Ethier is out of the lineup Thursday, Dodgers reporter Alanna Rizzo reports.

It would have been a tough matchup for Ethier with lefty Madison Bumgarner on the mound for the Giants, so southpaw-killer Scott Van Slyke will get the start in right field Thursday.

Ethier is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rockies, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

Ethier has made nine straight starts in right field, but will take a seat in favor of Kike Hernandez on Sunday afternoon. With lefty Jorge De La Rosa on the mound for Colorado, the timing was right for Ethier to get a regular day of rest.

Ethier has started seven of the past eight games and has thrived with additional playing time, as he's batting a cool .321/.426/.625.

With Carl Crawford seemingly out for a while with a torn oblique, Ethier should play every day in left field, particularly against RHP. He is 4-for-9 versus southpaws however, so he could see time against them as well.

Ethier is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Giants, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Ethier has been unable to solve Tuesday's starter Madison Bumgarner to this point in his career (3-for-24 with nine strikeouts), so it comes as no surprise that he's out of the lineup. Manager Don Mattingly will go with an all right-handed-batting outfield consisting of Alex Guerrero, Scott Van Slyke and Enrique Hernandez.

Ethier will start in right field and bat second in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday.

Ethier replaced Yasiel Puig during Friday's game against the Padres after Puig suffered a hamstring injury. While there is no word on how long Puig will be out, Ethier will likely continue to fill in in right field in his absence.

Ethier replaced an injured Yasiel Puig in Friday's win over the Padres, going 1-for-1. After the game, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly wasn't sure whether Puig would need to go on the DL, the Orange County Register reports. "We'll kind of see where we're at tomorrow," Mattingly said.

If Puig were to miss any extended time, obviously Ethier would benefit the most from the open spot in the lineup, though it would also provide another opportunity for Scott Van Slyke to play.

Ethier went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and a HBP starting in place of Yasiel Puig (hamstring) Wednesday.

Ethier is now batting a healthy .333/.429/.667. Puig will play every day and so will Joc Pederson, so it would seem Ethier's best bet would be a trade or a Carl Crawford slump.

Ethier will make another start in right field Wednesday in place of Yasiel Puig (hamstring).

With Puig apparently quite ready to return, Ethier will be afforded a second straight start. He will man right and bat fifth against right-hander Taijuan Walker, after hitting his first home run of the year off Hisashi Iwakuma in Tuesday's comeback victory.

Ethier will get the start in right field Tuesday.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is off Tuesday, allowing Ethier to slot in to the six hole in the Dodgers' lineup against righty Hisashi Iwakuma. After getting off to a slow start, Ethier now has three hits in his last five at-bats, including a double and a triple.

Ethier made his second consecutive start Sunday against Arizona and went 2-for-4 with a walk and a triple.

Ethier had been 0-for-6 coming into this one. He should be able to carve out enough at-bats to have some NL-only value, but unless Carl Crawford falls apart, Ethier's playing time will remain spotty.
