Blog believes he could be a solid gamble for the New York Metropolitans. Ethier signed a six-year, $95.5 million contract with the Dodgers last season. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman spoke with rival executives that said Los Angeles would have to pay at least half of the remaining deal – or take back an equally bad contract – to trade Ethier. Cerrone notes that Mets general manager Sandy Alderson would like to trade for a power bat this summer, rather than sign a lead-off hitting outfielder to a short-term deal over the winter. He believes that Ethier at roughly $10 million a year for the next three years guaranteed could be a nice compliment to Lucas Duda in left field. After hitting .284/.351/.460 with 36 doubles and 20 home runs last season, Ethier is off to a slow start this year. The 31-year-old has maintained a batting line of .232/.321/.356 with 10 doubles and four home runs over 221 plate appearances so far this season.
