Dodgers place RF Andre Ethier on disabled list, activate 2B Mark Ellis
The Los Angeles Dodgers placed rightfielder Andre Ethier on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday with a strained left oblique. The move is retroactive to June 28.
Ethier, who is hitting .291 with 10 home runs and 55 RBIs and who signed a five-year, $85 million extension on June 12, originally suffered the injury last Wednesday and had missed the previous six games. Now he will be out until after the All-Star break.
The Dodgers are also without centerfielder Matt Kemp, who has been out since the end of May after reinjuring his left hamstring.
