LOS ANGELES DODGERS’ RIGHT FIELDER ETHIER, TO THE DL
Mon, 09 Jul 2012 12:39 PM EDT

L.A Dodgers right fielder Andre Ethier was placed on the 15-day DL with a strained left oblique. The move is retroactive to June 28, and Ethier is anticipated to return to the lineup following the All-Star break.

“We just believed it was the wise decision at this point,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said.

The Los Angeles Dodgers turned on 2nd baseman Mark Ellis to take Ethier’s place on the roster. NFL lines

Ethier seemed like he was ready to return to the lineup last week but experienced some pain on a swing last Tuesday. He has not played since suffering the injury on a check swing June 27 in San Francisco.

“It was surely minor, but it is still there,” Mattingly said of Ethier’s injury. “He said as long as I don’t miss, I could be fine, but you miss sometimes. It just did not look to make any sense of taking an opportunity of missing a month, which was the situation we had with Matt (Kemp) where we presumed he was ready. I don’t really want that.”

Ethier looked fine hitting before last Wednesday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds and related he intends to be back after the break.

“Clearly I’m disappointed, but I do not disagree with the thinking,” Ethier said. “I understand what they’re trying to do.”

Ethier asserted he felt better and failed to expect requiring a rehabilitation game before going back to the team. Mattingly concluded, asserting Ethier just needed some time off.

“As long as he’s healthy I don’t think he’s going to need a rehab game,” the manager recounted. “I suspect he’ll be prepared to roll.”

Ellis has been gone for just about 7 weeks with a severe leg injury and just finished playing 4 rehab games with the Class-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes.

“It’s good to be back,” Ellis declared. “It was hard being gone. You do not feel so bad when the team is doing well and winning, but you’re feeling guilty when they go through some struggles. You’re feeling like you can be out there helping. You want to be a part of it when things are good and when things are bad.”

Kemp is still on a minor league rehab assignment in Rancho Cucamonga and went two-for-three with 2 singles, a walk, a strikeout and a run scored as the designated hitter on last Tuesday. He played 5 innings last Wednesday before progressing to seven and then 9 innings.

Mattingly expects Kemp to make his return after the All-Star break and for the Dodgers to again resemble the team that had the best record in baseball before being hit with a rash of injuries.

“When we come out after those 4 days off we think like we are going to come back,” Mattingly asserted. “We’re going to get Matt back, we’re going to get Andre back, and we’re getting Mark back… So we’ll really be back to our club.”

Ethier was batting .291 when he was hurt, with 10 home runs and 55 runs batted in.
