Andre Ethier- fractured pinky- will be placed on DL

Postby Rimrattlerla11 » Sun May 16, 2010 12:29 am

Bad news for Dodger fans. #AndreEthier has a fracture in his pinky. He'll see two doctors, including a hand specialist, in L.A. tomorrow.


From Jill Painter on Twitter.

There was no initial indication, from Dodgers trainer Stan Conte or anyone else, as to whether Ethier is likely to be placed on the disabled list. But each player holds the bat slightly differently, and Ethier seemed to indicate that this injury would prevent him from holding it the way he normally does.

"It's a flexion thing,'' he said. "I kind of position that pinky right above the knob, and it's a leverage point in my swing.''


Dodgers manager Joe Torre said that if Ethier can avoid the DL, backup outfielders Reed Johnson and Garret Anderson, who started in place of Ethier on Saturday, would share time. If Ethier goes onto the DL, the most likely candidate to replace him on the roster would be Triple-A Albuquerque outfielder Xavier Paul, but Torre said Paul left Saturday night's game at Salt Lake after being hit by a ball.

I just died a little inside.

I don't know how long the DL stint would be, but personally I'd prefer him to go there and recover completely instead of playing through it...

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that outfielder Andre Ethier (finger) will be placed on the disabled list Tuesday.

Ethier was diagnosed with a fracture at the tip of his pinkie finger on Saturday night and could miss more than the allotted 15 days. It's too bad, considering he was leading the majors in a host of offensive categories with a .392 batting average and 38 RBI. Xavier Paul is probably going to be recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque, but veterans Garret Anderson and Reed Johnson will see the majority of starts in right field while Ethier is out.
