The Los Angeles Dodgers are "open" to a potential trade for outfielder Andre Ethier, ESPN.com's Buster Olney reported Monday night via Twitter.
Olney notes that Ethier recently signed a hefty contract extension, which would make any deal surprising. But the 30-year-old Ethier's stats took a slight turn down after he signed the contract extension in June.
After signing the contract extension in June, Ethier hit .282 with a .780 OPS. In the two months before, his OPS was about .860. Overall last season, Ethier hit .284 with an .811 OPS.
