The Dodgers are targeting mid-to-late June for Ethier's return from a fractured right tibia, David Vassegh of 570 AM LA Sports radio reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

According to manager Dave Roberts, a CT scan Friday showed improvement in Ethier's leg, enough to where he can start working out on an anti-gravity machine. This mid-to-late June estimate falls pretty much right in the middle of the original 10-to-14 week timetable for Ethier's recovery.

Ethier will undergo X-rays on his shin Friday morning, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports radio reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Dodgers want to get an idea of how the shin is healing, so they will send Ethier for a follow-up exam. Handed a 10-to-14 week estimated recovery timetable after suffering the injury in spring training, he is not expected back until June at the earliest.

Ethier (leg) was transferred to the 60-day DL Sunday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ethier isn't expected back until June, so the Dodgers will make this procedural move to clear up an extra spot on the 40-man roster. As it currently stands, the Dodgers are down three left fielders, so the need for the extra roster spot emerged a bit sooner than expected.

Ethier (leg) was placed on the 15-day DL Sunday, MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ethier remains on track for an early-June return after suffering a broken right tibia, so this roster move comes at no surprise. The team may soon elect to move him to the 60-day DL in order to free up a spot on the 40-man roster.

Ethier sustained a right tibia fracture and is expected to miss 10-to-14 weeks.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Initial x-rays came back negative after Ethier fouled a ball off his shin Friday, but follow up results spotted the fracture. It won't require surgery, but he's still looking at a lengthy absence that could sideline him until at least the start of June. Carl Crawford and Scott Van Slyke figure to step in and shoulder the left field duties in Ethier's stead.

The results of Ethier's (shin) bone scan won't be released until Tuesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ethier took a foul ball off his right shin during Friday's game against Arizona and the extent of the injury remains unclear. If he's forced to miss further time away from the diamond, Carl Crawford is the favorite to step in at right field.

Ethier underwent a bone scan on his lower leg Monday, though the results have yet to be revealed, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ethier has been sidelined since fouling a ball off the leg, which produced a contusion and still hasn't allowed the outfielder to put weight on the area. Monday's evaluation should provide some clarification into the next stage of his recovery effort.

Ethier (leg) was spotted on crutches Monday morning, according to MLB.com's Ken Gurnick.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ethier was expected to return in 2-to-3 days after fouling a ball off his leg Friday, but it looks like he is still feeling plenty of soreness. He could be back sometime this week of course, but with him still needing assistance to move around several days later, he may be dealing with more than just a simple bruise.

Ethier (leg) is expected to return to the lineup within the next few days, Joey Kaufman of the Orange County Register reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ethier was taken in for X-rays Friday after fouling a pitch off his shin, but they came back negative and he was diagnosed with a lower leg contusion. He was on crutches in the Dodgers' clubhouse earlier Saturday, but he said, "I feel a lot better than I did yesterday," according to Kaufman. Look for Ethier to rejoin the lineup early next week.
