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

With lefty Jon Lester on the mound for the Cubs, the Dodgers will deploy noted southpaw killer Scott Van Slyke in left field. Ethier is having a very solid season, however, slashing .269/.348/.473. That said, he may sit again Friday against lefty Justin Nicolino.

Ethier is out of the lineup for the second straight day.

With left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada on the hill for the Cubs, Ethier will remain out of the lineup as the Dodgers go with a starting outfield of Yasiel Puig, Joc Pederson and Scott Van Slyke. Either is hitting just .210 (13-for-62) in the month of June.

Ethier is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers.

The returning Scott Van Slyke will take over in left field against lefty Wandy Rodriguez, as Ethier sits following six straight starts. Ethier is just 2-for-15 in his last four games but figures to continue starting against right-handed pitching.

Ethier will still see the lion's share of the playing time in left field, though he will lose some at-bats to the returning Scott Van Slyke (back) next week, the Dodgers' official site reports.

Van Slyke is expected to return on Monday and should see most of the at-bats versus LHP.

Ethier is out of the lineup against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Ethier will take a seat after registering two hits and four RBI in Monday's series-opening win. The Dodgers will go with Yasiel Puig in right, Chris Heisey in center and Alex Guerrero in left.

Ethier hit his eighth home run in Monday's win over Arizona, part of a 2-for-4 effort with four RBIs.

All eight of Ethier's homers have come off right-handers, and of Ethier's 17 extra-base hits, only one, a double, has come off left-handed hitting. As the Dodgers get healthier, Ethier's platoon will only get stricter, but he continues to mash righties.

Ethier is out of the lineup Saturday against the Cardinals.

Yasiel Puig was activated from the DL on Saturday, but Ethier's absence likely has more to do with the lefty (Jaime Garcia) that's on the mound for St. Louis. Ethier has hit .288/.371/.503 with seven homers in 52 games this season, which has likely earned him most of the starts in left against right-handed pitching moving forward.

Ethier is not in the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies, David Vassegh of Dodger Talk reports.

Ethier has started the last four games, but he'll rest for Game 1 before, in all likelihood, returning to the mix for Game 2. The Dodgers will go with Chris Heisey in right field, and he'll bat second against Rockies' left-hander Jorge De La Rosa.

Ethier is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Braves.

With lefty Alex Wood due up for Atlanta, manager Don Mattingly will sit Ethier down following five straight starts and slot Chris Heisey in as his right fielder. The Dodgers haven't really missed a beat since Yasiel Puig (hamstring) hit the DL thanks in large part to Ethier, who is batting .311/.403/.546 in 139 plate appearances this season. He is 6-for-19 against lefties, but Ethier's exposure to lefties figures to remain limited.
