Report: Andre Ethier trade 'not happening'

Tuesday October 30th, 2012

Rumors of the Dodgers trading Andre Ethier are "short-lived," according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

"Not happening,'' says a person familiar with the Dodgers' thinking.

ESPN's Buster Olney tweeted the possibility of a trade involving Ethier and unloading his contract.

However, two people familiar with the Dodgers' thinking shot it down Tuesday. A trade for Ethier would be a little unusual in that Ethier was just signed to an $85 million, five-year extension by the Dodgers.
